A very good four glass mantel clock and candelabra clock set. The superb clock with origial gilding is of a vertical rectangular shape with an ormolu mounted urn to the top.

The dial is protected by a glazed ormolu bezel. The movement is of 8 day duration, bell striking the hours and halves by rack strike. The steel suspended pendulum has a starburst bob. The two candelabra are very elegant and have a white marble base with recessed ormolu floral mount. The stem of the candelabras are of reeded white marble. The candelabras have an ormolu urn finial to the centre. A very fine and large three piece set. France circa 1880. 18 inches high by 8.75 inches wide by 5.5 inches deep.
