English travel clock (carriage clock) that is called "doucine" or "conopial" because of the shape of the case. It is a clock made in France, with a Couaillet movement, probably in the late 19th century and marketed in England by Stewart & Co., on the 65A Gracechurch St., London E.C., as stated on the dial.

The dial and bevelled crystals are in very good conditions, except for a small flaw on the rear glass, as seen in the images, which are part of the description. The case has not been cleaned or polished, keeping its patina. The number 159 is printed on the elements of the door, the base of the clock and the vertical studs of the case are in brass.

With a cover, its measures are 14 x 10 x 9 cm The case incorporates a glass and a protective lid that is hidden in the back compartment when the dial is displayed without taking the clock out of its cover. It shows marks of having suffered of bookworm.

The clock works with great precision although, given its status, it would be advisable a cleaning and checking.

Due to environmental reasons, shipping is done by reusing ideal packaging and protection materials. A tracking number is provided.
