This French gilded eight-day carriage clock with repeat
and alarm is the epitome of elegance and sophistication.
It has a white enamel dial inscribed ‘Hausmann Co’
with a matching subsidiary alarm dial. The clock also
comes with a key and brown Morocco leather case.
BROOCH, THE SUBJECT
Jewellery of the French en tremblant (‘to tremble’)
style was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries,
for its trembling motion that would cause the
stones – diamonds, in the case of this elegant
19th century lizard brooch – to brilliantly capture
the light and sparkle.
This exquisite decorative urn is
from London’s Fulham Pottery,
established in the mid-17th
century. It is an exceptionally large
piece at 70cm tall and features
detailed floral, vine and leaf motifs.
