Lot Number 451

A late 19th century Gorge-cased carriage clock with grande sonnerie striking on two bells and alarm feature, white enamel dial with matched blued steel French moon hands, original platform lever escapement with silvered finish, good cast brass case with glazed, bevelled panels including a full size glazed panel to show the escapement, with 2 keys. 18cm tall, back panel plate inscribed 414 lower left, Est 800 to 1200 Condition report: clock is ticking however a service is needed as the movement is generally dirty. Strike does not sound correctly as one hammer appears out of position on its arbor; possible the large bell is a replacement and so obstructs the rear hammer. Dial is good though has a faint hairline from 11 o'clock to 3 o'clock and another on the alarm dial. All glasses appear in good condition.
