Seller: john-f-t (334) 100%, Location: Alfreton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 174239635613 This is a a stylistic Arts & Crafts or Secessionist Mantel clock by the Hamburg America Clock Company (HAC) which was formed in 1876 in Schramberg by the son-in-law of Erhard Junghans with whose original company HAC was in strong competion.The clock movement is housed in a very distinctively-designed, solid oak case mounted with pressed-out decoration to the brass dial, four decorative brass trims and a pendulum aperture covered with a glass which has an engraved, 'maltese-cross', frosted glass so you can see the pendulum moving. The backplate of the movement is marked with the well-known, crossed arrows HAC trademark which was registered in 1892; probably around the date this clock was made. The movement is unusual in that its duration is 14 day (see label) and it strikes (with both a half hour and on-the-hour strike), very musically, on a large bell mounted on top if the case inside a brass galleried 'cage' using a hammer which reaches up from the movement inside the bell and therefore cannot be seen. Both mainsprings are OK and when wound, everything works and the clock ticks away happily as it should. By the style of the key, I would say that this is the original clock key. HAC produced some very good Arts & Crafts/Secessionist style cases at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century and the story is that they hired top name European designers to work on these. In England, the clocks were imported and sold in the so-called 'Art Furniture' shops and this model has been seen bearing a Liberty furniture stock label and they may have been the original importers. This is an antique clock and I therefore cannot guarantee it and advise that it will need to be levelled and set up correctly by a competent clock person. Condition: Both mainsprings are OK and when clock is working, and strikes, when wound. The oak case is good with no obvious flaws (see photos). In the not too distant past someone has cleaned and lacquered the brasswork and it is still fairly clean and bright., Age: German - late 19th Century movement, Material: Oak case, brass trims, brass movement, Type: Arts & Crafts / Secessionist, Features: 8-Day, Clock Type: Mantel Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: German
