Project Description

31794 DUMAS (A.D) NO. 1379.

AN IMPRESSIVE FRENCH CARRIAGE CLOCK IN AN ENGLISH STYLE CASE VERY SIMILAR TO THOSE USED BY DENT & McCABE.  CIRCA 1870.

For an overview, please click on one of the images above and scroll through the gallery. For images that you can enlarge to examine in greater detail, please scroll down to the end of this page.

This fine carriage clock has a delicately written circular dial with Roman hour and small Arabic minute numerals beneath which is the alarm dial.   Both are surrounded by a well executed engine turned silvered dial.

The movement is signed as above on the backplate.  It strikes and repeats on a gong and has a fine quality lever escapement with split bimetallic balance, poising screws, double coquette and silvered platform.

The case is very similar to that of two carriage clocks by Dent & White seen on pages 319 – 321 and one by McCabe on page 294 of ‘Carriage & Other Travelling Clocks’ by Derek Roberts.

Height with/without handle:   7″ / 5.5″   (18 / 14 cm).
