Marble Mantel Clock by Santiago James Moore French
Cm 40 high x 30 wide x 13 deep
A 19th century black marble library / mantel clock with marks by English clockmaker Santiago James Moore French. The simple, almost "Art Deco" look of this clock is interesting for its time, when prevailing taste was more for traditional bracket-style wooden cased clocks. French was a active member of the royally sanctioned "Clockmakers Company" organization, and created timepieces for royalty and aristocracy of the mid-19th century. The clock is functioning, and previous to delivery it will be professionally cleaned and adjusted to ensure accuracy.
