GIANT carriage clock
1891/18: JOSEPH SOLDANO: a very fine quality mid/late 19th century French GIANT CARRIAGE CLOCK in perfect working order. The very heavy and substantial case is of "Cannallee" type, with traditional bevelled glass panels to all sides, whilst the 8-day movement with its huge original silvered platform lever escapment, strikes hours and half-hours on a gong, repeating hours at will. Retailed by Payne & Co of New Bond St., London, and signed to the dial and engraved as such to the backplate. The platform signed "SOLDANO". * Genuine "Giant" carriage clocks are rare with movements; wheels and cases all much larger than usual.
