French Wall Clock

French Wall Clock

The clock was purchased about 17 years ago by my parents from an Antique store in France. It was a gift and I could never find out how much they had paid.

The clock is made by Tavernier and I believe it is over 100 years old. The scenery on the clock is a French bakery and you can see the words "Boulangerie" in one of the paintings.

The bakers upper body in the pendulum is moving with every swing. The clock works accurately and
a loud bell announces the hours. A second set of bells rings a minute later used to be todays version of a snooze button on a modern clock, or so I was told by my parents.

The length of the entire clock is 51 inches and 13 inches wide.

I would love to find out more about the maker and the year and the value of the clock.

Thank you so much.
