French Dore & Silk String Figure Clock: the time and half hour bell striking movement is marked Raingo-Freres-Paris. The 3 1/2″ porcelain dial is marked Raingo Freres Paris also, but is worn. The case has children, an anchor and net on the top; one child holds a lantern; the smallest child has a figure and saint Madonna engraved on it. The lower case has cattail, lily pads, coral, acanthus leaf and oak leaf designs.

(The movement winds ok, but has no pendulum to fit it; the dial has a hairline. The clock’s ticking with no pendulum; the hands need replaced.)

18″ x 15 1/4″
