The movement is by the famous French maker Japy Freres and has their mark on the movement backplate. It is in excellent clean and working condition having been fully stripped, cleaned and tested by our clockmaker. The pendulum is an old replacement. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes the hours and half-hours on a bell. You can see the movement running and striking in the video clip below.

Condition of the case is excellent with a bright and clean finish, there is some very minor wear to the original gilding and some minor discolouration in places. The back box is a little distorted but the rear cover fits nicely. The dial is in very good condition with just some tiny nibbles around the winding holes. A stunning Rococo clock, ready to grace your wall.

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
