This is a magical time piece; c. 1810-1820 gilded bronze with a wondrous Putti holding up grapes, standing atop a rectangular base next to a working clock with Roman numerals on the face and working hands. From the Regency period, the theme is about roses, bees, and at the base roses and leaves intertwined with torches. These flank a sun symbol with a rose at the center; truly a symbol of Love and Life. The clock is working and has the original gilded key. I am not an expert on these pieces. However, it appears to be in excellent condition. There is no mark to be seen on the piece, however, it is determined to be French. 5.75" w x 6.5" t x 2.5" d

We will attempt to respond to all orders within 24 hours. We do travel and exhibit, so your patience is appreciated in the event of a delay.

Shipping, Handling, Insurance Policy
Please Read This Carefully:
■Please do not attempt to return an item due to shipping damage. Should it occur in spite of my careful packaging, this must be handled through the shipping agent with an insurance claim. I will be happy to assist in this. Always be sure to retain all original packaging if a claim is to be made as the shipping agent will request to examine it.
Purchase more than one item at one time and I will ship them together (if possible) to save you money on shipping.
■All items are expertly packed and insured. Our shipments are packed to give the buyer absolutely NO worries about carrier theft or pilferage. Our return address gives the shop-owners name rather than the business name, and no insurance stamps or stickers give any clues as to the valuable contents. Buyer pays shipping, handling and insurance. We ship items daily (Monday-Friday) via USPS. We will schedule UPS, or FEDEX on request and ship once weekly via these carriers. Depending on the size, value, and fragility of your item, there may be a delay to allow adequate time for safely packing your items; we will always disclose delays if any. We are always happy to email an estimate of time and cost, if you will provide your zip code to us.
Shipment: Your item will be mailed after verified clearance of your Personal or Business check (please allow 15 banking days) and after actual funding of PayPal "E-Check" (please allow 5 banking days).
If you pay with money orders or credit cards, your item will be mailed on the next mailing day following receipt of funds in our accounts. PayPal and all credit card purchases will be shipped to verified/confirmed credit card billing addresses ONLY; please ensure that you give the correct shipping address on your purchase order.
We ship worldwide, however, the costs and time involved to receive items may be greater. We do not send as a "Gift".
We will not charge a restocking fee for items that are returned due to inaccurate description, or flaws that were missed and inadvertently not disclosed. However, returns for buyer’s remorse, or any other reason not mentioned above will be charged a restocking fee of 20% of the original purchase price; this applies to failed layaways as well. The layaway credit will be reduced by the restocking fee.
This shop offers a layaway plan for purchases. The Return Policy does not apply to layaway purchases, and Layaway Plans may vary by item. It is extremely important to read and understand our Layaway Plan below, and clarify any terms before you enter into a Layaway Plan agreement.
