Boulle Chaffcutter Carriage Clock Antique Carriage Clocks Chaffcutter   Boulle tortoishell %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
This is a very rare and early carriage clock or Pendule Portative of French manufacture dating from the middle of the nineteenth Century which is in first class condition having been subject to a sympathetic professional restoration to the case and movement.
? The 8 day duration mechanism is signed Moser Paris and has strikes the hours and half hours on a bell. It is very unusual in that it has a dual plane Chaff Cutter escapement which was invented by Paul Garnier. The porcelain dial is in excellent condition (save a slight scratch that I cannot see without glasses ).It is also signed by the maker.
?The front glass lifts from the top to allow access to the dial
?It is in perfect working order having been professionally restored by a member of the Worshipful Clockmakers Company.
The red marine shell veneered case is of complicated design being curved on all sides and brass inlaid on the front and top which is also decorated with cast brass moulding and summounted by a carrying handle.
?Please note the stepped base which has brass between each step.There is a glazed aperture showing the original escapement.
? Again, the case is in superb condition , without any losses ,having been professionally restored.
? ?The clock functions perfectly and is supplied with winding key .
The overall condition is excellent and will delight the most discerning buyer.
The images should show prospective buyers all they need to see but a personal inspection is very welcome as this item is actually nicer in real life than the images depict.
? ? ? The clock is just over 9 inches tall ,handle up and 7 3/4 with the handle raised.It is 6 1/4 inches wide and 5 1/8 deep
Although I provide detailed photographs to the best of my ability this clock really needs to be personally viewed to appreciate to quality.
