Victorian Oval Carriage Clock With Compass
Victorian oval shaped carriage clock in a ‘patinated’ case standing on a raised circular base.
Enamel dial with Roman numerals and original ‘blued’ steel hands.
Eight day French movement with platform escapement. A compass is mounted on the top with bevelled glass, silvered dial and locking lever.
Not only is it very rare to find oval carriage clocks but perhaps rarer still to find a compass mounted on the top. C.1890
