|Description of the item|
A very good-looking chain-driven fusee wall clock with the desirable 10" dial. In excellent original order with lovely colour and patination to the walnut case. It has a tiny fusee movement of beautiful design and quality. The small movement allows a much narrower back box (whole clock only 12.8cm deep).
It has a semi-deadbeat escapement which adds to the desirability. All fully prepared for sale and ready to enjoy.
|Information about the maker|
Winterhalder & Hofmeier 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 believe these School type clocks were made exclusively for the British market.
|Dimensions & Specification|
Quartered solid walnut frame. 'Deal' backbox with side and bottom doors. Spun brass bezel.
Chain fusee movement of rare small dimensions (Plates only 102 x 112mm) with 8-day duration.
Painted dial with original painted blued-steel hands. c1890-1910.
Case 33.6cm diameter. Total depth (including bezel) 12.8cm (very shallow for a fusee).
Fully prepared for sale. Movement fully serviced. Ready to enjoy. We guarantee that the dial, movement and case are original to each other (ie not a 'marriage').
The whole clock is well patinated (retains desirable signs of age) and hasn't been stripped and repolished. The link to the larger shows the patination well and I can send full size images on request.
