Description
Couaillet watch with chime and repetition - Henry Pidduck & Son - Southport - Golden Brass and Glass - Late 19th century
Mechanical - 8 day movement - Gongs in hours and a half and repeating mechanism

Large-sized and heavy (1.4 kg) English carriage clock, with a French-made Couaillet movement, as indicated by its characteristic logo. Both the brass parts and all the bevelled glasses are in quite good condition, without serious noticeable flaws, as shown in the pictures, which are part of the description. The brass parts have not been cleaned or polished and they retain an accumulated patina. This is a clock with a masked dial, leaving only the part covered by the hands visible. The clock comes with a transport case, with a protective glass and an outer lid, with its corresponding key.

The clock and the repeat mechanism work properly. It has just been serviced and adjusted by specialists.

This a clock marketed by Henry Pidduck & Sons, a prestigious jeweller’s in Southporth that has survived until the present day.

Due to environmental reasons, the lot will be shipped reusing appropriate packaging and protection materials. A tracking number will be provided.
