French movement but is it French

by Albert

I have a mantel/bracket clock which has a Vincenti two trian movement strikes on a gong half and hourly.The case is black I think called adamantine is the term.

It is would made to look like marbel.It has gilt brass ornamention around the front and the front feet are part of the ornamention.The back feet are just square wood in black.It is a dainty design arched top graduating in arched shoulders coming down to the sides and slightly flaring at the bottom.The case looks very much like an American one.

Now can someone tell me if any of the American clock makers ever used French movements. Vincenti in particualar.Thanks
