Extremely rare and collectable and a spectacular looking clock case stamped No2586 this is repeated on the case and movement. Also please note the clock comes with original leather bose with the repeat button feature. I have a friend who has been researching the carriage clocks of Henri Jacot and the Drocourt family for some years. H.L. was Drocourt's maker in Saint Nicolas d'Aliermont until Alfred Drocourt took over their workshops and continued making the carriage clocks using the old machinery. Contrary to popular belief, H.L. stands for Holingue Freres, The number on the base is the Grohe showroom number and that which you can't see between the plates is the workshop roulant blanc number The case looks to me to a transitional case from Gorge to Corniche Circa 1840, Grohe is a respected and collectable London retailer working from 7 Wigmore Street, London The dial is white enamel with black Roman numerals and sweet black moon hands in very good condition just a faint hairline top right. The movement is 8-day French gong striking repeating movement which strikes every half an hour while counting the hour. With the repeat button at the top to repeat the last hourly strike. I have completed a full service and fully serviced the cylinder platform balance, this is an incredible movement extremely well made by the Best and most collectable French carriage clockmaker.
