Portico clock with hour and half-hour striking, winding of equality and half-seconds in the centre, the counter-enamel marked Robin, circa 1800.
White enamel dial, Roman numerals for the hours, Arabic numerals for the quarter hours, openworked blued steel hands; round movement, the back plate in two parts with the upper part openworked, barrel, reverse pin escapement with alternating pins, steel anchor, equalizer winding, striking on a gong at the back, heavy balance compensated by a beating grill at the front, brass winding weight ; portal stand with two slightly tapering brass columns surmounted by a semi-circle bearing the mechanism, the whole mounted on a black marble base with six turned legs (two missing).
Austere and simple model, typical of the first examples of a series of clocks made in the workshops of Hubert Sarton (1748-1828) in Liege. For a discussion of this series see Jacques Nève, Les pendules d'Hubert Sarton (2009), 65-71.
