This is a good original example of carriage clock by the esteemed maker, Henri Jacot, dating from the early 1900s.
The gorge style of case retains its original gilding in good, even condition. All glasses are in excellent condition, and the movement has been overhauled and is guaranteed for 3 years.
The 8-day movement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hours on a coiled gong. The hourly strike will repeat at will, by depressing the button on top. The movement retains the original silvered platform escapement. The backplate bears Henri Jacot’s trademark of a parrot on a perch with the initials H.J. either side, and is stamped with the serial number 16628.
The perfect white enamel dial has black Roman numerals within an outer minute track, and an inner ring. Arabic 5-minute numerals are painted outside the track.
Blued steel spade hands.
