This shape of clock in the mid 19th Century would only have been found in Chateaux and important large houses. The ring at the top was often used with a ribbon to suspend the clock between a pair of long French windows. Often there was a bow at the top of the ribbon. They were called bulls eye clocks (oeil de boeuf), because of their shape and were either classically decorated with a Greek key pattern like this one or with flowers. This clock has obviously been neglected for many years and the movement has rusted away. Nonetheless, we brought it back to life fitting a traditional pair of hands to a quartz mechanism behind the original silvered dial so that it now keeps perfect time running on a AA battery.
