Seller: njd.derby (1.028) 100%, Location: Derby, Derbyshire, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 303281815403 MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTIONThis burr walnut veneered striking Vienna regulator wall clock was manufactured in Germany sometime in the 1880s. It has a serial number 77019 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 and slim case is in excellent condition and veneered in a particularly well figured burr 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 canted corners with rectangular blocks and carved adornments at the top and bottom of the door. The applied mouldings and the finials are partly ebonised contrasting well with the walnut veneer. The door and the sides of the case still has the original glass and the levelling screws and brackets are present. As with most of the earlier cases the top section is integral and not detachable it has a broken arch moulding and a large central finial with two similar but smaller finials to either side. 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 is clean 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 second’s dial, it is in excellent condition with the exception of some very faint hairlines, you may be able to see these in the picture of the dial included after this item description. The pulley, the brass cased weights and pendulum are also in excellent condition. The pierced steel hands are of typical Viennese style As can be seen from the photographs, although well over 130 years old this clock is in superb condition requiring no restoration at all. Height - 53 inches Max width - 16. 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.
