Carriage clock and case

Pretty gilt carriage clock with bevelled glass panels and carrying case.

Item Description

There is no maker’s mark on this clock and no way of accurately dating it. It appears to be a french movement probably dating from the late 19th century. It comes complete with its original carrying case which is clearly feeling the strains of time and showing wear and tear, but which has done an excellent job in protecting the clock itself during its periods of transportation over the past 120 or so years.

Typical of carriage clocks, this is made of brass and is square framed with bevelled glass panels on all sides and a carrying handle above the visible platform escapement. There is a slight crack to the glass in one of the side panels. This is not readily visible when the clock is on display. The glass panel could be replaced, but we prefer it with its authentic original glazing.

It features an adjustment lever by which you can speed or slow the clock to ensure it keeps accurate time. It comes complete with a double ended key, to wind the clock (anti-clockwise) and to adjust the hands.

The movement is single train and the face enamelled white and featuring roman numerals.
