Description of the item

These ebonised and ormolu German made clocks are probably the best of the 'Georgian Revival' clocks that started to appear towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign. As well as being of more modest dimensions, even these best examples are less than 1/4th of the price of the 'period' item. The heavy 8-day movement 'ting-tang' strikes each quarter hour on two gongs. Each hour it strikes the number of hours on a single gong. There is no 'silent' feature.

The ebonised case has stunning cartoyd mounts. The brass dial has gilded spandrels, silvered chapter ring and blued steel hands. Dimensions: 40cm tall; 27cm wide; 20cm deep.

Information about the maker

Winterhalder & Hoffmier were prolific makers of clocks in the late 19th and early 20th C. They were particularly strong in the English market, because their clocks followed the English style and methods. They were based in the Black Forest area of Germany.

We estimate this clock was made approx 1890.
