If you look at the hand set arrow on the back plate, you will see four dots on the arrow’s tail. Couaillet Freres were four brothers, all of whom were in the company and this arrow with the distinctive four dots was their trademark. They were the most prolific basic carriage clock movement makers, making up to 4,000 movements/month, 90% of which found their way into the UK. They sometimes sold in their own right, but in the main, provided basic movements for what were known as the “Parisian finishers”. This movement would have been made somewhere between around 1902 to 1907.
