Henri Jacot - A Corniche Striking Carriage Clock

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: £2,000.00
