A striking carriage clock made by the renowned maker Drocourt, the gilded case in mint condition.
The clock has an 8 day movement with a silvered lever platform escapement. It strikes the hours and the passing of the half hours on a coiled blued steel gong. The backplate is stamped with Drocourt’s trademark, a cartouche containing a D and C on either side of a carriage clock. The movement is numbered 33808. The movement has been overhauled and is guaranteed for 3 years.
The serial number of this clock suggests a date of manufacture of the very early years of the 1900s.
The corniche-style of case has a large oval top window and beveled glass sides.
The enamel dial has fine moon hands.
