SUPERB ART DECO INSPIRED OAK GUSTAV BECKER WESTMINSTER CHIME WALL CLOCK c1925

You don't need me to tell you in what period this lovely clock was created. The use of solid oak, geometrical design and the wonderful, pure deco dial, justsays it all.

As mentioned the case is made of solid, beautifully grained oak with architectural moulding to the top and bottom. Inlaid into this is the superb brass bound, bevelled edged, thick glass that allows the pendulum to be seen working. The long door is heldclosed by a lock on the left-hand side. It measures 34 inches in length, 13 inches at its widest and has a depth of 7 inches.

The dial is superb. Engraved numerals, incised and matted decoration, applied corner studs and ornate hands, all go to make a very stylish face.

Behind the dial beats the quality Gustav Becker Westminster chime, 8 daymovement. The clock chimes on each quarter of the hour, building upto the full chime on the hour, followed by the number of hours. This it chimes on 5 long gong rods, the sound is sooo mellow and tuneful. If you decide to switch off the chimes ( I can't imagine why you would!), there is a "chimes off" lever to the top of the dial. The movement has a full set of makers stamps for Gustav Becker, a fine German clockmaker, and a serial number which would date it to 1925. It is in full working order, complete with its original wood shafted pendulum.

Condition: the clock is fully working, sounding lovely. The front door is a little fiddly to close and lock, but does, and the dial has some verdigris. I have deliberately not tried to clean it as I like it this way, please make use of the photos to see if its to your taste.

This is a large and impressive clock from a renowned, quality maker. I would prefer collection from North Lincolnshire due to its fragile nature, but I am prepared to post, using an overnight courier to lessen time in transit. This can only be done on the understanding it is at the "buyers own risk".

If an extra photo or question answered will help, please just drop me a line.

Good hunting in 2013
