Japy Freres Sevres porcelain and Gilt Metal Boudoir Clock.

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition ~~ 

A beautiful, small Japy Freres boudoir clock, gilt metal with exquisitely painted porcelain panels in the manner of Sevres. Porcelain has a pompadour blue ground decorated with floral swags and over glaze gilt decoration. It is complete with it's original velvet covered gesso base.

The The French movement is by the famous maker Japy Freres and has their 'Grande Medaille de Honour' mark on the movement backplate, dating the clock to before 1888. We have stripped, cleaned and fully overhauled the movement. Duration of the movement is 8 days between winding and it sounds the hours and half-hours on a sonorous bell. Pendulum is an old replacement. Below we have a video of the movement running and striking.

Condition of the case is very good with some wear to the gilding, we have polished the case to a bright finish. The porcelain is also in very good condition with some minor wear in places. On very close inspection there is a small area of over painting to the urn. The majority of the over glaze gilt decoration is also in good condition with just some slight rubbing in places. Gesso base is in good condition, velvet has been changed and the Gesso is very good. 

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