Carriage Clocks

Drocourt, No 8019.

172mm x 95mm x 85mm

This fine carriage clock by Alfred and Pierre Drocourt is in remarkably original condition and retains its distressed outer case. The clock has a fully engraved 'one piece' case and dial mask, the engraving is fine, detailed and crisp, the work of an expert engraver. The clock strikes the hours and half hours on an early small gong and has the alarm facility. The large top glass shows the original, typical Drocourt escapement with push repeat button to the edge. The movement has been fully dismantled and overhauled and is functioning beautifully. The clock benefits from having the inner and outer stamps of Drocourt which can be seen in the more detailed pictures. No 8019. Circa 1860. A short video can be viewed HERE.
