About this item

The so-called gorge case has its original gilding. It has bevelled glass panels on all sides so that the movement is entirely visible and is surmounted by a shaped carrying handle. The white enamel dial has a Roman chapter ring, with Arabic five-minute and minute divisions. It is signed and numbered by the maker in the following manner:

Chas. Frodsham & Co.
No 19964 Paris

The time is indicated by a pair of period blued-steel hands. The spring-driven, eight-day movement is constructed between plates. It consists of going and striking trains, as well as alarm. The going train has English lever escapement with hairspring balance. It can be adjusted by a regulator pin which can be seen through the window in the top and is accessible through the back door. The rack striking train indicates the hours fully and the half hour by one stroke on a gong. There is a lever in the bottom of the clock to set the striking for Silent or Striking. In addition, there is a repeat button on the top front side, with which the hour last struck can be repeated at all times. The back plate is inscribed in English to denote the various functions of the arbors. In addition, it is also marked with the maker’s name and numbered.
