French repeating carriage clock in a small size engraved Gorge style case. Circa 1870.

A very crisp example of a good French engraved carriage clock.

Stock No: 14240

The eight day duration two train movement with rack & flirt-release striking on a tuned bell. Also having original and fully jewelled, ratchet toothed, side lever, platform escapement.

Behind a white enamel dial with black Roman numerals, minute ring and outer, Arabic five minute markings. Also, matching steel Breguet style 'open moon' hands.

Contained in a good and beautifully hand-engraved and gilded 'Gorge' case with bevelled glass panels the top one being full-size, silked baseplate sound holes, top repeat button and pinned swinging and faceted carrying handle.

* This is a particularly attractive example in fine condition also, it is of a smaller than usual size. The movement is not signed by the maker which indicates that it was supplied to a premier retailer who would want to give the impression that it was manufactured by them in which case, the retailer's name would be written onto the dial. The lack of a retailer's name on the dial is probably due to it being washed off during cleaning.

Circa:                                     1870.

Condition:                               Excellent.
