2006/19: A late 19th century French CARRIAGE CLOCK with an interesting provenance. The "Corniche" case features a military inscription dated 1889 and was sold by Maple & Co., with offices in Bombay and Poona ~ to supply British Officers with essential luxuries! The eight-day movement strikes hours and half-hours on a gong, repeating hours at will, with a separate alarm train and it retains its original platform lever escapement. Good enamel dial; original blued steel Breguet “moon” hands. Guaranteed at least two years.

c.1890
