Superb Japy Freres Large Antique French Brass Clock Set ~ French - Circa 1870 ~ ~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~ A Stunning, superb quality, large and heavy clock set by the famous maker Japy Freres. It is very finely modelled in brass in the Louis XVI classical style. Two columns sit either side of a blind fretted panel of ornate acanthus scrolls with scroll brackets to each side. The dial is polished brass with a matted centre with raised foliate decoration. An engraved minute ring surrounds the 12 individual enamel cartouche letters. The original steel hands are beautifully fretted and blued. Above the dial is an arched top mounted with a goddess mask and surmounted by an urn with floral swags. Candelabra are conforming in style with particularly nicely arranged five branches, designed to sit on a mantle. They are complete with original acanthus snuffers. The back door of the clock is glazed to allow the movement to be seen.
