CONDITION: cast case is in very good condition. The gilding is excellent, complete with burnished highlights. The clock has no front bezel or rear door because it once lived under a glass dome.

The slightly awkward orientation of the hand on the ax and completely burnished ax handle may indicate a replaced part or simply a questionable artistic choice. Original steel hands. Signed Japy movement strikes on a bell and bears the "Grande Med d’Honneur" award. Movement is oily. The warrior -- probably a marine or pirate as indicated by the anchors on his jacket -- is particularly well represented.
