Extraordinarily Rare Cased Giant Drocourt For Martin & Co.


An exceptionally large or ‘Giant’ carriage clock by the well known retailer Martin & Co and made for them by Drocourt. Extraordinarily this clock also retains the original outer leather case and Key which are both numbered to match. The back plate is stamped with the Drocourt oval and numbered 8902. Alfred and Pierre Drocourt were exquisite clockmakers, they had a factory in Saint-Nicolas-d’Aliermont, which was regarded as the most important town for carriage clock manufacturing. The majority of their clocks would go to their Paris premises and dispersed amongst the world’s top retailers of that time. They exhibited at the major exhibitions winning a bronze medal at Paris 1867, the Silver at Paris 1878 and the gold at Paris in 1889. The son, Alfred, succeeded his father Pierre sometime in the 1870’s. This clock has a mellow gong strike and push repeat (the little button at the top). The clock is running for a week on a wind . Also this clock is shown unrestored. The mercurial gilt finish has been very well preserved due to spending many years inside the original outer leather covered travel case. We recommend viewing this clock in our shop if possible. 24 month U.K. guarantee.
