Carriage Clocks

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 .
