An early 1900s French striking repeating 8-day carriage clock, the corniche-style case newly regilded and presented as new.
The perfect white enamel dial has good clear Roman numerals with a minute track. It is signed for the original retailer, Boddington & Co., 38 King Street, Manchester. A quality refinement is the angled gilt rectangular border to the dial fills the gap where usually there is a void.
The 8-day striking and repeating movement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a gong. Depressing the button on the top of the case will repeat the last hour struck. The movement retains its original silvered platform.
Matching gilt fleur-de-lys lancet hands.
Perfect beveled glasses to all sides and top.
Height: 6¾ inches with the carrying handle up.
To be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
