French grandfather clockIn terms of age this is my French grandfather clock is my least-old specimen …Vintage at best!

Eight day Westminster chime, chain driven movement. The cabinet work is very good compared to some other ‘modern’ clocks. This example was made in France. As you can see, there is some good quality carving on the case. The chimes on this clock also sound extremely good. Massive movement.
