Bechot and Fils

Catalog Description:

C.1850, French, Bechot, Brass Cased Carriage clock, time, strike, alarm and repeat, in an early multi piece cast foliate case. The lever platform is of early configuration and with butterfly extension on the lever. The layout of both case and movement are very similar to a Campbell clock pictured in Chas Allix, page 70, however the backplate of the movement is signed Bechot and Fils, a Paris, and numbered 133. Someone added knurled set knobs to the time and alarm arbors, which can be removed (friction fit). The clock runs, strikes and repeats fine, though might benefit from cleaning. The very bottom cover and one small case screw are missing; these items could be conveniently restored. The beveled glass is good and the porcelain dial is perfect. Some gilding remains in the valleys of the foliate design. A very nice example of a mid-19th Century carriage clock. Height 6.75andquot;
