Bourdin ,Duplex with rare strike

 

It's not often we are surprised by a clock but this Bourdin Carriage clock has done just that. The reason for this is the strike. The strike for the hour is on Bell and the strike for the half hour on a Gong, ingenious ! thus solving the problem of the 12.30 , 1 & 1.30 strike if you are not looking at the clock just listening. To achieve this the clockmaker (Boudin - Clockmaker to the King of France ) has had to cleverly invent a 'pump' hammer to switch between them. As if that wasn't enough the clock has the original Duplex escapement which is exceptional. Bourdin was a small producer of fine and now rare carriage clocks from the Rue de la Paix and won many medals and honours. Circa 1850. We have uploaded a small clip on youtube HERE.

Leroi a Paris , Calderwood .

This early carriage clock is possibly the earliest we have handled . We have  established that Leroi a Paris became the Royal clockmakers in 1825 and this must pre-date as it would have been stamped Leroi a Paris Horologer du Roi after that date .There are also other features that would make this exceptionally early for a carriage clock , the case is constructed in a very unusual way , a' multi-piece' case with shuttered rear door and being quite large overall . The case retains the original Gilt finish which we have cleaned but not regilded or refreshed . The original and unusual jewelled lever , platform escapement is superb and has a good strong action . The clock is 'countwheel' striking on a bell and can be left silent (if you do not wind the strike side) . The original silvered dial is signed Calderwood and Son , London , who would have retailed the clock . The thick bevelled glass has a few little edge chips but it would be a shame to change  as it is original . To sum up , this is a very rare and early carriage clock that would appeal to the collector or investor .

This Carriage clock was retailed by J.W.Benson of 25 Old Bond Street , London Circa 1895 , and has the Drocourt logo stamped in an oval to the rear plate .J.W.Benson had numerous clocks made for them by Alfred and Pierre Drocourt . This clock also retains the name to the dial which is often worn away . When we purchased this clock we noticed that the white metal had been polished off , and after taking to an expert Gilder we established it was most probably Nickel plated . Nickel and Rhodium have very similar white colour , so it was decided to opt for the Rhodium-a noble metal which has greater value at around $80,000 a kilogram ! and is also one of the most precious metals . It retains the original carry case and looks spectacular . Click to see the close up macro-images
