Very Good Quality 19th Century Brass Mantle Clock By Japy Freres.

Fully serviced.

Frédéric Japy (1749-1812) was a pioneer in the industrialization of not only clocks, but of manufacturing in general.  An imaginative inventor of all sorts of machines, he began his career as a watchmaker, apprenticed by Jacques Georges Frédéric Japy, his grandfather, in the profession of watchmaker in Montbeliard.  At age 17, he returned to Beaucourt to spend two years working in the workshop of his father.

During this period, watch and clock parts were manufactured usually by hand by specialized workers in their homes in small communities. Japy radically changed the way high quality and stunning clocks and watches were produced.  The sequential production of parts in a manufacturing plant, aided by machines streamlined the creation and production of clock parts.  A pioneer in the art of manufacturing and industrialization is Frederic Japy's legacy.  In 1806, three of his sons Pierre, Fritz and Louis founded the trademark 'Japy Freres'.
