Seller: clockbuster (627) 100%, Location: Sheffield, Ships to: GB, Item: 272459055361 clockbuster Store BIEDERMEIER VIENNA REGULATOR WALLCLOCK It is a pleasure to offer a very fine Biedermeier Vienna clock which is in lovely condition and manufactured circa 1850. Austrian clocks such as this are entirely hand made and finished by time served master clockmakers and should not be confused with the much cheaper mass produced German clocks. Austrian clocks were only made for the most discerning customers (who could afford them) and took many months to complete individually. Subsequently they are rare items and I have spent almost 30 years driving all over Europe to source these clocks,particulary the finer examples with originality being a paramount requirement. Unfortunately there are too many people selling modern reproductions and marriages to customers. I offer a full money back guarrantee as to the authenticity of my Vienna clocks.I also welcome any expert appraisal whatsoever. Obviously,any potential clients are very welcome to view the clock prior to purchase (or pay on delivery)to ensure that they are satisfield with their purchase As you can see from the photographs this is a very slender and delicate clock and is slightly smaller than the "normal" size .The perfect white enamel dial is only 6 inches in diameter as opposed to the standard 7 inches.I have shown it illustrated next to a standard size Lenzkirch Vienna for comparison. The case is veneered in rose wood and walnut and has developed a lovely colour and patina.The overall condition is excellent and ready to hang straight on the wall. Of course there is the odd age related mark as you would expect on any item which is 150 years old The proportions are perfect and is worthy of gracing the wall of the most discerning collector. It is very slim but has extra embellishment with the carvings which enhance the beauty of this clock The hand made weight driven movement has dead beat escapement with a running duration of 8 days .It is in full working order and the original hands are retained. The sides of the case are glazed . The original winding crank is present. Hopefully the images will show show interested parties all they need to see but prospective buyers are very welcome to view. This clock is much nicer in the flesh The clock is 40 inches in length and 10 at its widest point..The depth is 5 1/4 inches. The movement and dial are original the the case. If the buy it now price is paid in full then I will clean the movement, deliver and set up the clock free of charge to the English mainland,Wales and the Scottish lowlands.I will also provide a 12 months guarrantee under these circumstances. If a lesser off is accepted then this will be sold as a trade sale with the clock as described and with shipping costs the responsibility of the buyer. I will ship this clock worldwide .

Domestic buyers are asked to use alternative methods of payment to Pay Pal if at all possible Wire transfers are welcomed from all countries.

If you wish to use your own courier I will do all I can to assist. I only charge actual costs incurred for shipping BUT I will use a large box with plenty of packing to avoid damage and this will make shipping (particulary to foreign countries) a little more expensive due to volumetric weight. Custom made boxes,bubble wrap and peanuts all cost money and the cost of these materials will be added to the cost of shipping.For example a Vienna wall clock costs me £15 in materials.I do not charge for my time for packing. Every care will be taken when packing but no liability will be accepted for damage by the couriers and it must be remembered that it is virtually impossible to guarrantee 100 percent that a peice of glass may not be damaged on the odd occasion. Insurance is a difficult and expensive area with respect to antiques and usually has a low ceiling that is why I use recognised tracked and signed for couriers and do not insure seperately.If you wish to seperately insure your item I will do all I can to assist but the responsibility to arrange the said insurance is with the buyer It is requested that all buyers contact me within 24 hours and pay in full within 7 days unless a prior arrangement is made Please do not agree to buy something unless you intend to pay.
