A late-19th century French animated Bollard lighthouse clock with a double sided clock, barometer and thermometer. When wound the animation movement located in the base rotates the top for several hours.
The gilt, silvered and patinated bronze case is in the shape of a decorative bollard. The lower patinated section has nautically inspired mounts including an anchor, life preserver and block and tackle and and sits on a black Belgian marble base. The cylindrical top section has four columns that support a vaulted top and contains a clock with tandem clock dials, a barometer, thermometer and compass.
The painted silvered clock dials have Roman numerals for the hours, Arabic numbers for the five-minute marks and steel-cut hands.
The eight-day time only clock movement has the fast/slow out the front and a cylinder balance platform.
