Rare Wooden Cased English Carriage Clock’Four Glass. An exceptionally rare English carriage clock in a wooden case by French. This type of clock is often referred to as a English Four Glass. Made probably in the mid 19th century, it was during this period French made some of his the very best clocks. Some clocks were made in a style like James McCabe and in this style, many had this type of quality handle. Some had pendulums while the very best examples had a large platform. This particular clock has retained its original platform. Amazingly a previous owner thought that it was a good idea to fit a electric movement to it, so all that I have is the back plate which like the dial is fully signed, I do not have any wheel work etc. This clock has three fixing brackets when most only have two, while there are also five pillars rather than the usual four, another sign of quality. The front plate is present but has unfortunately had a large hole cut into it. The dial is original, signed and engraved. I have the two dial hands look original?? . The platform is wonderfully engraved and has a diamond in it? While the balance wheel may be gold? The case is terrific with nice thick bevelled glass and one of the pillars at the back of the case along with two of the top scrolls are missing. The doors are good and original and the case is nicely carved and ebonized. There are very few of these left in existence, some can be found in Derek Roberts carriage clock reference book (Page 285,293) by Frodsham and McCabe. It Measures 9.5in tall with handle down 10.5in with it up. Please view carefully as the photos form part of the description. A quality and amazingly rare restoration project, don’t miss out.
