Superb Antique French Clock Set - Japy Freres

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~

A very elegant brass clock set of good size by Japy Freres. The case is architectural with a basket shaped top and a cushion shaped base. The three sides of the clock are finely fretted with a Chinoiserie influence with entwined geometric foliage and dragons and surmounted by a stylised flower finial. To the corners are mythical winged creatures. The dial is heavily cast and silvered and mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouches. It is covered with a heavy hobnailed bezel mounted with bevelled and convex glass. The overall look is stylish and restrained and this is enhanced by the crisp modelling and beautiful finishing of the set.

The Japy Freres movement is of the highest quality and has the Japy Freres trade mark on the back plate. Our clockmaker has cleaned and serviced the movement - it is in excellent clean and running condition. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. The pendulum is an old replacement. Click the movie below to hear the bell and watch the clock running!

  Condition is excellent. There are no losses to the case and the finish is excellent, clean and bright. There are some minor marks to the polished surfaces. The candelabra arms are slightly distorted and there are some very minor stress cracks in a couple of places. The dial is also in excellent condition with just a very small nibble on the 6 o'clock cartouche and the silvering is slightly tarnished / worn.  

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

An elegant clock set to add to your collection!
