AN UNUSUAL OPEN FRONTED LONGCASE CLOCK. THE CASE IS MADE OF SOLID TIMBER AND IS HEAVY. OBVIOUSLY IT WAS A QUALITY PIECE OF FURNITURE. IT IS VERY RETRO IN STYLE AND WOULD FIT IN WITH OTHER KITSCH/RETRO FURNITURE OF THE PERIOD.

THE BRASS ARCHED DIAL IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH A PATINATED FINISH. THE GERMAN MOVEMENT RUNS FOR EIGHT DAYS AT A WINDING AND IS WOUND BY GENTLY PULLING THE CHAINS TO RAISE THE WEIGHTS. THE PENDULUM AND WEIGHTS ARE VISIBLE.

QUALITY GERMAN WEIGHT DRIVEN TWO TRAIN TING-TANG STRIKING MOVEMENT. STRIKES THE NUMBER OF HOURS ON THE HOUR AND ONCE ON THE HALF PAST.

ORNATE DIAL IS PATINATED TO A BRONZE BACKGROUND WITH A SILVERED CHAPTER RING.

I HAVE ONLY SEEN A COUPLE OF THESE CLOCKS BEFORE-I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY WERE MADE.

THIS IS A HEAVY ITEM-SO COLLECTION ONLY. BUYERS CAN ARRANGE TO COLLECT IN PERSON, ORGANISE THEIR OWN CARRIER OR WE CAN DELIVER AND SET UP THE CLOCK FOR A REASONABLE CHARGE-PLEASE email US YOUR POSTCODE FOR A QUOTE.
