The most sweet silk suspension, time only French Empire mantle clock (unsigned) that has been through every war since 1810 and survived . . . the dial is distressed but that will be on the way to Marnie Myall in Melbourne, tomorrow. These small petite hands hold further clues as does the pair of gilded lions that have been partially covered by a mahogany slab case.  All reinstated after an overall clean and rub-up, no glass in bezel though _ dial gone to Melbourne for an acrylic fix.
