A French brass gorge cased carriage clock with push-button repeat, Blackie, London, late 19th century, the eight-day two-train gong striking movement with silvered platform lever escapement and stamped with serial number 146 to backplate, the circular dial with Roman numerals to cartouches within a white mask inscribed GEOE. BLACKIE 392, STRAND, LONDON, flanking the conforming second's dial, the brass and silvered bevel-glazed gorge case with hinged carrying handle, 15cm high excluding handle; with a leatherette outer travelling case

George William Blackie (1811-1885), London, was an escapement maker involved with both watches and chronometers, winning the Greenwich Chronometer Trials in 1858, and who devised an auxiliary compensation in the same year. Becoming Treasurer of the BHI in 1863, he also turned his hand to springing and timing and watch manufacturing, and is one of the more important characters of Victorian watch and chronometer making in London.
All of our Clocks have been cleaned, assembled, lubricated & tested and kept on test for seven days. They all carry a no quibble, one-year guarantee.
