Lot 1260 - 22 Jan 2019
A French bronzed 'lighthouse' automaton 8 day mantel clock, circa 1900, the turret with separate barometer and thermometer, (lacking glass) over a 30 hour automaton base and marble plinth, 43.5cm high, (two keys). Illustrated
Timepiece- not a clock. Has two dials for time and an aneroid barometer- has scales to the sides for thermometers but no tubes or glass. Very dirty with buildup of dirt from handling and use. Top turns clockwise but all mechanisms are untested and is sold 'as found'. Some later screws, balustrade mid-rail mis-shapen and slightly loose.
