Portico clock - Napoleon III
Mechanical - 8-day movement - the bell chimes every half-hour

Pretty portico pendulum with four columns. Napoleon III with brass marquetry and coloured patterns inlaid in black pear wood - 19th century era, between 1850 and 1870.
The movement works. There is no signature but the numeral 255. Mechanism with key and pendulum. Springs in good condition. Needs to be rewound every day with the key supplied. Equipped with a chime (bell and hammer) that sounds on the half-hour.
The pendulum was changed during a service in 2010.
Pendulum in very good condition. No flaws on the marquetry. Some signs of wear due to age. small dent on the top cornice and two minor chips on the back of the top cornice but they have been blackened and can barely be seen.
the white enamel on the dial is slightly flaky at the area of the key but is still white.
Measures 50 cm in height, 27 cm in width and 16 cm in depth
