Seller: njd.derby (936) 100%, Location: Derby, Derbyshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 302395335926 MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTION This well figured walnut veneered striking Vienna wall clock was manufactured in Germany circa 1880 and has a serial number 43093 stamped in to the back plate of the movement,a picture of this is included after the item description.The clock has a running duration of 8 days and is in excellent and original condition. The well proportioned and slim case is in excellent condition and veneered in a well figured walnut which has an excellent original gloss finish along with a nice patina consistent with a well preserved antique.The door to the case is carved and the curved shape is known as serpentine. At the top of the case is a detachable carved crest and at the bottom of the case is a shaped and veneered base typical of the period with a half finial. The mouldings and the carved crest are ebonised contrasting well with the walnut veneer.The case is in excellent and totally original condition. The leveling screws and brackets are present and the glass to the sides and the door of the case is original. As with all weight driven Vienna regulators the movement is of the highest quality having maintaining power and dead beat escapement for accurate timekeeping.The movement has just been professionally cleaned and is original to the case. It is keeping excellent time and striking reliably. Striking is every hour (once for each hour indicated) and then once for every half hour on a coiled steel gong fixed to the movement mounting bracket. I have included some pictures of the movement at the end of the item description. The white porcelain dial has Roman numerals and a subsidiary seconds dial ,it is in excellent condition with no damage or hairline cracks at all. The 2 pulleys and the brass cased weights and pendulum are also in good condition.The pierced steel hands are of typical Viennese style. As can be seen from the photographs,although well over 100 years old this clock is in superb original condition requiring no restoration at all. Height - 47 inches Max width - 14. 3/4. inches (at top) Max depth - 5. 3/4 inches Dial diameter - 7 inches. If the clock is to be sent by post it will be securely packaged in a custom made heavy duty double wall corrugated cardboard box with adequate bubble wrap and other materials to protect the clock, these boxes cost me £18. Obviously collection of the clock is the preferred method also the new owner of the clock will be able to see the clock running and time will be taken to demonstrate the setting up procedure after the clock has been moved.As stated previously my contact details will be supplied should any future advice be required.
