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.
Dimensions & Specification
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.
