Additional Information

A fabulous French striking French Spelter figurine mantel clock on a black slate base by Louis-Frederic Japy of the famous Japy family clockmaking firm of Paris. (Louis-Frederic was one of the 5 sons of his founding father Frères Japy and he signed his clocks Japy Fils).

The case is embellished with intricately detailed hand-crafted Spelter work, featuring a lady selling flower bunches from a basket. Clean white open-faced porcelain dial with black Roman numerals and a pair of black Straight Breguet hands mounted in a cast brass bezel.

The clock has a lovely high-quality engineered 8-day French drum-head pendulum driven movement with serial number “693”, along with the 'Japy Fils 1844, 1849 and 1855 Medaille’s' trademark stamped into the circular brass backplate, helping to date the clock. The clock strikes its nickel 'ting-bell' on the hours and half hours.
