  1. Gilt brass case. top glass slightly chipped, and crack on dial enamel top right. Gilt good, but scratches here and there, A good polish would revive.

    Otherwise very good, with a fine French movement.

    I bought this clock in an antique shop, noticing that the platform escapement was of a very high standard. When I had a full inspection there are marks.
    On the base a triangle stamp and no 175/20200
    On the backplate a triangle cut and the same number.

    My understanding is that Dent adopted the triangle to identify their genuine quality French movements from cheaper imitations.
    It later changed to the triangle with DENT written through. Any information on this would be very welcome.

    These clocks were very first quality at thye time, and you can see from this example how that quality has lasted.

Carriage by Richard
  1. I have seen several similar to this, some with a separate base and glass cover, though I don't think they were all delivered like this.

    A couple of chips from glass - one side panel at top and door (as can be seen in photo of back). However neither very noticeable.

    Lovely Japy movement striking on gong.

    Gilt on top has been worn with polish resulting in slight discolour in places.

    I have replaced one of the mercury bars in pendulum with a stainless insert substitute. Doesn't affect timekeeping - the compensation was always a bit of a pretence really.

    A nice example - not too big, quiet, reliable.
