Such signatures are much in demand by collectors who are looking for pieces with working mechanisms, original gilding, good chiselling and also some prestigious provenance.

A good 19th Century clock (of the reigns of Louis-Philippe or Napoleon 3rd) can be found at US $ 900. It might be in a wood or marble case. Clocks from the 18th Century or from the 1800-1820 period are much more expensive (between US $ 3,000 and 5,000 for average quality pieces).

Prices for clocks from the beginning of the 18th Century range between US $ 4,000 and 10,000 while Louis XIV cartels are worth between US $ 7,000 and 20,000. 18th Century models decorated with elephants, exotic subjects or satyrs are found between US $ 15,000 and 50,000 while bronze Rococo Louis XV models and 18th Century skeleton clocks are somewhat rare (between US $ 20,000 and 75,000).
