It is a pleasure to offer a very fine true Vienna regulator wall clock made by the master clockmaker Peter Peuker who worked from 1844 -58 at Mariahilferstrasse 47 , Vienna. This clock can be dated circa 1850
It is beautiful made and has very elegant and restrained proportions .Austrian clocks such as this are entirely hand made and finished by time served master clockmaker and should not be confused with the much cheaper mass produced German clocks.
Austrian clocks were only made for the most discerning customers (who could afford them) and took many months to complete individually.
Subsequently they are rare items and I have spent 30 years driving all over Europe to source these clocks,particularly the finer examples.
Unfortunately there are too many people selling modern reproductions to customers.I offer a full money back guarantee as to the authenticity of my Vienna clocks.
I also welcome any expert appraisal whatsoever.Obviously,any potential clients are very welcome to view the clock prior to purchase (or pay on delivery)to ensure that they are satisfied with their purchase
As you can see from the photographs the rosewood venneers are well figured and enhanced by contrasting boxwood string. The backboard is also veneered in rosewood and strung.
​The clock is 43 inches long , a maximum width of 12 inches and 6 inches deep .The width at the door is only 9 1/4 wide
​The proportions are particularly pleasing as this is a very elegant clock with just enough adornments to make to clock decorative without becoming fussy.The base is very unusual and attractive in its design
​The 3 day hand made weight driven movement is beautifully made and in perfect working order and will be expertly restored by Overton Clocks of Chesterfield prior to sale. The steel rod pendulum has a brass backed knife edged bob which is in excellent condition.
The movement is quite unusual in that it has Grande Sonnierre striking on two coiled gongs which are driven by a weight on the time side and two springs on the quarters . These springs are the reason for the shorter duration and this arrangement is more commonly found on Austrian bracket clocks
​The movement is mounted into the case by means of wooden brackets and seat board. The 7 inch white porcelain dial is in excellent original condition and bears the name of the maker .There are some light surface scratches and a little chipping around the winding holes .The cast pie crust bezel is well detailed.
The condition is excellent and the finish is as good as anyone can possibly expect and has wonderful colour.
There are some age related marks as you would expect on any item which is almost 200 years old but nothing else worth mentioning specifically.is ready to hang straight on the wall.
The proportions are perfect and is worthy of gracing the wall of the most discerning collector.
The sides of the case are glazed .
The original winding crank is present. Hopefully the images will show show interested parties all they need to see but prospective buyers are very welcome to view.
This clock is much nicer in the flesh as my photographic skills are very poor.
If the buy it now price is paid in full I will ,deliver the clock free of charge in England ,Wales and the Scottish lowlands and provide a 12 months guarantee.The movement will also be serviced
Should a lesser offer be accepted it will be a trade sale with the clock being sold as described and shipping costs being the responsibility of the buyer.
I will ship this clock worldwide .
