Seller: Top-Rated Seller priscus-collectables (2.939) 100%, Location: Banbridge, Down, Ships to: GB, IE, Item: 132534679100 BID EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT & CHECK WHEN THIS ITEM ENDS - THANKS FOR LOOKING!Japy Freres inlaid wooden mantel clock with chimesI am looking to sell a very nice antique inlaid wooden mantel clock with a Japy Freres movement inside. This is a chiming clock and comes complete with pendulum. The movement si stamped with the numbers 87486 and 48, plus the Japy Freres & Cie Medaille. d'Honneur pastille mark – these I have tried to photograph. The clock looks to be from the Victorian era and is nicely shaped and finished with inlaid wood and mother of pearl. The dial has some damage and filling as photographed, unsure who this has happened, someone may wish to replace the dial face.The movement is stamped Japy Freres et Cie who were French clockmakers, originally set up in circa 1771 in Beaucourt by Frederic Japy (1749-1812) for the purpose of making ebauches (blanks) for watch movements. However, by 1809 the business was also producing clock movement blanks. By 1810, Frederic Japy's sons Frederic-Guillaume Japy, Louis-Frederic Japy and Jean-Pierre Japy had joined the firm. Soon after the death of of their father in 1812, the sons renamed the firm Japy Freres et Cie, this being one of their clocks.The clock is being sold as a project for someone out there, unfortunately as mentioned the dial has damage and filling. Some of the veneered has cracking / losses / fillings to the fold parts as photographed. A couple of little ears of veneer damage to the edges also, please see photos. I have not tried to get it running, so it is being sold as a non runner, although the movement looks clean on it and it was ticking fast at one stage after I moved it, but then stopped, it may well start ticking after being wound up. No key present for the clock. Back door also does not close right, pops open again. I am sure to anyone who collects or repairs clocks this would be seen as an easy project to put right.It is a very nice looking clock that would make a nice restoration project for someone out there.PLEASE NOTE that I am selling it as in need a service (or repair) as I am not an expert in clocks and have not had it running.Dimensions:The clock measures 10 ¼” high and 11 ¼” wide by 5 ¼” deep.
