Miniature Lenzkirch Vienna Regulator Wall Clock-very Early And Rare Example For Sale
MINIATURE LENZKIRCH VIENNA REGULATOR WALL CLOCK-Very Early and rare example
It is a pleasure to offer a very fine and early Vienna type wall clock of the finest quality and although one of their earliest, and therefore unsigned ,models it is undoubtedly made by the Lenzkirch clock company and the very lowserial number of81430 dates from 1854.
Spring driven clocks of this quality are,(and always have been ),very very rare andsuch examples appear on the open market seldomly.Amongst the very rare are the miniature ones-this clock is a maimum os 21 inches long to the top of the finial and the enamal dial is only 3 1/2 inches in diameter!
The overall design,proportions and quality are outstanding making this clock much more desirable that the run of the mill clocks that are commonly seen and this can be exemplified by theebony inlay to the walnut casel and the cross banded veneer down the sides of the case.
The 8 day duration movement is of top quality with solid plates and pinions ,not the usualpressed out rubbish.The experts amongst you will recognise the early hands,huge mounting bracket,single screw bridge and pendulum to be the work ofLenzkirch..
The walnutcase has developed a lovely patina with very dark areas contrasting with faded areas to give astunning overall effect.The backboardin veneered in burr walnut which has developed a lovely colour.The clock is onlyatotal of 21 inches long,8 wide and 4 inches deep.The dial is3 1/2 inches in diameter.
There is no wood worm in this clock
The overall condition is excellent and untouched.The polish and finish are original but as with all antiques there is the odd age related mark such as a little veneer cracks.It appears that the top mouldings have been refinished and there is a tiny amount of damage around the winding hole and the very edge which cannot be seen with the movement mounted in the clock.
The images of this clock will show you all you need to know and I will be delighted to answer anyquestions from serious parties.
