It is a pleasure to offer a fine and very rare miniature Vienna wall clock in lovely original condition and manufactured circa 1880.Having owned a comprehensive collection of this type of miniature clock I can say with some certainly that this example is by far the best I have ever seen.
Please note that this type of clock is very rare indeed with the only other clock of identical construction but different inlay being illustrated on page 249 of '' Black Forest Clocks '' by Rick Ortenburger who described it as '' ..one of the nicest and most intricately detailed cases made..''
Subsequently they are rare items and I have spent almost 30 years driving all over Europe to source these clocks,particularly the finer examples with originality being a paramount requirement.
Unfortunately there are too many people selling modern reproductions to customers.
I offer a full money back guarantee as to the authenticity of my Vienna clocks.I also welcome any expert appraisal whatsoever.
Obviously,any potential clients are very welcome to view the clock prior to purchase (or pay on delivery)to ensure that they are satisfied with their purchase.
As you can see from the photographs this is a very pretty clock which is of true miniature size being only 15 1/2 inches long from the very top of the pediment finial to the tip of the bottom finial.
I have shown this clock next to a standard size 7 inch dial Vienna clock for size comparison purposes.
The tiny spring driven is of 8 day duration and has dead beat escapement.It is of the finest quality and fitted to the case by a latch plates. The wheels are similar to those of a miniature carriage clock with the majority of wheels having five spokes.The dial is in excellent condition and has a diameter of only 3 inches.
The case is veneered in walnut and is inlaid on all sides with some of the finest Tonbridge Ware inlay I have every seen and remarkably all of it is intact.Please study the images of the case to see the quality. All the original finish is present and the patina is perfect..
The overall condition is outstanding being original and well looked after.
There is ,of course,the odd age related mark as you would expect on any item of this age but the condition is a good as anyone could possibly expect. The bottom finial has lost its very tip and there is a dent in the bezel.
The clock functions perfectly having just been professionally cleaned and serviced.
The sides of the case are glazed with original glass as is the front.
Hopefully the images will show show interested parties all they need to see.
This clock is much nicer in the flesh and looks very impressive on the wall.Prospective buyers are encouraged to view this clock if at at possible
If the buy it now price is paid in full then I will deliver and set up the clock free of charge to the English mainland,Wales and the Scottish lowlands.I will also provide a 12 months guarantee under these circumstances.This is the same service that is provided by a high street retailer without the customer having to pay for the overheads
If a lesser off is accepted then this will be sold as a trade sale with the clock as described and with shipping costs the responsibility of the buyer.
I will ship this clock worldwide.
