A gorge cased carriage clock with an eight-day duration movement fitted with a silvered platform lever escapement and striking the hours and half hours on a gong. The backplate is stamped with the trademark for Henri Jacot, the initials H.J. either side of a parrot on a perch; a Jacot being a South African grey parrot along with the serial number 12193, giving a date of manufacture for 1900.
The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, Arabic five-minute markings and blued steel spade hands.
This is the only Jacot clock as yet recorded with inverted triangles at the quarter-hour and then dots at the remaining five-minute intervals rather than the usual diamond & dots or later batons; interestingly this comes between the change from the former to the latter, so presumably something transitional when Jacot may’ve been working out where to go next with this decoration.
This example is also one of the last to be recorded with the Paris stamp, although the Made in Paris style had been in use for a short period beforehand.
Contained in a lacquered brass gorge case.
