Junghans produced clocks in Germany from 1861 and were known for their lovely movements.  This clock has a Westminster 4/4 chime movement which Junghans produced from the late 1880's through to the war years.  Laterly I believe under the URGOS name.  However due to the design of the case I think this clock is circa 1920's/1930’s. The beautiful tone of the clock is heard when it chimes and strikes the hours and this is due to the size of the 8 large chime rods.  The chime can be turned off if it bothers you at night.

 

As I hope you can see from the pictures the fairly plain Art Deco oak case has a delightful carved motif at the top.  The case does have a couple of marks on it, principally at the base where mopping the floor has faded the feet a little, as you would expect for an item almost 100 years old,  but overall is in very good original condition.  The clock stands 1980mm in height, the base is 500mm at its widest and 270mm in depth.  So a nice manageable size in a modern home.  The Chains, Weights and Pendulum Bob have a gold coloured brushed metal finish as does the Dial which has black painted numerals and hands to indicate the time.  The case door has a round glass covering the dial area while a flat glass panel behind some lovely wooden detail shows off the weights and pendulum through the lower section.

 

I have owned this clock for some 15 years and it was fully serviced about 3 years ago.  Never had any problems with it, but we are downsizing so it now needs a new home.
