The value will depend upon what the clock case is made of. Please forward some photos to help me with that. Greg
This clock has a fairly standard French movement. The movement and clock are good quality. Still typing...
The number on the pendulum should match the one on the back plate of the clock. They started life together.
The other number is ***** a factory reference number. The enamel dial looks in good condition and that is important.
The case looks to be brass and that makes sense because it was probably originally lacquered to prevent it losing its shine.
That lacquer deteriorates over time and looks a bit 'streaky'. Nothing wrong with that. Best left alone.
All clocks have fallen in value in the past 10/15 tears but i believe that a sensible auction estimate for yours would be £150/200. In a clock shop they would ask much more but of course give a guarantee. Greg
