1880 Gustasv Becker 3 Weight "grand Sonnerie" Vienna Wall Clock Works Perfect For Sale

1880 Gustasv Becker 3 Weight

THIS IS A sale THAT I HAVE STARTED AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE FOR THIS CLOCK. I BELIEVE IN LETTING THE MARKET DETERMINE THE VALUE

You are offerding on aBEAUTIFULin EXCELLANT CONDITION, Antique RARE" GUSTAV BECKER "GRAND SONNERIE "GERMAN MADE VIENNA WALL CLOCK, The serial number is 393310 and is STAMPED ON THE MECHANISM. theTRADE MARK,which tells uswho made it, also is stamped on the face plate along with the mechanisum number zero " 0 ". this is all shown in the pictures.

All this information tells us the clock wasmade in 1880, 133 years ago. it still runs perfectly. that is the quality ofGUSTAV BECKER.

THE CLOCK CASE WAS ALL HAND CARVEDin GERMANY.In the picturesyou CAN SEE THE OLD TIME CRAFTMANSHIP THAT WENT INTO THE MAKING OF THIS CLOCK.

NOW TO THE RARE PART OF THE CLOCK. THIS HAS THE" GRAND SONNERIEMECHANISM ", WHICH IS NOT COMMON. I'LL TRY TO EXPLAIN THE COMPLEXITIES OF THE MECHANIZM IN THE FOLLOWING:

GRAND SONNERIE REFERS TO HOW THE CLOCK CHIMES. IT IS SOMETIMES CALLED THE "BLIND MANS CLOCK" BECAUSE YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL THE TIME FROM THE CHIMES OF THE CLOCK. THE REASON FOR THIS IS HOW IT CHIMES. THIS CLOCK HAS A DOUBLE CHIME SYSTEM. AT EACH QUARTER THE CHIME SOUNDS TO INDICATE THE QUARTER AND AFTER THAT THE HOUR AS FOLLOWS:

ON THE FIRST QUARTER IT CHIMES ONCE FOR THE QUARTER AND AFTER THAT IT CHIMES THE NUMER OF TIMES IT TAKES TO INDICATE THE HOUR. AS EXAMPLE AT 4 FIFTEEN IT CHIMES A MELODAY ONCE FOR THE QUARTER AND THEN 4 TIMES FOR THE HOUR. AT THE HALF HOUR IT WILL CHIME THE MELODY FOR THE HALF HOUR TWICE AND THEN 4 TIMES FOR THE HOUR. THIS CONTINUES AT THE THREE QUARTER WHEN IT CHIMES 3 TIMES FOR THE 3 QUARTER HOUR AND 4 TIMES FOR THE HOUR, THEN AT THE HOUR IT WILL CHIME 4 TIMES FOR THE HOUR QUARTER AND 5 TIMES FOR THE NEW 5 O'CLOCK HOUR. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE THIS REQUIRES A VERY INTRICATE MECHANISM.

The sound of the chimes are soft and pure.

THIS CLOCK ALLOWS YOU TO SHUT OFF ANY OF THE CHIME SYSTEM AND ALSO TO INDEPENDANTLY PULL A STRING TO TELL WHAT QUARTER HOUR AND HOUR ITIS.

the markings on the clock indicates thisclock was made in1880. It is46 INCHES TALL, 16INCHES WIDEAND 7INCHES DEEP. All the parts are original and as shown in the pictures.It comes with a key and the original pendulum as shown in the pictures.The clock wasrecently serviced and cleaned andkeeps perfect time and chimes (gongs) AS IT SHOULD on the hour and on QUARTERhours.
