Seller: noelc1969 (318) 99.3%, Location: Christchurch, Cambridgeshire, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 252651619055 ~ Jahresuhren-fabrik Germany Empire Portico 400 Day Anniversary Clock ~ A very rare 400 day anniversary clock in an Empire Portico mahogany case. I know nothing about clocks but from research of the two elephants on the plate I believe that this was made in Germany by Jahresuhren-fabrik around the beginning of the 1920s and is an earlier model. The square dial is silver in colour with gold coloured numerals and hands. It has an unusual torsion 5 ball pendulum that hangs from an earlier type suspension bracket. The four colums have smooth ebonised black shafts with brass capitals and bases. I could only find one other example of this clock case (case same, different clock) that is on Carters and only one other with the square dial. This appears to make this quite a rare, museum piece clock. It has been very hard to find any information at all about this wonderful clock, so would be nice to know more if anyone else does? It appears to be in good working order and all over in very good condition. Glass dome has small shivells in base but these can't be seen as they are recessed into the base. Keys to case and clock. Measures approx 37.5cm high x 24.5cm wide x 21cm deep. Would prefer collection due to fragility of glass and movements - I pack very well but will post at your own risk.
