French Mobier (Comptoise) Tall Case Clock: circa Louis XIV to XV with a weight driven, bell striking original movement. The dial has porcelain Roman numerals and minutes in 5 minute increments. The name Lance A Jussev is below the dial. It has a crown wheel escapement and looks like a 30 day movement made of steel and brass. The dark colored case has carved and applied decorations of flowers and leaves. The case brass bezel has chickens and fleur-di-lis designs. The case brass hands are also original. The pendulum with it has a starburst ball on wire rod.
(The small porcelain piece of the dial is fractured. The pendulum seems to be too long, as it extends below the oval window in the case’s front. It does have the appropriate hook on the end for the suspension.) Working condition not determined at this time.
