Description

~ French - Circa 1850 ~
~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~
An early and stunning original antique French clock by Japy Frères. It features a charming figure of a girl with her favorite dog atop a naturally modelled rocky outcrop that house the clock. It is beautifully modelled in ormolu (mercury fire gilded or bronze doré).
The dial is porcelain enamel on copper with delicately made gilt brass hands. Please note this style of clock does not have a glass bezel or rear door.
The early French movement is of high quality and is by Japy Frères. It is in excellent clean and running condition having been fully overhauled by our clockmaker. It an early French movement with silk suspension and a rating knob on the backplate. Pendulum is a replacement. It runs for 8 days and strikes the hours and halves on a bell. Click the video below to hear the bell and watch the clock running.!
Condition of the case is very good, the original gilding is beautifully clean and bright with some wear, mostly to the sides and rear of the case as these areas were not as heavily gilded as the front originally. There are some marks and minor denting to the sides. The dial has a hairline at the eight o'clock and evidence of restoration around the winding holes but it looks good.
Japy Frères clockmaker's mark on the movement backplate.
Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
