~ French - Circa 1850 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
A fine and early clock set by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is of superb quality in fine gilded bronze mounted with delicately painted Sèrves style porcelain. It features a putto painting a panel of finely painted flowers. The porcelain panels have a bleu Celeste ground. The large panel has a lovely painting of two cherubs within a gilt cartouche. The candelabra are carried by seated cherubs holding floral wreaths.
The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with blued lettered hours and original finely fretted gilt brass hands. The hobnail bezel is fitted with convex glass.
The French movement is by Japy Freres and is of high quality and is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. It is an early version of the Pendule de Paris movement with spring hammer stop and has been converted from silk suspension to spring at some time. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. We have a video clip available of the clock running, please ask for a link.
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. Porcelain is also in excellent condition with no damage. The dial is also in excellent condition just a small nibble next to the right hand winding hole. The set makes a stunning display as you can see below.
