This gilt bronze French allegorical clock is decorated with symbols associated with Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. The two figures are votaries of the god, a female (a bacchante or maenad) on the left and a male (bacchante) on the right. The bacchante is caressing a goat, a favorite animal of the god, and the bacchante is feeding grapes to a leopard, another animal associated with Bacchus. Grapes and highly stylized grape leaves form the background and decoration of the clock.

Rare 12 tube signed JJ Elliott tall clock retailed by Bailey, Banks and Biddle, Philadelphia.
Professional caliber top to bottom restoration, inside and out, by Me.

Movement completely disassembled, re-bushed as necessary, ultrasonically cleaned, movement plates clear coated. Pivots and pivot holes polished. Meticulous details such as every screw head de-burred and polished. Leather hammer tips replaced with new goat hide leather. Hammer shock absorber string replaced. Weight shells and pendulum cleaned, polished and clear coated. 
Case back panel fabric replaced, weight cables replaced, dial restored... chapter rings resilvered.
Original finish of the case cleaned, polished and waxed. A multitude of other procedures too numerous to list here.

This clock dates to the late teens, early 20's. JJ Elliott logo on the rear movement plate is engraved, not stamped.
Pendulum, hands, saddleboard and movement are original to each other, sharing the same serial number "69"

Lower waist section retains all three original hand beveled glass panels. All glass in the bonnet is flat plate glass. I removed the sound vent panels in the sides of the bonnet and installed glass, giving view to the inner workings of the movement and hammers. I retained the original panels, and they go with the clock.

The case retains original finish, and is in excellent condition, with minimal alligatoring. There are a few dings, bumps or indentations here and there, as would be expected with use of an item that is 100 years old. Nothing unpleasant to look at. All corners are nice and sharp.
I have more photos of this clock, or I can take specific photos for you.
91.5 inches tall, 29 inches wide, 19 inches deep.
