Description: Clocks- 2 (Two) French 8 day time and strike mantel clocks: (1) marble and bronze figural of bearded gentleman reading. Japy movement with countwheel and bell striking; (2) an ornate cast brass case with bell striking movement and white enamel dial both signed Henry Bell, Paris

Condition Report: both clocks are in good original condition, but the marble case has some chips on its front and ends, and its dial has a hairline. Its movement needs a pendulum. The case of the brass clock has an old patina, and its dial and convex glass are fine. Figural is 18 x 13 x 5.5 in; brass is 6 x 11.5 x 4. Both movements tick and strike but were not tested long term
