Lot No. 54 (99th Auction)
Barral & fils à Paris, Height 540 mm, circa 1860

An impressive precision table clock with duplex escapement, so called "Èchappement à Coup Perdu"
Case: brass, gilt. Dial: enamel. Movm.: rectangular-shaped brass movement, heavy compensation grid-iron pendulum, spring suspension with transport locking device.

The extremely heavy brass movement is fitted with a duplex escapement with a moving pallet; the escapement is visible on the dial. The massive original key still exists. The pendulum spring can be locked with two screws.

The Barral family of clockmakers came from Geneva originally and is not well known. We know of Jean Maurice Barral , who died in Paris in 1868. It is possible that he was the maker of this remarkable pendulum clock.
