France Shelf Carriage

Catalog Description:

C.1890, French, Large Brass Cased Carriage Clock, grand sonnerie, in the Angle Riche style, in as-found condition. Although this clock needs some work, it has a lot of potential. Foremost, it has a 3-note report for the quarters, not 2 as is normal, and it strikes the hours on yet a 4th deeper tone gong (4 hammers as well). The selector slot in the base reads: Quarters Only, Silent, Chimes ; note the tip of the selector lever is broken off and will need about a half inch extension. Although we are unable to verify the operation, the word "Chime" is used in lieu of "full quarter strike", as there is no pindrum present to play a chime. The well made movement retains its' original lever platform intact; movement numbered 780. The silvered dial has raised bronze Roman numerals. Repeat mechanism at top is all there but is jammed and not functioning. Beveled glass good. Although this needs a good mechanic, it has lots of potential. Height 83/4"
