I think you are very probably right. I suspect he/they were the retailers, rather than the movement makers.If I were a betting man, I would bet that it was manufactured and/or retailed by H. Creaves, Birmingham UK.
This is a completed auction. Not a carriage clock; yet, it shows the name, etc.:
H. CREAVES, BIRMINGHAM, STERLING BOUDOIR CLOCK - Aug 18, 2018 | DuMouchelles in MI on LiveAuctioneers
Another reference to Arthur Bernard Hall, trading as H. Creaves. Who was Mr. Hall?

Excellent! Now you can wind it fully and it will likely run for at least week. However, as zedric says, it would be good to have it serviced if you are going to run it permanently.I went to the cupboard to do as you've suggested, I opened the door and shes already ticking away beautifully !
I think that's a pretty fair estimate. If it were mine, and I didn't especially need to sell it, I would keep it and enjoy it as a nice-looking timepiece.You aren't going to get rich from this one - you might get enough for a meal out, but not if you are bringing a friend, and it might take a while to sell.
