~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A beautiful, classically designed antique French gilt bronze clock set by Japy Frères. It features oval panels to the sides showing Fortuna, the goddess of luck, an emperor to the front and lions masks. To the top of the clock is a cherub on a globe and flame finials surmount the candelabra.
The dial cream porcelain enamel on copper with delicate floral swags and finely cut gilt hands.
The French movement is by Japy Freres and is of high quality. It 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 sonorous coiled gong. Click the video clip below to hear the gong 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 some tiny nibbles to the winding holes and a slight mark near the 8 o'clock.
Japy Freres mark on the movement backplate
Complete with pendulum and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
