Here is a fabulous, rare miniature solid silver and guilloche engraved translucent enamel covered hallmarked and boxed carriage clock signed by the best movement maker (JTC) and signed on dial by original retailer ASPREY. Stamped on handle, base, inside door and movement. Also the original gold tooled travelling case is signed inside on the silk lining, ASPREY, 56 BOND STREET, LONDON. The clock measures 2.85" tall to the top of the handle and is very heavy, made from solid silver and hallmarked everywhere. The original 8 day movement has been serviced recently. It is signed by JTC and numbered 12840 with its original integral winding key. The import marks are for London, dated 1915 by CHARLES WILLIAM GUIGNARD. The clock sits on its original solid silver bun feet, all of which are excellent. The white enamel dial is in perfect condition with original thick beveled glass cover and original blued steel hands. The pink guilloche enamel is laid over engraved sunburst rays and the decoration is surrounded by white enamel bands. All four sides and top of the clock are enamelled. The enamel is superb and in mint condition everywhere, albeit a very slight colour shade difference (hard to see in most lights) on bottom left hand corner. This has been professionally restored from a tiny chip, as you can see, but the repair is very well done - just a slight difference in shade of about 3mm in size in bottom left hand corner (see pic 3). This is only mentioned for accuracy and is hardly noticeable, otherwise this clock is in completely mint condition. Very scarce by this top maker and in beautiful condition, it looks like it has hardly ever been out of its travelling case over the last 100 years or so ...
