Information about the maker
The movement is faintly marked with the Japy Freres logo and numbered 2267. The Japy family were one of the largest and longest surviving manufacturers of this type of movement. We estimate the clock was made c1900.
The case is in very good order having recently been cleaned. It is unclear how these cases were originally finished. The current finish is quite 'matt'.
The movement was overhauled recently and is fully tested and working well.
