Condition report

Attractive Louis-Philippe Gilt-Brass Figural Mantel Clock: In “as found” condition. Light wear and tarnish to the surface from age. Four of the numeral chapters are missing. Two others are off but present. The movement is intact and the pendulum is present. No winding key. Very good detailing to the casting. We are unsure of its working condition.
