A MID 19TH CENTURY FRENCH GILT BRONZE MUSICAL AUTOMATON MANTEL CLOCK
the case formed as numerous reeds, raised on four feet cast with shells and rocailles and with two ducks to the base, the white enamelled dial with Roman numerals over the aperture revealing the ship on a silk ground with painted sky behind, with a pull cord activating the musical movement and automaton rocking ship, the clock movement with outside countwheel striking on a bell, with pendulum, 
44cm high

The clock movement is winding, ticking and striking and the automaton and music are working but not fully tested or guaranteed.

Estimate: £1,500-£2,000
