The other one i have complete, it needs a jewel replaced on the pallet, brocot escapement. Its a monster, slate case weighing 50 pounds and its a Japy Freres. I want to repair it and sell it. I think i could make a nice profit on it.
I am a sucker when it comes to French clocks. Today i bought 2 of them, the one i will post a picture of i think is the nicer one. Movement is not marked and it strikes on a gong, i thought it was odd.Sold by a jeweller in Toronto. It has a slate case and looks like mother of pearl inlays i think. Its running well now. Was way out of beat when i got it. I told my wife i am not buying duplicates of, i have a few but could not pass on the price it was a very sweet deal.
