A charming silver French carriage clock made in the "Mignonnette" size, the smallest and most highly collectable of the 19th-century traveling clocks. Made in the Anglaise Riche design, the mini-clock features corner pieces of decorative caryatids. The silver dial with Roman numerals is surrounded by a silver gilt mask. French miniatures such as this one are some of the most fascinating carriage clocks ever made. The meticulous attention given to their detailing is quite amazing and it is easy to understand why examples like this one are so highly coveted.

Circa 1880
