Japy Freres Gothic Brass Table Clock.

~ French - Circa 1870 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully working, ready to display ~~ 

A superb Brass cased table clock by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is architecturally styled in a light Gothic taste, profusely fretted to the front an sides which allows the pendulum to be seen swinging within the case. The back door is glazed with bevelled glass to allow the movement to be seen. The dial is heavily molded in brass and mounted with 12 individual shield cartouches for the letters. The dial surround has an unusual rope design and the original hands are fretted blued steel. Below the dial is a goddess mask.

The movement has the Japy Freres 'Grande Medaille d'Honneur' mark on the movement backplate and is of the clock makers usual high quality. Our clockmaker has completely disassembled the movement, cleaned and inspected it, replaced the springs and the pendulum and thoroughly tested it to ensure years of trouble free running. It runs for 8 days on one wind and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video clip below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright finish and there are no losses. There is some very minor wear / discolouration on the high spots. The dial has some chipping to the number 4 and 8 cartouches around the winding holes and a light crack on the tip of the number 1.

Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
