Henry Capt, Genève Beautiful Miniature Enamel Panelled Carriage Clock

£8,750.00

A small repeating grand sonnerie / petite sonnerie with beautiful Art Nouveau guillouché enamelled panels and enamelled dial in a gorge case, by Henry Capt of Geneva, Switzerland, a clock, watch, and jewelry maker renowned for his high-quality pieces. The front and side panels are a wonderful bright blue translucent enamel laid onto fine engine-turned silver plates, and decorated by gold and deep red shaded Iris flowers with a fine gold outline. The dial is well-balanced and has a nice patina, with perfect Roman numerals and delicate blued steel spade hands, signed ‘Henry Capt, Genève’, ‘Ls Gallopin & Cie Succrs’, with a fine golden border and matching subdial for the alarm function. The movement is quite exceptional, especially for such a small piece, wonderfully designed and fit neatly within the plates, partly visible along with the silvered escapement through the bevelled glass panel to the top. Under the base plate is a three-position lever for grand sonnerie, petite sonnerie, and silence, striking on two gongs, and stamped with serial number 9079. It comes with the original leather carry case and key, in great condition itself and with a dark red velvet interior. Made circa 1890. A very rare and special clock indeed.
