DESCRIPTION: Clocks- 2 (Two) French Brass and Glass: (1) Japy Freres & Cie., Paris, crystal regulator, 8 day, time and gong strike, spring-driven pendule de Paris movement with double-vial pendulum in a glazed case with beveled glasses, gilt brass corners, top and bottom, 3.5 inch cream porcelain dial with Arabic numerals and blued steel hands. (2) France, carriage clock, 8 day, time only, spring-driven movement in a glazed case with beveled glasses on five sides, polished brass case with handle on top, white enamel dial with Arabic numerals, and blued steel spade hands.
CONDITION: (1) The lacquer protecting the metal case parts has turned brown. Beveled glasses are good. The porcelain dial is in excellent condition, though missing one brass grommet around a winding arbor hole. The movement ticks and strikes. (2) Brass case has a somewhat dark patina with a few very dark spots. There is a small chip in the lower right corner of the front glass. The dial and hands are in very good condition. The movement was recently serviced and ticks briskly. The platform looks like a newer replacement.
