Thank you for the info - I wasn’t sure about winding it - didn’t want to damage it. Gave it a wind anyway and it works! We’ll see how well it keeps time. I’ve attached pics of the sides of the case. Thank you again.Welcome to the board.
Your clock is made in France and the H&H on the back may be the logo of Harris & Harrington, which was a company in New York importing clocks to the US. However, I am not sure about this attribution.
You don't say what is wrong with your clock. Have you wound it? I know that sounds a little obvious, but it is often overlooked. Wind it and gently shake the clock in a rotary motion - it may start ticking!
It would be good if you could post a photograph of the platform escapement (the little wheel that is visible through the top glass).
Others will surely be along soon to tell you more.
Your clock has an alarm but not striking. The lower dial on the front sets the time at which it should go off, when it does it rings on a bell in the base until the spring runs down. If you don't want to use the alarm don't wind it.I just wound it till it stopped. Winding the chime makes it chime continuously until in winds down. Is there a setting that stops that. I see an S and F at the top with a small lever above them. Is that something to do with the chime?
It's taking the discussion a bit off topic, but there are chiming carriage clocks, some with Westminster or other chimes, some with music, but they are not very common.Some French carriage clocks have a striking train that doesn't have a warning, but it looks as if this is purely an alarm clock, no?
I've never seen a chiming carriage clock.
The "France" on the movement indicates a no older than date of 1891. The "France" on the dial dates it to no older than 1909.I gave the clock a full wind with the key and it has been keeping time. Is there any way to date to clock? There are numbers stamped into the inside of the case door frame as well as on the bottom next to the bell. Thank you for all the information so far.
