Item:303215132257MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTIONThis well figured walnut veneered striking Vienna wall clock was manufactured in Germany circa 1880 and has a serial number 139769 stamped in to the back plate of the movement. The clock has a running duration of 8 days and is in excellent and original condition. The well-proportioned case is in excellent original condition and veneered in a very well figured walnut which has an excellent original gloss finish along with a nice patina consistent with a well preserved antique. Unlike many Vienna regulators the clock is restrained in design without the elaborate embellishments found on the later clocks, the straight fluted pillars and the architectural style top pediment give the clock a restrained yet elegant appearance. At the bottom of the case there is a concave veneered base with a further fluted section and a half finial and two finials either side of the base. The case is in excellent and original condition. 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 - 15. 3/4. inches (at top) Max depth - 6. 1/2 inches Dial diameter - 8 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.
