Superb Antique Ceramic and Gilt Brass Clock Set - Japy Freres.

~ French - Circa 1900 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A large (24 3/4" high) and very decorative Japy Freres clock set. The bodies of the clock case and the candelabra are Blue and White Transfer Ware in the style of Delft. Both the clock body and the candelabra are marked on the bases "De Winter et Fils Brussels" Each is also marked with "1905/7" which is probably the date or could be the decorators numbering. The glaze has a slight antique crazing appropriate for its age. No chips, cracks or restoration to the body of the clock case or candelabra.  The movement is marked on the back plate "Japy Freres". The finish of the gilt brass is very clean and fresh.

The Japy Freres movement is of excellent quality. It runs for 8 days, strikes on a bell every half hour and is in excellent, clean and running condition -  it is complete with pendulum and key.

Condition of the clock is excellent - the finish of the brass is very good - bright and clean with some small areas of tarnish or discolouration. There are some slight surface scratches, a small dent on the rear of the brass base of one of the candelabra and the candelabra arms are slightly distorted - nothing that detracts from the piece. The enamel dial has a light hairline through the 8 o'clock. The pendulum is an old replacement.

A large and impressive clock!  Superb for the collector of antique transferware.

Dimensions of clock: Height 23", Width 11", Depth 6 1/2".

Dimensions of candelabra: Height  24 3/4", Width 8", Depth 8".
