Marie Antoinette Clock, 1996 Franklin Mint Offering. Cobalt Blue Porcelain Case w/ Gold Gilt Trim and 60+ Faux Diamond Crystals. Runs w/ 2 Bell French Strike.
Beautiful antique white onyx case clock here. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself. This clock was recently acquired from a party whom had a lot of Franklin Mint items in his collection. Offered here is the Marie Antoinette Clock that Franklin Mint issued in 1996. Has a cobalt blue porcelain case with 22k gold gilt trim adorning the entire piece.
The case is shaped like a lyre. The case was crafted in Malaysia, the movement comes from Germany.The clock is fashioned after the original that at the time was held by the Victoria and Albert Museum. Some very minor surface scratching to the case. Nice sunburst finial on the top of the clock case.
Has 60+ faux diamond crystals around the bezel of the clock. This clock is just beautiful. We have acquired a few of these clocks in the past 25 years and they never last long. So, do not miss this one. No original box or paper materials come with this offering.
The clock will come with a wind key, not the original. Nice brass movement on this clock. The clock has been running well since we acquired it.Made by Franz Hermle of Germany. The clock has a two bell French strike.
Strikes once on the half hour and the number of hours on the hour. The clock does strike as expected. The clock stands 15.25" tall, by 6-5/8" across, by 4 wide.The clock face is 2.5 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. There is no representation that the clock is in original condition, or will continue to be in working order. The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description. We also have the pair of urns that Franklin Mint made that match up well with this clock to make it a clock and garniture set. Also done in the cobalt blue finish and 22kt gold gilt trim like the clock. The urns, which you hardly ever see come to the market place, are for sale separately on our online store site. The listing number for the urns is.
If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. Make sure that this clock meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. So, please carefully review all the attached pictures.
Ask all the questions you have, come see in person or send a friend to see the item on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it.
