The eight day movement benefits from having its original silvered platform. It strikes on a bell, giving a crisp clear sound. The movement is signed for Drocourt and numbered 14994.
The enamel dials for time and alarm are both in perfect original condition, and set behind an engine-turned gilt mask.
Original matching breguet-style hands.
Pierre & Alfred Drocourt made superb carriage clocks that were often decorative and were awarded numerous medals at exhibitions, such as the Bronze Medal at Paris 1867, the Silver at Paris 1878 and the gold at Paris in 1889.
The son, Alfred Drocourt, succeeded his father Pierre Drocourt sometime in the 1870s.
