Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The backplate is stamped with the trademark of the Parisian horlogers Henri Jacot, a parrot on a perch, along with the serial number 8903 giving a date of manufacture of 1890. The inside of the plates are stamped with the Jacot oval showing the award of a bronze medal at the Paris Exposition of 1855; another at the London Exhibition of 1862; and silver medals at both the 1867 & 1878 Paris Expositions.
The white enamel dial has diamond & dot five minute markings; typical inner ring and blued steel spade hands all as seen on Jacot clocks at this period.
Henri-Louis Jacot founded his clockmaking business in Paris in 1820, aged twenty-three, having previously worked with his father Daniel. He died on the evening of the 31st of July 1868, a bachelor and without issue, at his home and workshops at Rue de Montmorency, 31 with the business being continued by his nephew Albert.
I am currently researching the Jacot family and their clockmaking business and would be delighted to hear of any examples of carriage clocks by them that I could add to the database which at present numbers over five hundred clocks.
