Seller: clockbroker (117) 100%, Location: Mansfield, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122222254822 Condition: Excellent condition with fully serviced movement, Details: FINE REPEATING CARRIAGE CLOCK JAPY FRERES CARYATIDS This is a very nice Victorian carriage clock of French manufacture dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth century with a highly decorative Rococo style case . The well cast gilded brass case is decorated with leafy vines and is surmounted by a carrying handle in the form of intertwined mermaids.I particularly like four figures individually cast and screwed to each of the canted corners. The substantial 8 day duration bell striking movement with replaced lever platform strikes the hours and has the facility of a push button repeat.The white porcelain dial is signed Henry & Co Paris who finished the Japy Freres supplied movement. The size is also ideal for modern tastes being 8 inches tall to the very top of the case (handle up ),5 inches wide and 4 inches deep making it suitable to be placed anywhere. The overall condition is excellent with a sympathetically cleaned case and movement which is in perfect working order. The dial has a chip on the top left corner which cannot be seen in normal viewing but can be seen if the clock is tilted at an acute angle. As you can see from my pictures it simply cannot be seen. In a similar vein there are a couple of tiny chips to the bottom corners of a side clock but they are barely visible. I have to be the buyers eyes so my descriptions have to be detailed but I am sure that the condition will delight the most discerning customer.
