Item:183520573387Vintage Art Deco Kienzle Timber full Westminster and Whittington Dual Chime Mantel Clock, Restored/Overhauled For sale is this handsome and very original Art Deco mantel clock, believed to date from the mid 1930s, which has been subjected to an extensive programme of refurbishment. Typical of its' period, the case has attractive base and side mouldings and drop diamond style front decorations, and is now in very good order. The clock has a quality German Westminster/Whittington Chime movement, marked with a winged clock, and believed to be by Kienzle. The clock will enhance any mantelpiece or sideboard in any period styled dining room or lounge. It winds up via the keyholes in the dial, and the chime style is selected by the small lever adjacent to the 3. Constructed of timber/veneer with a silvered dial and Arabic numerals which are all original, the clock has its' original polished chrome hinged bezel, glass, and original black pointer style hands. The external case has been cleaned, removing decades of dirt and old furniture polish, and then given 4 coats of new French polish to enhance but not alter the original colour. It has then been finished with beeswax polish to the high shine that you see. Please study the photos which form the main part of the description, noting some minor age related marks do, of course, remain. There is a small area on the back where a severe chip has been repaired before French polishing (see photo). The front bezel, when opened, drops slightly due to wear on the hinge. The quality Kienzle movement has been removed, dismantled, and cleaned in professional clock cleaning solvent to remove dirt and tarnish, repaired as necessary, and then reassembled and lubricated with fresh quality clock oil before running on test for a full 4 weeks before listing here. It now keeps very good time, and strikes the hour and chimes each quarter with your choice of Westminster (Big Ben) or Whittington chime. The more unusual Whittington chime is more musical and particularly pretty. The clock can be silenced completely if desired using the level on the dial, and it is supplied with the original pendulum and a period (not original) key. Dimensions: Apx. 39 x 18 x 23 cm. Viewing is welcomed - please just drop me a message. (DN19, North Lincolnshire.) Collection in person only. Sorry, but the clock is 80 or so years old and quite heavy, so please don't ask me to post it!
