Seller: trotterclocks (1,482) 100%, Location: Edenbridge, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 143417392635 ANTIQUE / VINTAGE LARGE GERMAN WESTMINSTER CHIME MANTLE CLOCK.MADE IN WURTTEMBERG. WORKING FOR RESTORATATION. Circa 1920's - 1930's As part of my clock clear out I am listing further clocks that are in working order but suitable for further restoration as the buyer requires and I won't get round to it. So here for auction is a large German made in Wurttemberg Westminster chime mantle / shelf clock. Wurttemberg is in the Black Forest region of Germany and that area was famous for all of the clock making factories. As was common after WW1 for quite a number of years, clocks from Germany did not carry either the makers name or even Germany, just the name of the town or region to comply with import regulations. This is one such examle so that would date it in the 20's or early 30's. Well made 3 train movement with going barrels and pendulum controlled escapement. Key wound from the dial side. Features a Westminster chime + strike, played on a tuned 5 rod pedestal mounted gong block. Chime progresses each quarter with full chime on the hour. Then followed by Hour strike played on 3 of the gong rods. Chime is played on 4 of the rods. There is a chime shut off lever operated from the dial side at 3. o'clock. Pendulum is original and a key will be supplied. Movement is in working order and has been ticking away for 2 weeks, but has not been regulated or serviced. Instructions for beat setting and time correction are on a label affixed to the rear door. The clock case is veneered in medium oak with a decorative moulding to the bottom on the sides and front.Traditional Napolean hat shape. The condition of the case is good and strong with no apparent loss of veneer, however the finish would benefit from cleaning / polishing and or possibly refinishing. Dial is enclosed by a 6 inch convex glass glazed bezel. Hinge has a small amount of drop that does not interfere with opening or closing. Brass requires clean and polish. Dial numerals are black Arabic on a silvered background with outer minute & 5 minute marker track. Chime shut off lever at 3. Dial condition is very good with little or no marking and the 3 key holes are fitted with their metal grommets. Dial is unsigned and finished with double spade hands. As with all large cases the chimes sound good and harmonious. With just a little work this clock will look really good and sound great. No reserve & low start. Dimensions: Height: 23 cm's (9 inches). Width: 42 cm's ( 16½ inches). Depth: 15 cm's (6 inches). Weight unpacked. 3.7 Kg's Please study all pictures as they form part of any descriptionPlease see my other listings and watch for future items as I shall be disposing of a lot more clocks from my collection including some unfinished projects such as a W.R.
