This is a very unusual French gilt brass and polished wood carriage clock with push button repeat and alarm.The design is such that it will suit both modern and traditional tastes.
​ The two train eight-day gong striking movement with original silvered platform lever escapement regulated by sprung split bimetallic balance and alarm sounding on the same gong, the circular silvered Roman numeral dial with rosette engraved centre and blued steel spade hands set within engine-turned mask incorporating conforming alarm setting dial to lower margin,the bevel glazed case with wood inset substantial hinged carrying handle over gilt top plate incorporating escapement aperture and repeat button over complex wood top mouldings and alternating wood/gilt brass reeded corner uprights divided by further brass plates, the rear with door, on ogee moulded skirt base terminating with brass plate and shallow pad feet.
The unusual combination of gilt brass and polished wood for the case, coupled with the engine-turned and engraved silvered dial are features that were almost certainly employed to ensure that the current lot appealed to the English market. The fact that the backplate is also annotated with the various functions in English would confirm that the clock was made for export to the United Kingdom.
The images should show prospective buyers all they need to see but a personal inspection is very welcome.
