MORE PICTURES AFTER ITEM DESCRIPTION. This figured walnut veneered striking Vienna wall clock was manufactured circa 1880. In Germany and has the serial No 154702 stamped into the back plate of the movement a picture of this is included after this item description.The clock has a running duration of 8 days and is in excellent and original working condition. The well-proportioned and slim case is in excellent condition and veneered in a 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 straight sided giving a restrained yet elegant appearance reminiscent of some of the earlier Biedermeier cases. At the top of the case is an ebonised detachable carved crest, other details are also ebonised contrasting well with the walnut veneer. The case is particularly slim measuring just 10 1/2 across the door and 13. At the bottom of the case the shaped base is typical of the earlier Vienna regulators. The case is in excellent and original condition. The levelling 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 is clean 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 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 over 120 years old this clock is in superb condition requiring no restoration at all. Dial diameter - 7 inches.
