Sienna Marble Electric Bulle Four-glass Mantel Clock
REF: Bulle21 / LA356137
The beautifully figured Sienna marble four-glass case has brass framed bevelled glass panels to all sides, and a glazed hinged brass framed door to the front. The simple movement is fully displayed, the battery is mounted under the base, hidden from sight. The original painted dial has Arabic numerals and blued-steel hands, it is signed BULLE-CLOCK, BREVETÉ SGDG, PATENTED, FRANCE, the signed movement is visible through the centre cut-out. This pioneering electro-magnetic movement design was patented in 1920 by Favre-Bulle, and during the period 1920 to 1952 it is estimated that production was in the region of 300,000 clocks. The pendulum consists of a coil which passes over the curved bar magnet with three poles (North at either end and South in the centre, or vice versa). An electrical current is briefly imparted to the coil, it is attracted towards one end of the bar, it then naturally falls back to (and over-runs) the centre, when the impulse is again imparted to attract it to the other end.

Story Antique Clocks has clarified that the Sienna Marble Electric Bulle Four-glass Mantel Clock (LA356137) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1930
The clock is in very good original condition with the movement fully serviced by our FBHI horologist and in good working order. There is a very small chip repaired to the marble base at the front and the top of the glass to the right hand side of the case has a small amount of damage (see the images), both very minimal and does not detract the good original condition of the clock.
