c.1820 French Keyhole Skeleton Clock.
An early 19th century French weight-driven keyhole skeleton clock with an ormolu frame, delicate gear work and marble base.
The shaped ormolu frame supports the two thin vertical movement plates. The particularly finely cut vertically oriented gear work has wolf tooth teeth, lantern pinions, double weights, and a single armed pinwheel escapement. The pendulum has a steel rod, brass lenticular bob, screwed beat adjustment and knife-edge escapement.
The white porcelain chapter ring dial has inner and outer cast ormolu bezels, cast ormolu hands, black Arabic numbers for the hours and Arabic 15-minute marks.
