Description / Expertise

Demeur à Bruxelles: a finely engraved Corniche carriage clock. The eight-day duration movement strikes and repeats the hour on a bell, with a further alarm sounding on the bell and has a silvered platform lever escapement with a club-tooth balance. The backplate of the movement is unsigned although the frontplate is stamped with the initials H.L. for the maker of the blanc roulant, and quite probably the complete clock, Holingue freres, along with their serial number 10962 to the inside of the plate, and the clock serial number 1188. The white enamel dial has blue Roman hour numerals, blued steel moon hands, and is signed A. Demeur à Bruxelles, Her du Roi, (Clockmaker to the King), and has a finely engraved gilded masked surround.
