    Was looking for a period mantel clock for my home and bought this one at a local auction in December 2013 for £66.00. It was described as a "Mahogany balloon-shaped mantel clock with key" Inside it says "Made in France" and the initials "S" (I think, see picture) and "F". Apart from that I know absolutely nothing about it and, in spite of trawling the internet and antique shops, have not seen another one that looks the same. If anyone can throw any light on my mystery clock, it would be very much appreciated!

      luck to you on getting info it looks like an early 20th century piece but an auful lot of records got lost in France between WW1 and WW2,..so hard to find out anything on the oddballs( have a couple ) if anyone knows it wil be someone in here tho ! very prety piece worth keeping running

      S and F is Slow and Fast. If the clock runs too fast, you move the little bar above it toward the S, and vice versa.
