Pierre and Alfred Drocourt

Pierre Drocourt, born 1819 & his son Alfred, born 1847, were one of the top maker’s of carriage clocks in the mid to late Victorian period, having a factory at Saint-Nicolas-d'Aliermont, the most important town for carriage clock manufacture at the time, as well as premises in Paris at Rue Debelleyme 28; previously named Rue de Limoges prior to 1867, where he joined the well-known maker Blanpain. They made superb carriage clocks which were often decorative and were awarded numerous medals at exhibitions, such as the Bronze Medal at Paris 1867, the Silver at Paris 1878 and the gold at Paris in 1889. Alfred succeeded his father Pierre in circa 1871, when Pierre retired and returned to his home village of Guitrancourt with his wife Marie and daughter Melanie. For further details on the Drocourt family and their clocks, see my 2014 Exhibition catalogue available to view from the catalogue section above, where there is a summary of my research.
