|Description of the item|
French ebonised boulle two train portico type mantel clock, the Japy Freres movement signed Oudin, Paris, with outside countwheel and striking on a bell, the 3.5" white dial within a foliate ormolu bezel, upon four shaped supports over a bombe base, inlaid overall with foliate brass and tortoiseshell motifs, surmounted by a scrolling shaped pediment
|Information about the maker|
The movement carries stamps for Japy Freres (who probably made the 'blank' movement) and Oudin Paris (who probably finished the movement and retailed the clock). The Japy stamp includes a mark for the 1855 Exposition in France which indicates it was probably made shortly after that date.

8-day countwheel strike movement, Ebonised wooden frame inlaid with brass, mother of pearl, tortoiseshell and ivory (the latter two maybe 'faux'). Cast brass bezel and pendulum (with grid-iron hanger and adjustment). Blued steel hands.
Dimensions: 495mm tall, 275 max width, 135mm deep.
In excellent retail order. Fully prepared for sale.
