Customer Question
I have a Japy-...

I have a Japy- Frers mantle clock made around 1880 It needs cleaning but it still runs some time.What should I expect it's worth to be.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It has both urns and key and is made with pink marble

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It has the word France below 6 on the face of the clock

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks/signatures?

There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button.

If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos.

The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

Alternately, you can upload them to the free site www.imgur.com and post the link here.

If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge:

I look forward to working with you.
