Item specifics

Age: Antique, Post-1900 Style/ Origin/ Theme: French
Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock Material: Brass
Sub-Type: Carriage Clock Features: 8-Day
This is a really beautiful Bornand Freres brass carriage clock made in Montbeliard which is in eastern France about 8 miles from the Swiss border. The clock is in lovely clean condition with no chips or nibbles to the glass, in excellent working order and keeps perfect time. The clock also comes with antique brass key though I can't confirm it is the original one. I own a Bornand Freres clock myself but although almost identical to this one, it was made in Bicester Oxfordshire. I've tried over the last year or two to research when and why they moved to England but without much success. Many but not all of their clocks have the date etched in the brass baseplate. My own is dated 26th May 1901 and a Montbeliard miniature which I owned was dated 1896, so I am assuming the transfer was at the turn of the century. French carriage clocks were immensely popular in the UK at that time so it probably made sense to move . This clock is not dated but has a number of etched manufacturers marks inside the base. Height 15cm with handle up, width 8cm, depth 6cm.
