Henri Jacot - A Corniche Striking Carriage Clock

A Corniche cased carriage clock, the eight-day duration movement strikes the hours & half-hours on a gong and has a platform lever escapement of the later type used by Jacot with the crescent bridge. The backplate is stamped with the HJ trademark, an African grey parrot (a Jacot) on a perch with the initials HJ either side along with the serial number 17665. The dialplate and inside of the frontplate are stamped with the Jacot oval giving the various dates for Exhibition awards; the last on this one being for 1898. The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, diamond and dot quarter hour & five- minute markings to the outer aspect, blued steel spade hands and typical Jacot inner ring. The gilded brass case is of the Corniche style and has the stepped base as seen on later models. The serial number 17665 would indicate a date of manufacture for circa 1906. Height: 5½ inches (14 cms) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below

Henri Jacot

I have been researching the clocks and lives of Henri Jacot and his family for a number of years now and have unearthed information hitherto unknown which has greatly added to our knowledge of the family as well as debunking some previously held views and confirming others that were of uncertain origin. To read a summary of my work please go to the exhibition page and view the catalogue that was published to coincide with my 2013 Jacot Exhibition of some forty-plus clocks as well as revealing some of the previously unknown history of Jacot. This research, along with that on the Drocourt family, is still on-going an I would be most grateful to hear of any clocks by both Jacot & Drocourt to add to my database.       

Price: £1,800.00
