c.1900 French Animated Oarsman Clock.

The patinated, silvered and gilt-bronze case depicts a small sailboat with a rocking oarsman up front on patinated waves and a red variegated base.

The patinated, gilt and silvered bronze case depicts a small sailing vessel with a multi-piece mast, draped sail and rudder amid patinated waves on a stepped variegated red base with bronze corner feet. The rowing patinated oarsman stands up front while the clock in the form of a secured barrel is towards the stern.
The 8-day time-only movement carries the GLT stamp, is wound and set out the back and incorporates the oarsman, suspended on an ‘X’ suspension, as the pendulum. They are connected via a linkage that is accessed and adjusted through a removable panel in the hull.
The painted gilt-bronzed dial has Arabic numbers for the hours, is signed by the retailer, ‘S. Smith and Sons, Trafalgar Square, London’, has steel spade hands, a gilt reflecting ring and beveled glass.
The oarsman, much like the Helmsman clock, incorporates the figure as the pendulum so the animation continues as long as the clock runs.
