A late 17th century pendule religieuse

The rectangular brass velvet-covered dial measuring 8.75ins x 6.75ins and set with a Roman and Arabic chapter ring with matching steel hands set over the later drapery cartouche, hinged to the left hand side and opening to reveal the two week duration movement with rectangular plates united by turned baluster pillars, the single barrel with tandem drive to both trains, the going with verge escapement to a short bob pendulum suspended on silk between cycloidal cheeks, the strike train sounding via an outside countwheel on the bell mounted above the associated walnut case with hinged ebony-veneered glazed front door with moulded bezel, brass oval escutcheon to the side and two suspension hoops above 30cms (12ins) to the top of the bell.
