A French carriage clock with rare striking, Grottendieck Brussel, circa 1880


The dial

The 5-cm enamel dial has Arabic numerals and is signed for the retailer Chs Grottendieck Bruxelles. It is placed in a matted gilt mask. The spade hands are made of blued steel.

The movement

The movement is driven by two spring barrels and has a duration of eight days. It is regulated by anchor platform escapement in combination with a balance. The clock has a very rare striking system which strikes five blows each ten minutes probable marking a doctor’s or lawyer’s consult. The striking can be switched off with a lever on top of the case.

The case

The gilt brass case is of the corniche type and has beveled glass panels on all sides. It is surmounted by a carrying handle and raised on a plinth with bracket feet. The bottom is marked Ed Chartier Paris.
