For sale is a beautiful French Mantel Clock by Samuel Marti - Medaille de Bronze that refers to the period 1867 - 1889

The movement and original pendulum are both incised with matching low production serial number 152c

The clock is in perfect working condition and all the parts are original from that time.

The clock weight approximately 22 pounds and it measures 16" in height, 4 3/4" in width and 8 3/4" lenght.

I don't know, but I think it might need some minor adjustment on the movement, when winding with the key it works perfect, it has been inside a box wrapped for over 5 years, but I'm not a clock expert, it might not need any adjustment, but if it does I don't think is nothing major as the clock functions fine when wind with the key.

Note: The round glass in the front has a hair line crack across, also a minor fix.  This does not affect the functionality of the clock!
