This is a pretty walnut Vienna wall clock / timepiece, which is of slim proportions and of a wonderful design.
The detailing throughout the clock is superb. The clock is Victorian and dates to circa 1860 / 1880
The top is finished with an ornate “Prancing Horse” pediment. This creates a super grand effect as can be seen from the photographs.
There are also lovely applied detailing to the pediment, which sets the clock off beautifully.
Moving down, the hinged door has a near full length glass window which is arched at the top, and flanked by shaped and reeded columns.
To the side are glazed panels, these create a backlight effect and allow the pendulum motion to be seen from either side of the clock.
The bottom platform has a lovely shaped section with finials, each side and centre.
The enamel dial has a chapter ring marked out with Roman Numerals, the shaped fingers set it off beautifully.
This clock has an 8 day movement, “grid-iron” brass pendulum, with the original winding key. Striking the hour and half-hour on a single coiled Gong, the clock keeps good time, and has had a recent oil service.
It measures 40” from the top pediment to the bottom centre finial, and 15” at the widest point.
This clock would grace any lounge or hallway. It is in good working order and condition, but as with all antiques, there may be odd marks commensurate with its 136 years of age.
