Born in 1819, Becker trained as a clockmaker in Germany and Austria. In 1850 he opened workshops in Freiburg, Silesia, Germany in 1850. Initially, Becker struggled with untrained help, but won the "Medaille d’Or" for design at the 1852 Silesia Trade Exposition. Becker incorporated that first medal and his initials, G.B., into his trademark and, as you will see below, into many components of his clocks, from movement mounts to wall standoffs to beatplates and pulleys. This award gave him the recognition that he needed to attract skilled craftsmen to his workshops. Numerous awards and certificates followed, from trade expos as far-flung as Australia and as close to home as Vienna. He was very adept at leveraging this new-found notoriety to the benefit of his business enterprise.The award "Medaille d’Or" you can see pressed on the back plate of the movement. The porcelain dial is perfect, and with original hands and seconds bit.Strikes the hours and halves on a single coiled gong. 8 day movement often referred to as a 'latch' movement due to the way it fits to the case mounting plate.A fine quality piece throughout. The clock measures: 140 cm in height, 45.5 cm in width, 18.5 cm in depth. This is a working clock and is in very good condition, given the apparent age of this timekeeping device. There is appropriate and honest wear and patina from true use over the many years.You can hear gongs in my video:https://youtu.be/wQluzMXLqN8Just copy this link in a new tab for watching.
