Superb Antique French Candelabra
Clock Set ~ Louis Japy.

~ French - Circa 1875 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A Large and impressive antique French Gothic clock set by Louis Japy; beautifully made in gilt brass, very heavy and crisply modelled and with much of the original gilding remaining. The style is typically French gothic, architecturally designed with lions masks, hairy paw feet, flowing foliage and surmounted by a bell. The body of the clock is fretted and modelled as a niche embedded in the overgrown foliage. The pendulum can be glimpsed swinging through the fretwork.

The matching candelabra are 6 light and the bases are modelled to compliment the design of the clock.

The superb dial is gilt brass with 12 enamel cartouche letters applied for the hours.       

Antique French movement is by the famous clockmaker Louis Japy runs for 8 days and strikes half-hourly on a bell. It has been fully restored in our workshop and is on excellent clean and running condition. The pendulum is an old replacement. Click the movie below to see and hear the movement working!

Condition of the case is excellent,  gilding is bright with a clean finish, there is some very minor wear and discolouration in places. The candelabra arms are slightly distorted and one nozzle and one arm have been replaced. The dial is also in excellent condition with no chips or scratches.

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