Henri Jacot, Paris - A Bambu Carriage Clock with Engraved Dial

A 'bambu' cased carriage clock, of a type typical of Jacot, with a fluted handle and unusual silvered and engraved dial which  has floral decoration to the centre picked out in gold, and with a matt silvered mask and sight ring. This style of engraving, a  deep gilded V across a lined base, was used by Jacot for a number of the better clocks.  The eight day duration movement strikes the hours and half hours on a gong, with a repeat button to the top, and has a typical platform lever escapement as fitted by Jacot and is numbered by the escapement maker 9521 on the underside. The gong block is stamped with the initials F.D. being those of the gong maker as used by Jacot in the earlier years. The backplate is stamped with the Henri Jacot trademark, an African grey parrot, known as a Jacot, sitting on a perch, along with the serial number 5344, which gives a date of manufacture of 1884. The inside of the frontplate is stamped with the hidden poincon giving the last date of an exposition award as silver at Paris in 1878. The bamboo style case is fully gilded and has a fluted handle, in a form that was also used by Drocourt on their more  'English' style carriage clocks. Height: 7 inches (17.8 cms) 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.
