Here is a very beautiful and unique antique clock by Japy Freres and the Derby Silver Company and dates from the late 1800's and is sure to give any room in the house that extra charm and character that only an antique clock can achieve. The movement was made by the French company Japy Freres and strikes beautifully on the hour and half hour and has just undergone a full service, runs perfectly and comes with our twelve month warranty. The unusual aspect of this movement is that it is a platform escapement which is more commonly seen on carriage clocks and therefore does not have a pendulum. The sound it makes when it chimes is so lovely and gives a wonderful throwback to yesteryear. Then the case is just so beautiful and was made by the Derby Silver Company who made a name for themselves for producing wonderful silver plated items. This case is even more special in that it has a copper finish to it which is such a rare finish to the clock case. With such a gorgeous copper-bronze colour, this is highlighted with the gilded panels, legs and cherub on top. Measuring 43cm high by 19.5cm wide and 11cm deep, this antique clock will sit so well on any mantle, desk or table and always get the attention it deserves. A truly beautiful and unique antique clock. Stock# W832 Circa: 1890 $4,150 - Interstate and domestic postage available upon request.

Here is one of the finest and most elegant antique carriage clocks around that is made even more spectacular by being not only a repeater carriage clock, but also has a triple date calendar and all this housed in such an elegant and regal case. Carriage clocks were very popular towards the end of the 19th Century thanks in part to their ability to be so portable and still remain highly accurate timekeepers. Not only does this have a repeater function which will strike the time so melodiously on the hour and half hour, but by pressing the button at the top at any time, will also sound out the time. And then the piĂ¨ce de rĂ©sistance of this already magnificent carriage clock is the ability to set and read the day, date and month which in itself is just so incredible to admire from the front. However typical of a fine carriage clock of this quality the sides have been left open and only covered by its original beveled edge glass which also continues on the top to see the escapement as it ticks by so marvelously. The case measures 11cm wide by 9.6cm deep by 15.1cm or 19.7cm with its carry handle upright and would sit so well on any mantle shelf or desk. With an eight day movement that has been fully restored and serviced and comes with our twelve month warranty, this is such an incredible and rare antique carriage clock of spectacular quality and finesse.
