MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTION
This well figured rosewood veneered  Vienna wall clock was manufactured around 1870 -1880 in Austria  and has a serial number 16161 stamped in to the back plate of the movement,a picture of this is included after the item description.The clock has a running duration of 8 days and is in excellent and original condition. 
 
The well proportioned and slim case is in excellent condition and veneered in a  well figured rosewood which has an excellent original gloss finish along with a nice patina consistent with a well preserved antique.The case is an unusual style and different in construction to most Vienna regulators in so far as the top of the case is half round as is the door to the case. The detachable top pediment has 10 small finials with a larger central finial. At the bottom of the case there is a typical Vienna style veneered shaped base with a half finial.The case is in excellent and  totally original condition. The  leveling 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 is original to the case.  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 good condition with the exception of some faint hairlines around the 1 and 12 and the dial center near the winding hole. The pulley and the brass cased weight 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 100 years old this clock is in superb original condition requiring no restoration at all.


Height - 46 inches

Max width - 14.  inches (at top)

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.I will also include my contact details should any advice on setting the clock up be required. Obviously collection of the clock is the preferred method also 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.As stated previously my contact details will be supplied should any future advice be required.

PAYMENT ON COLLECTION OR BY CHEQUE IS PREFFERED

The clock can be posted for £35 (U.K.Mainland only) but collection from Derby would be referred.
