    Today I have a beautiful large Jema Holland Riccoco Cherub Clock numbered 437. Once again the attention to detail in the moulding and the beautiful lustre finish is certainly something to admire.
    Locating one of these is likened to searching for a needle in a hay stack. This one came from a former collector who was downsizing to a smaller home and needed to clear a lot of his much loved Clocks. it is in absolute top condition and running like new. As per with all Jema Clocks it has a German Mechanism that runs nicely once given a fresh new Clock oil bath.
    Feel free to make any comments or ask questions.
    Many thanks Hutchy777

      brunswick, if at all possible I would love to see a photo of your double cherub. by the numbering you have provided I know it is not a Jema Holland I am looking in my archives to see who the maker of yours was. As their were many clock companies doing Roccoco/Riccoco clocks. I think mainly french background was where they started TBC though.
