Overview

The French Marble Clock is the first complete book on the subject, written by Nicolas Thorpe, who is an enthusiastic collector. The opening chapters reveal the history of the marble clock along with new information about their origins and makers. The author then takes a detailed look at the famous pendule de Paris movement that is found in many French mantle clocks from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Sound and sensible advice is given about examining, dating, and buying, together with a clear explanation of the function of parts of the movement. This is essential reading for those wishing to restore timepieces or clocks with striking movements. The chapters on restoration and clock case styles are all clearly illustrated.
