Superb striking carriage clock

17.5cm diameter

A superb nineteenth century eight-day carriage clock of typical size, c. 1870. The gilt-brass gorge case has glass panels to all sides and there is a viewing window at the top showing the escapement. It has its original gilding and is surmounted by a shaped carrying handle and a repeat button.

The spring-driven movement consists of going and striking trains, as well as an alarm. The going train has its original lever escapement on a silvered platform. The striking has three different positions, which are set by a lever in the bottom plate: grande sonnerie, petite sonnerie and silence. The grande sonnerie system strikes the hours and the quarter hours on all quarters on two gongs of different pitch, whereas with petite sonnerie it only strikes the hour on the hour and the quarter hours on the quarters. The repeat will always strike the hour and the last quarter hours struck.

The rectangular enamel dial is marked


It has a Roman chapter ring with five-minute and minute divisions. The time is indicated by a delicate pair of blued-steel Breguet hands. The lower Roman dial has a small blued-steel hand indicating the alarm time.

The clock has just been fully restored and comes with a two year guarantee.

Height: 17.5cm with handle up (14 handle down)
