Drocourt - A Corniche Timepiece Carriage Clock

A Corniche-cased French carriage clock attributed to the well known maker Drocourt. The eight-day duration timepiece movement has the original silvered platform lever escapement engraved with typical ‘fast/slow’ indication in Drocourt style script and is stamped on the backplate with the serial number 15419, with all the markings in the Drocourt style including the arrow for hand setting. The movement has a further serial number stamped between the plates, 1448, being that of the blanc roulant and conforms to the sequence as used by Drocourt. The brass Corniche case is of better than average quality and is also stamped with the serial number to it's base and has the double screws to the pillars holding the movement into the case, as opposed to the normal single. This use of extra screws being a further indication of a clock from the workshops of Drocourt. The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, diamond and dot markings to the outer aspect, as seen on dials used by both Jacot & Drocourt, and blued steel moon hands. Height: 5½ inches (14 cms) Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below

Drocourt

I have been researching the clocks and lives of Pierre & Alfred Drocourt, and their families, for a number of years now and have unearthed information hitherto unknown which has greatly added to our knowledge of them, as well as debunking some previously held views and confirming others that were of uncertain origin. To read a summary of my work please go to the exhibition page and view the catalogue that was published to coincide with my 2014 Drocourt Exhibition of forty-plus clocks as well as revealing some of the previously unknown history of Drocourt. This research, along with that on the Jacot family, is still on-going and I would be most grateful to hear of any clocks by both Drocourt & Jacot to add to my database.

Price: £1,250.00
