French striking Lantern Clock


A quality French brass striking clock of small proportions, dating from c.1900.

The lacquered brass case is in the style of a late 17th century traditional English lantern clock – it has a strapped bell over four finials and Doric columns with ball feet, Roman chapter ring and engraved centre. Three fretted brass crests flank the bell, the front crest is engraved, as is the brass dial background.

The French movement has a duration of 8 days as is wound from the back. It strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a coiled gong (not the bell which is for decoration only). The movement retains its original platform escapement. It is in every way identical to a carriage clock movement.

Matching blued steel lancet hands.

The thick brass chapter ring is silvered, with black-filled Roman numerals engraved and a quarter-hour track within.

The movement is to be overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
