This early French bracket clock is thought to date back to 1820 and is highly unusual, having the movement attached to the case. Made by Vincenti, Paris, it features an 8 day movement with silk suspension, striking on the hour and half hours on a bell. The dial is enamelled and the case is made from rosewood and features the most delightful light wood inlay of birds and floral detail. Measures 63cm(h) x 32cm(w) x 11.5cm(d). Jean Vincenti started his clockmaking workshops before 1823 in Montbeliard, France but went bankrupt a year later, whereupon the clock manufacturer Roux took on the management on his behalf, making the roulant blancs (rough movements) for clockmakers to finish and use.
Vincenti died in 1834 with the clockmaking business that he started continuing to win numerous awards including the Medaille d’Argent (silver medal) in 1855.
