A Late 18th century "Demoiselle de Honfleur" grandfather clock

Beautiful grandfather clock so-called "Demoiselle de Honfleur" in molded and carved oak veined.
The arched cornice an ornate headdress and molded and sculpted head flowering stems cart is ovalized to emphasize movement. Note the unusual presence of high and non-recessed portions windows, probably for the bells to hear better.
The middle section, framed by two graceful cornices with concave curves, is beautifully curved and observed on the door a rare sculpture finely perforated so-called "clear path" around the oculus. At the convex amplitude succeeds happily concave curve of the lower based on a high pedestal out of a molding.

This charming clock as well as refinement exudes a rare elegance which is specific to a manufactured home to a rich or a Norman castle regional furniture.

The mechanism is a beautiful lantern decorated movement Norman in enamel dial and pediment bronze rooster perched on a cartridge with three fleurs de lys framed by ears of wheat and a deck bronze bottom.
Completely original, very good condition, fine grained oak dense fine-grained, beautiful patina.
Work of Haute-Normandie circa 1800.
