c.1880 Franco-Prussian German Silver and Bronze Clock, dragon, lions
Elegant clock made circa 1880 of German silver and bronze and French clockwork – beyond that I don’t have much information. A dragon sits astride the clock and two lions flank it, giving the piece a very dramatic feel. The clock is largely in excellent condition, though there is some wear [though it isn’t currently working……needs cleaning and a pendulum] The gargoyle has had one wing repaired but the repair is hardly visible. Measures 14.5″ long, 20.5″ tall, 8″ wide. A really striking piece.
