Seller: jgc010 (279) 100%, Location: Esher, Ships to: GB, Item: 293368258183 High quality timepiece carriage clock by Henri Jacot, one of the very best French clockmakers. A typical Jacot quality clock with his maker’s stamp on the back plate, numbered 15417. It is in very good condition, recently cleaned and serviced, and telling excellent time. And comes with the original matching number winding key. It has an 8 day timepiece movement in a Corniche style case, with Geneva stop work on the spring barrel (used in high quality clocks to regulate spring power to achieve more consistent timekeeping). The high quality silvered platform escapement, blued hands, screws, pawl and pawl spring, and simple elegant dial are all typical of Jacot’s products. Hidden behind the spring barrel (revealed during servicing) is Jacot’s stamp recording the Gold Medal awarded to him in the Paris Exhibition of 1889 for the exceptional quality of his work. Charles Allix, the undisputed authority on carriage clocks, described Jacot as “probably the best of the four leading Paris producers of carriage clocks towards the end of the 19th century” [page 113 of his book ‘Carriage Clocks’]. The date of the clock can be estimated by comparison with other known examples. Jacot clock number 15677 has a presentation inscription dated to 1903, and number 16066 has a presentation inscription dated to 1904. So this clock number 15417, being slightly earlier than either of those, almost certainly dates from 1902 or 1903. Please view the photographs to determine the condition. There are various minor marks consistent with being 117 years old, but both the case and the face have survived very well and this would make a fine gift or addition to your collection. The asking price of £599 is very realistic for a simple and elegant Jacot timepiece clock in this condition, with its original platform escapement and its original key, by this renowned maker – I also own a very similar Jacot timepiece with an insurance valuation of £800. However I am open to serious offers. Payment is by PayPal only. I will ship by Royal Mail Special Delivery, the package will be fully insured and will require a signature on delivery.
