Presented here is a fully restored, beautifully designed and lovely carved Victorian period Vienna wall clock, powered by a two train Germany HAC movement which is dated around late 19th and early 20th century. This large Vienna drop dial clock is full of great features, every single decorative detail has been restored to reflect its previous glory, if not more, and a century long patina has been carefully preserved. The movement has been stripped off and ultrasonically overhauled. It is truly presented in excellent antique condition, in great working order amd keeps good time. It will be an eye-catching piece of antique nicely fitting to any living room wall.
The case has glasses at three sides to show off/protect its shiny bronze movement, the gorgeous dial and lovely pendulum. The side hooked, both sides columned front door has a large flat glass. Please look at the photos for details of the decorative features of the wood works, from the top, side, to the bottom. I believe one piece of finial at the top has long been missing. Otherwise, it is all polished and waxed, presented in splendid, shiny condition.
The two-parted dial consists of a circular silvered chapter ring with large Roman numerals showing the time and a small bronze central plate. Four bronze spandrels at the four corners, whilst compressed, gilded bronze octagonal patterns decorates the central plate. Two blackened spade-shaped hands are used to pointing to the time. The chapter ring shows minor signs of wear.
The clock is fitted with the well-known early HAC two train movement manufactured in Wurttemberg, with the model number (117/30, series No. 300) and the double arrow trademark ascribed on the back plate of the movement. It has been dated to around 1900, most likely before 1900. The movement is either 8- or 14 days (I really cannot count for all the clocks in my room).
The large and heavily decorated bronze pendulum is once again very attractive, its swing is visible from the front and side windows.
A complete overhaul ultrasonically and necessary repairment of the mechanism has just been carried out (see photos). The clock now ticks beautifully and strikes at the half and full hours. It strikes via a bronze hammer on a steel coiled gong fixed to the back which is visible from the side windows. The striking sound is lovely.
The clock comes with it original bronze key.
The clock is impressively large, measures 32-inch long, 15-inch wide, and 7- inch thick (82 x 38 x 18 cm) for the maximum sizes.
There are signs of wears to the case and dial, but nothing that detracts from its overall beauty that comes with age; however you be the judge from the photos which forms an essential part of the description.
I will pack the clock as careful as possible to make sure it arrives safely. Due to the large size, I will take off the top and the bottom finials to avoid damage during transportation, which can be easily fixed with glue or just push them in. If you wish to hear the striking, I can later send you a video link separately.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
