Lovely and rare French Morbier Comtoise enamel clock face with brass repoussé frame, circa 1850 - 1890. Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Was long ago part of a salvaged French grandfather clock. The name below roman numeral 12, Balancin, is the family name. This is common for the original grandfather clock to be personalized with the family surname on the enamel clock face; Cartas , the village where the family resided. This brass framing features two men working in a garden with a watering can and shovel. We have added a new clock battery mechanism on the backside, and black hands to the clock face so that the piece is now functional as a wall clock! Perfect on a wall hanging alone or among a grouping of French paintings, etc.

Measures 16 7/8” from bottom to tallest point in center at top and 10 3/4” wide; enamel face measures 8.5 inches in diameter.
