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