This magnificent clock dates from around 1890 and has been fully restored.

Made in France the clock movement was manufactured by Japy Fils and has just been professionally restored, it runs for around a week on a wind and has a pendulum escapement.

The dial of the clock is similar to many French Vineyard clocks, having a glass surface which gives it a wonderful crispness. It feature traditional Roman numbers and elegant black hands. The face has real character and has the colour and markings appropriate to the age of the clock.

The case is Oak, borer free and has a beautiful grain. It measure 38cc in diameter and is 12cm deep, with the dial measuring 26cm across. There is a polished brass bessel that surrounds the dial the gives the clock a wonderful golden finish.

In the style of these type of clocks, the whole front is hinged at the top to allow access to the face and movement. The body of the case is hexagonal and has a trap door at the bottom.

The dial features the name “E Brun and Co.” below which is the word “London”. E Brun and Co. opened in Vienna in 1893, selling ready-to-wear clothing and fine linens and are still in business today. This clock obviously hung in their London premises around the turn of the Century.

This truly beautiful clock will add warmth to any home, it has a lovely soft tick and a timeless elegance. Buy the clock with complete confidence knowing that it has been professionally overhauled so will give many years of trouble free time keeping.

This is a very rare clock in New Zealand, the only example of its type I have seen in over 20 years of collecting. Don’t miss your chance to own this beautiful time piece.
