    hello everyone I am a new member. Currently I own many antiques from Southeast Asia. Thanks for your evaluation to help identify some antiques . Help me determine the right value of antiques.
    Thank you

    That is a really remarkable looking thing.
    Doest it really have two dials, the top one obscured by an animal, or is it two clocks?

    If it is one clock in front of another, take an uncluttered picture of it and also, and more importantly of the back and of the movement (works)

    120 cm hight (over 4 feet) is huge.
    All I can say is that it appears to be French.

    More and better information is required.
    Value would depend a lot on where you are and the local market conditions.

    Possible, the movement would reveal all.
    IN SE Asia French stuff is more common.

    Well the first one has "Made in France" on the back of the movement so that answers one question. It doesn't look very old to me but I'm no expert and the cut out for the pendulum is quite rough. Can you tell us what the other text behind the pendulum says??
    Cheers

    Not sure about the date on the back of the second one - might be a model number. It still looks too new to me but I'm no expert.
    Cheers

    Is there no light in Vietnam?

    As 'French Indochina' as was, it is reasonable to expect French clocks there and eastern customers have shown a preference for the more extreme styles. Still, the interior pictures are too dark for me to see much.

    The second one looks quite new and have my doubts about the first as well. Even if newer, the quality on the first is good. Not so much on the second one.

    It is late 19th C French, more valuable if it is gilt bronze rather than spelter. The key thing with identifying clocks is a good picture of the back of the movement, this would help for the other clocks as well.

    sorry, that doesn not answer any question. it might still be a marriage or a newly fabricated spelter housing with a French clockwork. they are readily available everywhere:

    at least I'd see the handpainted ceramic ??? plates inserted in the housing.
    same for the rest.
    same for the rest.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Yes, @Mr tran , pictures of the back of the movement would help. Also, a closer photo of the entire clock taken head on, not at an angle, might help in identifying design elements.
