A Rare Enamelled Carriage Clock

A rare and highly individual French carriage clock; the eight-day duration movement has a platform lever escapement and strikes the hours and half-hours on a gong, with a repeat button set to the top to sound the last hour at will. The top and base of the gilded case, including the centre of the handle, are unusually decorated with coloured enamels set on a white background. The dial, which has black Roman numerals and blued steel spade hands, is shaped and raised on a gilded background and is also decorated with coloured enamels on a white ground. There are columns to the front and rear of the case, the bases of which form the feet of the clock, which in turn form part of the solid base. Interestingly, engraved on the corner of the base is what appears to be a registration mark, worded ‘Registered Pattern’. Height: 7¾ inches (handle up): 6 inches (handle down) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below
