Seller: njd.derby (1.025) 100%, Location: Derby, Derbyshire, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 303235326646 MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTION This burr walnut veneered striking Vienna regulator wall clock was manufactured in Germany sometime in the 1880s. It has a serial number 143782 stamped in to the back plate of the movement, I have included a picture of this as part of the clock description. The movement has a duration of 8 days and is in excellent working condition. The well-proportioned case is in excellent condition and veneered in a well figured burr walnut which has an excellent original gloss finish along with a nice patina consistent with a well preserved antique. In place of the more usual half round pillars the door has ¾ turned pillars with carving of a quality not often found on clocks of this type, in particular the Corinthian capitals at the top of each pillar and the acanthus leaves on the lower section of the pillar. The top pediment consists of 2 carved pieces either side of a veneered block and a large finial, the pediment is fixed and the finial is detachable. The mouldings, finials, door embellishments and applied carvings are in excellent condition and are partly ebonised contrasting well with the walnut veneer. The case is in excellent and totally original condition. The original levelling screws and brackets are present and the glass to the sides and the door of the case is original. As with all weight driven Vienna regulators the movement is of the highest quality having maintaining power and dead beat escapement for accurate timekeeping. The movement has just been professionally cleaned and restored and is original to the case. It is keeping excellent time and striking reliably. Striking is every hour (once for each hour indicated) and then once for every half hour on a coiled steel gong fixed to the movement mounting bracket. I have included some pictures of the movement at the end of the item description. The white porcelain dial has Roman numerals and a subsidiary seconds dial, it is in excellent condition with no damage or hairline cracks at all. The 2 pulleys and the brass cased weights and pendulum are also in good condition .The pierced steel hands are of typical Viennese style. As can be seen from the photographs, although well over 120 years old this clock is in superb original condition requiring no restoration at all. Height - 55 inches Max width - 16. 5/8. inches (at top) Max depth - 7. 1/4 inches Dial diameter - 7 inches. If the clock is to be sent by post it will be securely packaged in a custom made heavy duty double wall corrugated cardboard box with adequate bubble wrap and other materials to protect the clock, these boxes cost me £18. Only world leading couriers will be used with full on line tracking. Where possible the ebay global shipping programme will be used and again full on line tracking will be available. Of course collection of the clock is also an option and the new owner of the clock will be able to see the clock running and time will be taken to demonstrate the setting up procedure after the clock has been moved. All clocks are tested for a minimum of 1 month. WOULD BUYERS OUTSIDE OF THE UK PLEASE ASK FOR SHIPPING COST IF NOT ALREADY STATED Keep scrolling down for more photos.
