An excellent example of an original gilded grande sonnerie carriage clock by Henri Jacot, numbered 11050, dated c.1895.

The gilded gorge case with pinched corners has a large top glass to view the original bi-metallic jewelled lever escapement of exceptional quality with Breguet overcoil, and with a steel bridge to protect the index.

The eight day movement is gong striking on the hour, with a repeat function. The base has a selection lever for Silent / Full Striking (grande sonnerie) / Quarters (petite sonnerie).
With the Grande Sonnerie option you have the quarter, half and three-quarter hour ting-tang striking on two gongs following the hour strike.
The petite sonnerie option gives a ting-tang strike on the quarters, with the hour (on one gong) only at the full hour.

The backplate bears Henri Jacot's trademark of a parrot on a perch with the initials H.J. either side, and is stamped with the serial number 11050. The base of the case carries the same serial number.

The perfect white enamel dial has Roman hour numerals within the minute track, and Arabic minutes without.

Bevelled glasses to all sides and top, with no chips.
Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
