A rare and very small Viennese Dachluhr regulator in a figured mahogany case.

The glazed case with its unusual inlaid sunburst and arched pediment is veneered in well figured mahogany and line inlaid throughout with a lighter wood (sycamore or holly). There are two adjustable brass locating spikes fitted to the back of the base above where it terminates in an elegant taper.

The enamel dial is fully signed with a fine engine turned gilt bezel and blued steel pierced hands, the minute with counterpoise.

The weight driven movement has a four spoke pulley wheel, brass covered weight and dead beat escapement with ebonised pearwood pendulum rod and brass bob. Inside at the base of the trunk is a silvered brass plaque for the rating scale with numerals I to II to the left and right of a vertical arrow.

Franz Wallner is recorded in ‘Viennese Timepieces’ by Frederick Kaltenböck as working in Vienna s a clockmaker between 1844 and 1853.
