Life with an antique picker

A wonderful French clock discovered on the road in Lommel, Belgium.

Life with an antique picker means something cool and unusual like this clock usually greets me when I arrive home from work. What a beauty he is, isn't he?  

I am trying to look up some more information about him, but at first glance it appears to be a statue of a prince sitting on top of a cracked bell...the liberty bell perhaps?  The statue is signed and the clock, french, is in working condition.

Marcellino found this fine fellow in a barn (can you believe it?!) of a clock collector just over the  dutch border in the small community of Lommel, Belgium.
