French Industrial Steam Engine Clock
Attributed to Guilmet, circa 1890. Marked 'BREVETE S.G.D.G.'. A cylinder and piston with a vertical connecting rod powers the flywheel with a centrifugal governor assembly. The cylinder has two large fireboxes on either side mounted with boilers with all attendant pressure lines and tubing leading to the cylinder. There is also a barometer over the right firebox and a thermometer behind the cylinder. The automation is driven by a separate spring motor housed in the base, powering the flywheel. Featuring gilt and two tone patinated bronze throughout on a rouge marble base.
|19 x 13 1/2 x 7 in.|
Restoration to feet. Spring is good and wheel spins freely. The works are complete, but may need adjustments. The clock side is working and runs.
