A Fully Functional Mantle clock or shelf clock in very good condition. I could not find any reference about this particular clock, but model would Conquistadores or Pilgrim; for, the side of the clock has a face on both sides that are made out copper and tin, done with a nice patina. The first picture shown, displays the top of the clock. The top is not actual marble. The base is held up by four claw feet that is made out of the same material of the faces-Tin/lead. Clock contains five Scroll Pediment designs. Four around the clock and one at the base of the clock. The one at the base has flowers blooming and there is pistols out of the flower. Possibly at one time the etchings of the scrolls had had gold in the carving. There is no highlight or very little at all. There is on OK picture of the Scroll Pediment on the last picture on the bottom. All pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them. Clock has been restored and lubed.
