Seller: kevin-stanley (366) 100%, Location: Winchester, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 282266289583 A quality French clock dating from around 1880. (Japy Freres movement) The case is nicely proportioned. It is primarily made of black marble (Belgian slate) but it has the stylish inset panels of variegated orange marble and a shaped and sculpted top. The dimensions are 21cms high by 19 wide by 12 deep. The bezel is brass with beveled glass. It has come through its one hundred plus years of marking the time with very little damage with the corners intact, and although there are some tiny chips these do not really detract from its impressive appearance. The movement is by Japy Freres and strikes the hours and the halfs on a bell It runs for 8 days before it needs to be rewound. It has a Brocot adjustment, although the dial square drive is missing. The clock has been running well but has not been cleaned nor stripped down so no guarantees can be given, and because of its age, it would definitely benefit from a full service. It is supplied with a pendulum and key. The dial which features roman numerals appears to have been painted recently and is in reasonable condition although the chapter ring is very close to the bezel edge (see photos). All in all, a beautiful quality item which will fit into and brighten any home. The bad news is that collection has to be from Winchester Hampshire only.However, I am a retiring from clock restoring and there is lots of other horological stuff here so any collector may find a dial, a glass, spare part or movement that they need. Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding! Every effort is taken to describe the item correctly. Please browse through the detailed photos, as they form part of the description. Please contact me if you would like any specific photos of the clock, and I am happy for the clock to be viewed prior to the end of the auction. Condition: This clock is more than 130 years old. Please see pictures and description of any defects, Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French, Material: Marble/ Stone, Features: 8-Day
