Large and Impressive Bronze Candelabra Clock Set - Japy Freres

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A superb clock set of the highest quality by the famous maker Japy Freres - this is a large, heavy and majestic clock set. The case is finely cast in bronze/brass and has gained a beautiful patina with age. The clock is surmounted by a classical urn which has a flaming torch finial - the candelabra snuffers are matching. The dial has been made in the style of 18th century examples, being solid and mounted with individual enamelled copper cartouches for each hour. The Japy Freres mark - pictured below - is on the back plate of the movement.

Condition of the clock and candelabra is excellent, there are no losses and the enamel cartouches of the dial have no cracks or chips. The blued steel hands are original. The patina is a lovely rich brown, the clock is slightly lighter than the candelabra as you can see in the pictures below.
