Henri Jacot - A Corniche Striking Carriage Clock

The   eight-day   duration   movement   strikes   the   hours   &   half-hours   on   a   gong   and   has   a   platform   lever   escapement   of   the later   type   used   by   Jacot   with   the   crescent   bridge.   The   backplate   is   stamped   with   the   HJ   trademark,   an   African   grey   parrot   (a Jacot)   on   a   perch   with   the   initials   HJ   either   side   along   with   the   serial   number   17665.   The   dialplate   and   inside   of   the frontplate   are   stamped   with   the   Jacot   oval   giving   the   various   dates   for   Exhibition   awards;   the   last   on   this   one   being   for 1898. The   white   enamel   dial   has   black   Roman   numerals,   diamond   and   dot   quarter   hour   &   five-minute   markings   to   the   outer aspect, blued steel spade hands and typical Jacot inner ring. The gilded brass case is of the Corniche style and has the stepped base as seen on later models. The serial number 17665 would indicate a date of manufacture for circa ?????

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
