Clock from an old French Bar, Brasserie or Tabac.
Trompe l'oeil decoration with wood nerve.
These clocks were often given away as advertisement for tobacco brands and used to hang over the bar.
Because the clocks were made out of iron the painting often became weathered and the clocks were repainted in an other colour.
This didn't happen to this big clock. The painting looks almost new and also the letters are completely intact. There are no dents in the thin iron. A beautiful clock to hang in your hall, kitchen or living room.
A good clockmaker can easily change the original clock to batteries.
