This charming French style clock came in for a full service. The dial was also slightly loose. A lovely little clock.
An antique French 14 day clock is a clock that was made in France in the past and is designed to run for 14 days on a single winding. These clocks were typically made in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and were often elaborately decorated with ornate cases and intricate movements.
The clock movement is powered by a mainspring that is wound up using a key. When the mainspring is fully wound, it stores enough energy to power the clock for two weeks before it needs to be wound again. The clock typically has a small dial on the face that indicates when it is time to wind the clock.
Antique French 14 day clocks can be highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts due to their historical significance, fine craftsmanship, and intricate design. However, as with any antique clock, it is important to have it serviced regularly by a professional clockmaker to keep it in good working order.
