The large dial is enamel on copper with blue lettering, It has an outside minute ring and original fretted gilt brass hands. The bezel is fitted with convex glass.
The French movement is by Japy Frères and has the makers mark on the backplate. It is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is most likely original although the serial number is slightly different to that of the movement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell.

Condition of the case is excellent, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration. The dial is also in excellent condition just a slight chip above the 12 o'clock that cant be seen with the bezel closed. The dial also has a few marks. The original glass has some light scratches.
Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
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.
