A fine example of a strike repeat alarm carriage clock by Drocourt, dated c. 1877/78. The condition of the gorge-styled case is perfect having been newly re-gilded.
The eight day movement benefits from having its original silvered platform. It strikes on a bell, giving a crisp clear sound. The movement is signed for Drocourt and numbered 14994. Drocourt’s serial number 14560 has an engraved presentation dated 1877, so it is fair to speculate that this clock was made in 1877/78.
The enamel dials for time and alarm are both in perfect original condition, and set behind an engine-turned gilt mask.
Original matching breguet-style hands.
Height (with handle up): 7″ (17.5cms)
