A Mid 19th Century Quarter Repeating Carriage Clock


A mid 19th century French quarter repeating carriage clock.

A mid 19th century French carriage clock, in a gilt brass Gorge style case with a swing handle over a rectangular bevelled glass plate over the jewelled English lever escapement, and with a 2.25” white enamel dial with Roman numerals and outer minute marker with Arabic numbers at five minute intervals, blued steel spade hands and with an eight day two train movement striking the hours and quarter hours on two coiled gongs with a repeating function, and with underneath the plinth base a selector lever giving three striking options (Hour and quarters, Quarters only, Silence). French, made for the English market, circa 1870. Supplied with a key.

Condition: Overall very good, the case retains most of its gilding with most wear on the handle, the dial is in excellent condition with no damage and the numerals are clear, the movement has been fully serviced and overhauled and is in full working order. The gongs have a pleasant rich sound and the repeating function works as it should.
