Product Description

Stunning three piece set made by Japy Freres around 1855.

Frederic Japy (1749-1812) was a pioneer in the industrialization of not only clocks, but of manufacturing in general.

He was apprenticed by Jacques George Frederic Japy, his grandfather in the profession of watchmaker in Montbeliard.

The Sevres Company was founded in 1738. In 1740, the Vincennes Manufactory was created with the support of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour.
