C1869 FRENCH ORMOLU FIGURAL BRONZE & BRONZE PATINA CLOCK WITH ANGEL

This listing is for a very interesting and beautiful French ormolu bronze and bronze patina white metal, figural clock. The clock has a Japy Frères movement it dates to the Napoleon III Period, circa 1869. It measures 16 ¼ inches or 41 cm high, and is 16 ½ inches or 42 cm at its widest, and is 6 ¾ inches or 17 cm deep.

The clock is an elaborate sculpture with open work designs at the base and two figures at the top. The figures are white metal and in their original ormolu gold finish. The bottom front of the clock has scrolling acanthus leaves forming the feet which lead to lattice form with a large swag of flowers at the front. The figures at the top of the clock are an angel and a young girl with her hands clasped together. The angel has her wings open and as she looks down at the young girl she points her finger to the sky. The figures sit on an all bronze base, this also is in it's original ormolu gold. The dial of the clock is porcelain and measures 3 ½ inches or 9 cm in diameter with Roman numerals. The back of the clock is marked “2304” on the left foot, and in the center is “PH MOUREY 69”. This is for Phillipe H. Mourey (1840-1910) who was a very noted and gifted sculptor, who was famous for designing/making clock cases in 19th century France. Japy Frères clock makers used his cases a lot so their association is well known. The numbers after his name note the year the case was made, in this case “69” for 1869.

The movement is marked “2304 PARIS B & H” in a stylized cartouche, along with “JAPY FRERES & CIE GRD MED. D’HONN EXPn 1855”. This movement won the Grand Medal of Honor at the Expo Universelle Paris in 1855. The clock movement is an 8 day time and strike affair.

The condition overall is excellent. The clock has it's original pendulum, strikes the hours and half hours correctly and keeps good time. There is some darkening to the finish.

There is . Please see the many photographs for more on the look and condition of this fine French clock.
