Japy Freres Antique French Cartel Wall Clock

~ French - Circa 1870 ~

~~ Fully overhauled and tested ~~ 

A beautiful antique French cartel wall clock by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is well made of gilded brass in a bold Baroque style. The large enamel dial has a brass centre, original fretted blued steel hands and convex glass. It is signed for the retailer 'Bardon' of Montpellier. Above the dial is a Baroque broken arch pediment and to the sides are stylised columns. The clock is decorated with mythical creatures and stylised foliage. 

The French movement has the Japy Freres 'Grande Medaille D' Honneur' mark on the movement backplate and is of excellent quality. It is the large square plate version of the 'Pendule De Paris' movement. The movement is in excellent clean and running order having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. Duration of the movement is 8 days between winding and it sounds the hours and half-hours on a large sonorous bell. Below we have a video of the movement running and striking.

Condition of the case is excellent with clean and bright finish and there are no losses. There is some minor wear and pitting to the original gilding. The dial is also in excellent condition, there are just some tiny nibbles around the winding holes. 

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

Dimensions of clock:

inches Height 23 1/2", Width 9 3/4", Depth 5"
  centimetres Height 60 cm, Width 25 cm, Depth 12.5 cm

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 employee two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
