Japy Freres Antique French Portico Clock set - very good quality

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~

This is a Large, superb quality and stunning clock set by Japy Freres, with beautifully heavy and well defined modelling in gilt brass. Gilding is in excellent clean and bright condition. Clock case is in the form of an architectural portico, two columns support the movement and dial with the pendulum visibly swinging below the dial. The original pendulum matches the roundel used to decorate the bases of the candelabra. Candelabra have bases to match the clock and with 4 braches. 

Dial has a heavy brass backing plate mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches. The edge of the dial is engraved with the minutes and the whole is covered by bevelled convex glass mounted in a heavy hobnail cut gilt brass bezel.

The back door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen and the back of the clock and candelabra are well finished and gilded - this set would display very well in the middle of a room as well as on a mantle or side table.

Japy Freres movement is of excellent quality as usual from this famous maker. The Japy Freres  mark is on the movement backplate. It runs for 8 days, striking half-hourly on a bell.
