2129/19: A very fine and quite early French CARRIAGE CLOCK of desirable small size by Drocourt. The superb case is of 'gorge' design, engraved all over, whilst the eight day movement, which retains its original platform lever escapement, strikes hours and half-hours on a bell, repeating hours at will, with a separate working alarm train. Good enamel dials with a finely engraved mask. Perfect working order. *Although not signed, there are a number of features that point towards Drocourt as the maker. In particular, the style of the engraved word "Hands" and the twin locating holes beneath the platform escapement. 4.75ins high.

c.1865
