This clock is a very very rare exquisite museum quality precision regulator pinwheel escapement skeleton table clock which has a long duration month duration movement and amazing huge proportions. The clock stands under its original glass dome which sits on its red marble base, the whole clock is to the highest quality and would be a must for any serious collector of regulator or skeleton clocks as can be expected from Ridel Of Paris.
I have seen these clocks sell for tens of thousands The clock has a skeleton design to it with the rafter frame containing a six wheel train going up to the pinwheel escapement with 2 large porcelain enamel dials to the front the bottom of which is signed Ridel Of Paris and the top one as Temsivral across the top of it. An identical model is illustrated in Kjellberg La Pendule Francais, 1997, page 316, Plate D Ridel A Paris only made extremely high quality complexed precision clocks and some of his examples can be seen only in museums which is where this one belongs to be honest, extremely rare and never seen for sale on the open market The clock sits on a very heavy solid red granite base which has a groove in the top to hold its original glass dome, the glass dome is in excellent condition undamaged The clock features 2 white large convex enamel dials with a 6.75 inch diameter seconds dial to the top with arabic regulator numerals and a 8 inch diameter enamel time dial to the bottom, both dials are in great condition with only a couple of small discrepancies. The clock is a 1/2 seconds beating movement like seen on high precision clocks like chronometers so it does 2 full revolutions of the top dial in a minute for precise timekeeping, the bottom dial is signed by the maker Ridel of Paris which dates the clock to Circa 1800 The clock has a very rare absolutely outstanding high quality regulator movement which has a month duration, the clock has fine quality 4 & 6 spoke wheels which have a stunning display look. This clock is a true investment and a real collectors clock and would take pride of place in anyones home and belongs in a museum.
