A stylish antique French eight day striking carriage clock from L’Epee, Sainte Suxanne, France
Circa 20th Century
With fully glazed and polished brass corniche-style case, this clock has a pivoted carry handle to the top. The clock has a white Roman dial with outer Arabic minute track, blued steel Breguet hands and is signed by the maker.
Twin gong barrels movement with gilt brass platform lever escapement and strike the hours and half hours on a rear mounted gong.
Height: 5 ¾ in. (14.5 cm., handle down
Width: 3 ½ in. (9 cm.)
Depth: 3 in. (8 cm.)
The clock is in excellent general condition. There are minor marks and light surface scratches but no major faults or marks. There is some light and minor tarnishing to the brass, but nothing too significant. The glazed panels are all complete with no chips or damages except for a very small chip to the lower edge of the left side panel however, this is very slight and does not distract from the overall appearance of the clock.
The dial is bright and clean and in perfect condition with no visible faults.
The clock movement has been fully cleaned and overhauled. It is working well, running and keeping time as it should. There is a pleasing tone to the hour and half hour gong strike. We expect a clock of this design to keep with +/- 6 minutes per week.
