Japy Freres Antique French Gilt Brass Clock

~ French - Circa 1890 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A very decorative, original antique French gilt brass cartel wall clock by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is classical, Louis XVI in style, restrained symmetrical shape with scroll shoulders, an urn to the top and acanthus swags. A fretted panel below the dial allows the pendulum to be seen swinging within the case. The large dial is also gilt brass with an elaborately decorated centre, and is mounted with 12 individual enamel cartouche letters. It is complete with original blued steel hands.

The French movement is by Japy Freres and has the clockmakers mark on the movement backplate. It is the more unusual Japy Freres design with pin-pallet escapement, rack strike and large detachable barrels within a split, shaped backplate. It is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully serviced by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days on one wind 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 with no chips or scratches.
