I repaired this large, heavy French mantel clock in a slate and marble case. It has a visible escapement and an enamel dial. I didn’t weigh the clock, but I think it is around 20 pounds! It’s an 8-day clock that strikes the hours on a bell.
The movement has round plates and a Brocot-type regulator. These French clock movements are delicate and beautifully made. They have small pivots and pinions and need very little power to run.
Repair job 6836. I polished the pivots, installed a new suspension spring, repaired the regulator, repaired the outer end of the strike mainspring, and installed 6 bushings.
