Austria Shelf

Catalog Description:

C.1780, Austrian, Complicated Mantel clock, grand sonnerie, with moon phase, day of week and date on subsidiary dials. This is a one day+ clock, but is very well made, with standing barrels for the strike and a fusee for the time train. It retains its original crown verge with rear balance wheel and cock intact. It strikes on two silver bells (original), counting the quarters on a higher pitched bell than the hours. It has a large engraved brass dial mask, a sentry at each side and profuse scrolls and flowers on the remainder. There are some minor losses and repairs, but nothing major; the clock is running and striking. The movement has a dust cover with side doors, and would have originally had an additional wooden protective case. Still a great piece of antiquity. Height 9 inches
