The super, large dial is enamel on copper with a heavy bronze centre, red half-hour makers and original blued steel hands. It is covered by convex, bevelled glass.

The French movement is by Japy Freres and has the clockmakers mark on the movement backplate. It is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is an old replacement. It runs for 8 days 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, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition just 2 hairlines, one at the 2 o'clock and one between the 8 and 9 o'clock, these hardly detract. A stunning Japy Freres cartel to add to your collection. 

Japy Freres 'Grande Medaille d'Honneur' mark on the movement backplate

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
