Seller: rubyfoxflowers (1.907) 100%, Location: Attleborough, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 352945079348 A very attractive Victorian carriage type clock needing a little restoration.Manufactured in France by Japy Freres around 1880.Case is in good condition made of ebonised wood with lovely ormolu brass decoration.All the decoration is complete including nice handle and plate.Brass bezel with bevel edge glass.Nice rear brass door.Movement is a 8 day tic-tac type with hours and half hour strike on a gong.Movement is complete and works.Faults are the pendulum has snapped but complete so not a big job.I believe the hands shaft has lost a tiny piece off the end where the pin would go through to holds hands.Hands are on and instead of pin a brass collar has been pushed on to hold them so that could be left.Springs are ok movement would benefit from a service.Other faults are ceramic dial has hairlines and small chip.The ebony finish looks good but i would say it has been redone.A genuine original clock a worthwile restoration project.Measures 6.5 inches wide 11 inches high to top of handle 5 inches deep.
