A French carriage clock for the Chinese market
c. 1880 Switzerland
Offered by Leigh Extence
The eight-day duration movement has a platform lever escapement and strikes the hours and half hours on a gong with unusually all the strikework set on the backplate as opposed to under the dial as normal. The backplate is engraved with a repeat of the Chinese name, whilst the inside of the movement is stamped with the trademark of the roulant blanc maker ‘Ch. Joseph’. The base of the case houses the alarm bell as well as having an embossed wax seal.
Charles Joseph had workshops in Rue du Cimetière, Saint Nicolas d’Aliermont with an address in Rue de Montmorency, Paris, the same road in which Jacot was recorded as working and living.
Complete with the original travelling box.
