Henri Jacot - A Miniature Corniche Carriage Clock

A fine miniature Corniche carriage clock by Henri Jacot, the eight day movement has a platform lever escapement, with the backplate stamped with the trademark for Henri Jacot, a parrot on a perch with the initials 'H.J.' either side, along with his serial number 12749 which is repeated to the underside of the gilded brass case. The white enamel dial has a typical Jacot inner ring, black Roman hour numerals and blued steel spade hands. The outer aspect has batons for the five minute intervals, being one of the first recorded having these after the use of the Diamond & Dot markings, with few exceptions, since the beginning of the Jacot carriage clock production in the early 1860s. The serial number 12749 would indicate a date of manufacture of 1900. With original numbered key. Height: 3½ inches (8.8 cms) Although sold, I now have two further identical examples in stock and for sale. Please click on images to enlarge: Any additional images are shown below

Henri Jacot

I have been researching the clocks and lives of Henri Jacot and his family for a number of years now and have unearthed information hitherto unknown which has greatly added to our knowledge of the family 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 2013 Jacot Exhibition of some forty-plus clocks as well as revealing some of the previously unknown history of Jacot. This research, along with that on the Drocourt family, is still on-going an I would be most grateful to hear of any clocks by both Jacot & Drocourt to add to my database.      

Price: £2,200.00
