Up for sale is an Early Antique French Figural/Gilt/ Bronze Statue Clock of a Knight with Sword- Signed AVI. This clock was inherited from a late relative who restored clocks. This one was noted to have been serviced last in June of 2019 and has a silk thread suspension. The clock ran when tested, but when we moved the clock off the shelf, the thread that holds the pendulum fell off.Other ebayers have informed is that this is an easy fix. Note: pendulum IS included (see last photo). This piece is absolutely stunning, with two tone metal work, marble panels, and white porcelain dial. Its in overall good condition- a couple of faded and tarnished spots on the front and a repaired chip by the left keyhole.
We were amazed that the knight still had his sword! The back seems to have caved in a bit over the years, but we were informed that this is not abnormal and does not really effect the clock.
The top statue is signed AVI. Someone said that this might be a signature of Ammi Avi. Measures 12 x 17.5 x 5.5 inches. This item is part of an inherited estate.
