Striking Carriage Clock
1717/18: DROCOURT: a fine quality late 19th century French CARRIAGE CLOCK by this famous maker. The excellent quality case is of "Corniche" design, with bevelled glass panels all around; substantial handle and "stepped" plinth base. The eight-day movement strikes hours and half-hours on a gong, and retains its original platform lever escapement. Perfect working order and guaranteed for over two years. * Numbered 14580, this is reasonably early for Drocourt clocks; his clock numbers went up to over 36,000 by the time production ceased in 1920.
