Favourite Item
Drocourt, Paris: a finely engraved Gorge carriage clock. The eight-day duration movement strikes and repeats the hour on a gong and has a silvered platform lever escapement stamped to the underside FR P 6401, these escapement makers’ initials having been seen on other platforms supplied to Drocourt at these period. The movement backplate is stamped with the serial number 5820 along with the wording ‘Fast/Slow’ either side of the regulator index for adjusting the rate of timekeeping, with the inside stamped with the Drocourt trademark oval, the wording Drocourt, Paris, Ftn, (Fabricant or Maker), alongside the initials and serial number H.L. 12711, for the maker of the blanc roulant, Holingue freres. The white enamel dial has black Roman hour numerals, Arabic outer five-minute numerals, dots to the outer aspect and blued steel moon hands, and has a finely engraved gilded masked surround.
