Japy Freres Classical Antique Clock Set

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A superb original antique French clock set by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is classical in style, modelled in gilt brass and featuring a large urn to the top with acanthus handles with a laurel swag between. A stylised pineapple final sits on top. To the sides are embossed panels of urns surrounded by stylised foliage. The front is polished and mounted with 1/4 spandrels and the clock sits upon hairy paw feet. Candelabra are conforming in style with 3 lights with two arms of acanthus and snuffers that sit in the central nozzle as finials when not in use.

The dial is also gilt brass with 12 individual enamel cartouches. It is unusual in having a large cream enamel cartouche to the centre. It is complete with original blued steel hands and convex glass fitted to the egg and dart moulded bezel. The rear door is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.

The French movement is by Japy Freres of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. Pendulum is a replacement.It runs for 8 days 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, beautifully clean and bright with hardly any wear or discolouration and just the occasional mark or light scratch to the polished surfaces. The dial is also in very good condition, there is a slight chip to the central cartouche near the left hand winding hole and a hairline to the number 11 cartouche. Candelabra are slightly distorted. The set makes a stunning display as you can see below.

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.
