Object Description

A fine and extremely elegant Vienna regulator of wonderful proportions with a mahogany-veneered and boxwood line inlaid case, c. 1840-50 (German: Dachl-Uhr). The elegant case has a triangular architectural pediment, glazed front door and sides, and a moulded tailpiece at the bottom.

The 6.5-inch white enamel dial is set in a high-quality engine-turned bezel and has a Roman chapter ring with five-minute and minute divisions. The time is indicated by a fine pair of pierced blued steel hands of typical shape.

The carefully conserved eight-day brass movement is constructed between rectangular plates and consists of a going train only, driven by a single brass-cased lead weight of typically Vienna regulator shape. It has dead-beat escapement, beat regulation and Harrison’s maintaining power.

The clock keeps exceptionally good time as one would expect from a piece of this quality.

Measures: Height: 95cm, width of the body 22cm, pediment 28.5cm.
