Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals and blued steel moon hands; with the rear marked with the monogramme for the peintre de cadrans, the dial maker & painter, Adolphe Mojon who also made the dials for both Drocourt and Jacot, amongst other fine Parisian carriage clock makers.
The gorge case is finely engraved in typical H.L./Drocourt decoration with a matching engraved mask to the dial.
Further details of the Holingue family and their relationship with Drocourt can be found within the 2014 Drocourt Exhibition catalogue on my website.
I have been researching the clocks and lives of the Drocourt family for some years; a summary of the work is available to view on my website following the link to the 2014 Exhibition Catalogue. I would be interested to hear about any Drocourt clocks, and those signed for Jacot, to add to my database.
