Customer Question

I have a Ginori Ceramic clock case with a french movement, I think it may be late 1800's. the number inside the case scratched in the surface is 66899 the numbers on the base below Ginori are 179 753 . The Clock is green, blue, yellow and white in a majolica style, with two heads back to back, facing sideways, on the top, looking very Germanic. There is a finial top above the two heads. It stands 40 cm high. Can you identify this for me

Hello,My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the clock so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures.

This is a Richard Ginori majolica clock made 1842 to 1860 in a majolica ceramic case . The clock mechanism in these clocks were a Japy Freres two train key wind movement. This clock has a current value of $1200 to $1500.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.

Thank you for this information, would it have been made in Italy and if so where. If another country where ?
Expert:  rarewares replied 1 year ago.
Sorry that I wasn't clear on that point. It was made in Doccia, near Florence, Italy. They expanded to other cities (Naples, Milan) in later years.They bought clock faces and movements from France to put in their clocks, so the case it Italian and the clock is French.
