Antique Gothic Clock Set by Japy Freres

~ French - Circa 1880 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A stunning Gothic clock set by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is of architectural form, finely modelled and well finished in gilt bronze. To the front a blind fretted panel features a depiction of a man in medieval attire with a mythical winged lion and a flaming urn. To the sides, the panels are decorated with stylised mythical birds and flying buttresses. The clock sits on bracket feet with pieced scroll work in between. Candelabra have matching bases and four lights, decorated with stylised birds and foliage. 

The lovely rope pattern bezel is unusual in being silvered which contrasts nicely with the gilt bronze. It is fitted with convex glass. The dial is cream enamel on copper and is slightly sculptured. It is complete with it's original blued steel hands.

The French movement is of high quality and has the 'Japy Freres Grande Medaille D'Honneur' mark on the movement backplate. It is in excellent running condition having been fully overhauled and tested by our clockmaker. Pendulum is original. 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 with a clean and bright finish and there are no losses. There is some very minor wear and tarnish. The dial has some very slight nibbles around the winding holes. Candelabra arms are slightly distorted. A lovely and unusual Gothic clock set to add to your collection.


Japy Freres 'Grande Medaille D'Honneur' mark on the movement backplate.

Complete with original pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
