A small 19th Century striking carriage clock in a Gorge case retaining its original gilding, the high quality movement sharing some significant traits with clocks manufactured by Henri Jacot.
The two train movement striking on a blued steel gong, is regulated by an English lever platform escapement, the crisp white roman dial is unblemished with Roman hours and arambic minutes, the case having thick bevelled glass throughout. The case is numbered 7396 throughout but is not signed. Interestingly the gong block is stamped FD in a oval, this mark has been found on many clocks made by Henri Jacot and his competitor Drocourt. The quality of the movement and the appearance of the engraving of the back plate lead us to believe that this clock was made either by one of these makers or by one of the highly skilled suppliers.
