Description / Expertise

This corniche cased carriage clock, with black roman numerals, has a silvered platform with lever escapement. It has a rare feature, which we have not seen before; it is wound through the base by two substantial hinged discs, one half of which may be hinged up and used to wind the clock. One of these is engraved with the number 2286.

There are very substantial wheels on the backplate which interlink with the winding mechanism on the base which in turn wind the mainsprings.

The clock strikes and repeats on a gong.
