Item:174077509377You are bidding on the following item:- ANTIQUE FRENCH BLACK SLATE ARCHITECTURAL TEMPLE MANTLE CLOCK Dated Circa 1878 Made by the famous French Clockmakers L.P. Japy Freres. The clock was originally purchased during a visit to Paris France by my Great Grandparents. This clock has been in the old snug of my late Grandparents home for the past 50 years, I remember it as a young child. There is some wear on the outside, Please see pictures for condition. For the age of the clock it's unrestored and original. It is still working but just needs a little TLC with a special slate polish to bring out the lustre. This clock would fit into anyone's home or clock collection. CLOCK FEATURES: It still retains the original features like a detailed ornate floral frieze strip and a pair of Corinthian ‘Roman Doric’ columns. Front bevelled glass door and rear access door are still intact. The 4 3/4" brass bezel surround the clock face, which also keeps the original glass in position this has no cracks. It has a 3/4" black chapter ring with gilt roman numerals with a brass centre and the hands are in a typical French style in keeping with the era. 8 DAY CLOCK MOVEMENT The brass two train clock movement shows signs of oil. It also has a “Brocot” type suspension block and regulating arbor. This enables the clock to be adjusted from the front without the need to open the back and remove the pendulum. When asked to strike the spindles all move freely. Just needs a clean. This two train movement strikes the coil gong on the hour and for each hour of time. The coil gong and hammer are in great shape giving a lovely tone. The overall condition of this clock is great all original dust and all. There is some wear but for a clock which is over 140 Years old, it would fit into any home or clock collection. Also come with the original weighted pendulum. Matching numbers on both movement and pendulum Please note a key is also provided.
