French Grande Sonnerie Carriage Clock by LeRoy & Fils, the beveled glass and brass case with carrying handle, push repeat button, large top escapement viewing glass, 2 1/4-in. round enameled dial with Roman numerals and signed by the maker, lower alarm dial both with gilt matted surround, Breguet style hands, eight-day time, strike, alarm and grande sonnerie movement with silvered platform lever escapement, together with a leather carrying case, ht. 7 in.

Movement running and chiming properly, slight tarnish on gilt case, leather carrying case too large for the clock and no doubt by association.
