Baveux Gadroon Carriage Clock.jpg

More details to come.

A most interesting gadroon-cased carriage clock by Baveux of Saint Nicolas d'Aliermont, partner to Henri Jacot and a maker of the finest French carriage clocks.

Supplied to Charles Frodsham for retail in London, the eight-day duration striking movement is fitted with a Frodsham platform escapement, a feature seen on other carriage clocks supplied to Frodsham by Paris carriage clock makers, and is signed in script Chas. Frodsham, Paris along with the serial number 418 dating it to circa 1865. It has all the features typically seen with a Baveux/Jacot clock at this period including the double-finned dial pillars, Baveux-style engraved hand-setting arrow and under-dial steel-work. The inside of the movement plates are stamped with the Baveux movement number 381.

The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, fine blued-steel moon hands, a subsidiary alarm setting dial and is signed at VI o'clock Chas. Fodsham, Paris.

The case is a design seen as used by both Baveux and Jacot at this time and is set with finely engraved side panels and rear door, and a matching mask to the dial.
