It dates from the late 1890’s to the very early 1900’s. It is French and carries the distinctive arrow trademark of Couaillet - different to the arrows seen on other carriage clocks. It comes with its double ended brass carriage clock key. The clock retains its original cylinder escapement which is in very good condition. All glasses are bevelled, including the top rectangular one, and are excellent with no visible chips. The brass case is in good condition with no damage, just a few very tiny age related marks and a small mark/dent on the top at the back under the handle, where it has probably been in contact with the case. The handle folds nicely, the back door closes tightly, and the case has its original baseplate. The clock is wound and set by the key through the glazed back door, and runs for its full length of wind which is around 8 to 9 days. The white enamel dial is in excellent condition with no hairlines. There is a very small chip on the top left-hand corner. However, this is virtually obscured by the top of the case. The hands are blued steel and are in good condition. OVERHAUL AND SERVICE The clock has had a full overhaul and servicing which involved the following: · Fully dismantled, including the platform escapement, having both a manual and ultrasonic clean before being checked and having all necessary work done on it, and then re-assembled and oiled. · The mainspring was removed from its barrel, cleaned and inspected, then properly lubricated before being fitted back. · The case is fully numbered inside and is all original. It was fully dismantled, then polished by hand to preserve the detail. It was then coated in a high quality wax especially made for the brass cases and plates of clocks, which acts as a tarnish inhibitor. The clock is in excellent mechanical condition, running very well, and keeping good time. DIMENSIONS · The clock stands just under 11.1/2cm tall to the top of the case, and is approximately 14.1/2cm tall to the top of the handle when it is up. · The base width is 8cm. PACKAGING the clock will be double boxed in new boxes to ensure that it reaches you in perfect condition.
