Schmidlin and decorated by Ellis Leigh. She sourced most of the furniture and decorative arts from France through Lord & Taylor. The last photo shows this very clock in the house in the 1950s. The gilt wood is in outstanding condition.
Bright antique gilt surface, which is the value of this piece. Condition: The "rays" are very delicate and easily damaged when handled incorrectly. Some of them were slightly loose, which caused some flaking to the gesso at the joints. The clock itself is not presently working. I did not make any attempted to wind it.
It comes with a key, but not positive if it is the original key. The clock portion could be switched out for a small mirror, if desired.
