Le Francais Grandfather Clock

This elegant grandfather clock contains a large round clock face and oval body atop a base with scroll and leaf ornament and bun feet. The clock has a beautiful Windsor cherry wood finish with hues of antique gold throughout the carved details. The clock face features dual-tone, metallic and gold hands with Arabic numerals beneath a convex glass crystal. A leaf-tip pattern surrounds the clock face as well as the lower glass door, framing the hanging composition of weights and large, round pendulum. The weight of the wood together with delicate carved detail and high-grade materials creates an overall sophisticated aesthetic.
