A wonderful antique French eight day striking and repeating carriage clock.
Henri Jacot, Paris
The case is polished brass with a fully glazed corniche style case with pivoted carrying handle and hour strike repeat button to the top. A white enamel dial shows a twin track minute circle and comes with blued steel hands.
The twin gong barrels movement with original silvered platform lever escapement strike the hours and half hours and repeat the hours on a rear-mounted gong.
Height: 6 in. (15 cm.) handle down
Width: 3 ¾ in. (9.5 cm.)
Depth: 3 ¼ in. (8 cm.)
The clock is in excellent condition with only minor marks and surface scratches consistent with the age of the clock. The brass is clean and bright and all glazed panels are complete with no visible damages.
The enamel dial is in perfect condition and the hands have a good blued colour.
The clock movement has been fully cleaned and overhauled. It runs and keeps time as it should. We expect a clock of this period and style to keep within +/- 6 minutes per week. One year guarantee.
