D459 Bowed side French carriage clock with black dial

This substantial and very impressive strike/repeat French carriage clock has bowed sides with spiral Corinthian columns to the four corners.

Both the main and alarm dials are beautifully executed having a black enamel background with oval lightly gilded rings with a white background and delicate red Roman numerals separated by further gilt decoration.

The movement is numbered to the bottom left corner of the backplate 1659. It has a lever escapement and strikes the hours and half hours on a gong.

An interesting point to note is that the main dial has on it the retailer's name 'Marcks & Co Ltd. Bombay & Poona'.

Height with/without handle: 9"/6.5" (23/16cm)
