French Animated Silk String Clock: made of bronze dore and bronze with an 8 day time, with half hour bell striking movement, unmarked. The 4″ silver dial has a wreath shaped bezel. The mechanized part is the two glass tubes, they would spin around, giving the affect of running water. The case is topped with a figure of Poseidon with his trident; other designs included cornucopia, cattails, swans and shells. Both springs wind properly. The strike also works. The swans are white metal.

(No pendulum or string; tested on the fast tick. The mechanical part is not connected, its geared wheels are with the clock. Some cleaning is needed.)

21″ x 7 3/4″
