car 256 A good decorative repeating carriage clock by Couaillet


This carriage clock was made by the Couaillet family from the French region of St-Nicolas-d'Aliermont. This area of France is renowned for both large and small firms of clock makers. The Couaillet family produced clocks mainly for export to the United Kingdom using Pitcher as main retailer and supplied blancs to other clock manufactures. The main factory was set up in the late 1800's, destroyed by fire and rebuilt. The main building was once again destroyed by fire and rebuilt yet again in 1913. They continued to supply clocks to the retail trade up until the middle of the 20thc.

The clock is circa 1900. It has a cream white dial with Arabic numerals. There is a floral design around the gilded mask. The corners of the clock have turned and reeded pillars.
The original lever escapement can be viewed through the deep cut glass viewer to the top.
