Rare Old Working German Ornate Copper & Brass Weight Driven Chime Wall Clock For Sale

Rare Old Working German Ornate Copper & Brass Weight Driven Chime Wall Clock

I have never seen another clock like this and frankly, were it not for the cause listed below, this extraordinary clock would remain in our home; no doubt about it. It is a breathtaking work of art and one of the finest chiming clocks I've ever owned. The clock was created in Germany though it's not marked as to origin. I doubt that it was ever intended for export but here it is. The clock case itself is made of cured and aged wood. The face is another matter...it's incredibly ornate and made of cast bronze, I think, and has a copper dial chapter ring; very nice indeed! It is one of the fanciest designs I've ever seen on a clock! There are large, engraved black roman numerals marking each hour and black fancy matching metal hand to point out the time. The clock mechanism is encased in a wooden box and there is a secure wooden door at the very back that slides open to allow access to the weight driven, mechanical movement. A weight driven movement simply means that the chains need to be pulled every 8 days or so to wind the clock and chiming activity. And this clock chimes too! At the bottom of each hour, the clock strikes a single chime on a large brass bell atop the case and correctly chimes the current number of hours at the top of each hour, just like Big Ben in London! The clock works quite well here, keeps good time, and the chimes are heavenly. It is an old clock and we don't know the service history though I did find a service date penciled in on the back: 11-12-06. Nonetheless, some adjustments or service may be necessary once the clock arrives at its new home. We always recommend to our clock customers to service their antique or vintage clocks at least once every three years. Doing so willpreserve a classic clock like this one and keep it healthy for years to come. The clock comes complete as shown with two sets of attached metal chains and a long brass metal pendulum with brass bob on the end. And there are two very heavy brass metal tubular weights as well and not like any others I've seen; very fancy! I've looked the clock over fairly well and can't find any damage or repairs though it does show some light wear or slight discoloration on the dial; nothing detracting...nothing could! The clock is very impressive and a real head-turner. It's the ideal size too measuring about 11 1/2" high (not counting the weights or pendulum), about 4" at its deepest point, and about 9 1/2" at its widest point. The pendulum adds another 15" or so in overall length. This clock is very unique and designed to capture the imagination of anyone seeing it in your home, office, or wherever it is that you care to showcase a beautiful, rare German timepiece with a wonderful legacy behind it. offerwith confidence; I know you will adore this clock!
