Item:303189896791MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTION This well figured walnut veneered striking Vienna regulator wall clock was manufactured by H.Endler & Co of Freiburg in Germany sometime in the 1880s. It has a serial number 113117 stamped in to the back plate of the movement along with the H.Endler trade mark ,the same trade mark is also stamped into the back of the clock case I have included a picture of this as part of the clock description. H.Endler & Co produced high quality regulator cases and movements, the trade mark was registered on 10th August 1877. The clock has a running duration of 8 days and is in excellent original working condition. The well-proportioned and slim case is in remarkable condition having been the subject of restoration around 40 years ago. It is veneered in a particularly well figured walnut which has an excellent gloss finish consistent with a well preserved antique. In place of the more usual half round pillars the door to the case has 3/4 turned finials and rectangular blocks at the top and the bottom of the door giving a restrained and elegant appearance to the clock. As with most of the earlier cases the top section is integral and not detachable and has a particularly nice moulding with two similar finials and a central cresting. The mouldings, finials, and embellishments are in excellent condition and are ebonised contrasting well with the walnut veneer. The case is in excellent and totally original condition. The 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 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. 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 over 120 years old this clock is in superb original condition requiring no restoration at all. Height - 47 inches Max width - 16. 3/4. inches (at top) Max depth - 7 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.
