The famous firm of Gustav Becker were prolific makes of "Vienna" type wall regulators ,the majority of which were produced for the mass market and were quite mundane. However the company received many awards and medals for their finer clocks which were exhibited at the major expositions throughout Europe and America and it was with these clocks that their reputation was established .
This particular example is certainly one of their finer clocks which has the very rare feature (on German clocks) of a month duration movement.It is styled on the designs used in earlier Austrian clocks
The case has a one piece door and is made from Oak which is a lovely warm colour .It is embellished by fine carvings to the canted corners and cresting.
The 7 inch porcelain dial with subsidiary seconds is in perfect condition and retains the original hands .
The 30 day weight driven movement has dead beat escapement with adjustable pallets.It bears the Becker trade marks and the serial number 250671 which dates the clock at 1879.It is in full working order having been recently serviced.
The overall condition is excellent and the only minor area of detriment is that the maintaining power lever has been removed in the past.It does not affect the clocks function but I will have it replaced at the buyers request if the asking price is paid in full.
Prospective buyers are very welcome and encouraged to view this item to see how nice it is in real life.
The maximum length is 43 inches ,16 wide and 6 1/2 deep.
