Striking Carriage alarm Clock with Centre Seconds


Contact Dealer To Purchase

Object Description

A nice example of a French 1890s carriage clock in a polished and lacquered brass case of gorge styling with canted corners. It has the added glory of the moving sweep of the seconds hand, a rare addition on carriage clocks.

The eight day movement with original silvered lever platform escapement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a bell, and repeats the last hour at the press of the button. It is signed for the maker with a B in a circle.

The perfect white enamel dial has Roman numerals above an Arabic alarm dial. It is signed Howell James & Co., TO THE QUEEN.

The height is 7″ with the handle up.

Object History
