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, with push button repeat of the last hour. 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 10639. The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, Arabic five-minute markings and blued steel spade hands.
Contained in a gilded brass gorge case.
The serial number 12193 would indicate a date of manufacture for circa 1898.

I have been researching the clocks and lives of Henri Jacot and his family for a number of years now and have unearthed information hitherto unknown which has greatly added to our knowledge of the family as well as debunking some previously held views and confirming others that were of uncertain origin. To read a summary of my work please go to the exhibition page and view the catalogue that was published to coincide with my 2013 Jacot Exhibition of some forty-plus clocks as well as revealing some of the previously unknown history of Jacot. This research, along with that on the Drocourt family, is still on-going an I would be most grateful to hear of any clocks by both Jacot & Drocourt to add to my database.
