Description / Expertise

A rare and highly individual French carriage clock which strikes and repeats the hours and half hours on a gong and has a lever escapement. Circa 1880.

The top and base of the gilded case, including the centre of the handle, are decorated with coloured enamels set in a white background. The dial, which has black Roman numerals, is shaped and raised on a gilded background and this also is decorated with coloured enamels on a white ground.

There are columns to the front and rear of the case, the bases of which form the feet of the clock; these in turn form part of the solid base.

Engraved on the corner of the base is what appears to be a registration mark.

Height: with/without handle: 7.8"/6" (20/15cm)
