A Table Clock in the Louis XVI Manner By Japy Frères

The finely chased ormolu case is dressed with 'Sèvres' style hand decorated polychrome panels to the face and sides, depicting fisherfolk; the case rises from toupie feet, with fluted pilasters framing the face, with 'jewelled' borders, and gilt hands indicating the hours, delineated in Roman numerals; the two train movement has a Brocot escapement, enabling the eight day movement, and the hours are struck on a bell; the backplate is marked with the maker's sigil, and numbered; atop a Triton holding a bident rides a stylised dolphin.
French, Circa 1890
Excellent, in working condition
Frederic Japy (1749-1812) was apprenticed in Montbeliard to his clockmaker uncle, and returned to his home town of Beaucort, setting up as a clockmaker, and an organiser of local clockmakers into a company - the company expanded and were medal winners at many of the International Exhibitions throughout the 19th century under the aegis of his sons, eventually closing after the First World War.
