Seller: clockbroker (125) 100%, Location: Mansfield, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 123342383222 AUTOMATON PETITE SONNIERRE REPEATING CARRIAGE CLOCK Click images to enlarge Description . This is probably one of the most rare carriage clocks to appear on the market for a number of years in that it has two small automation Jacks on the dial that appear to strike a bell with moving arms to correspond with the actual quarter striking on the clocks mechanism. I do not recall ever seeing such a clock for sale. It is of French manufacture dating from the last quarter of the 19 Century and is unsigned although the movement is of the finest quality and numbered. The clock has a running duration of 8 days and retains its original platform escapement which is running perfectly. It has Petite Sonnierre striking on two coiled gongs with a strike silent lever under the base . This type of striking is also referred to as Ting Tang in that at quarter past the hours one strike on each of the two hammers are struck. At half past there are two strikes , at quarter to three strikes and the hours are struck on a single gong . All these strike are replicated by the Jacks either side of the alarm dial. The effect is very interesting to watch and can be operated at any time by pressing the repeat button on top of the case.. The images should show prospective buyers all they need to see but a personal inspection is very welcome. I also have a short video clip The Anglaise Riche case has full reeded Corinthian capped pillars to all corners and the vast majority of the original gilding is intact and in superb order save a little rubbing on the top of the case This is is 7 1/4 inches high with the handle raised. It is 3 3/4 wide. The depth is 3 1/4 inches. The overall condition is excellent with the movement professionally serviced .It will delight the most discerning client.
