An extremely good quality walnut clock with ormolu mounts and ornate sound frets to the sides of the case. The clock has a decorative brass dial and silvered chapter ring with a slow-fast mechanism and is another fantastic Winterhalder and Hofmeier ting tang movement that strikes the quarters, halves, and hours on two gongs. Winterhalder & Hofmeier were considered the finest clockmakers of the Victorian era and were based in Germany’s Black Forest region. The company was established in 1810 and in 1850 Anton Hofmeier joined the company, who was himself a clockmaker and relative to the Winterhalder family. The company then became known as Winterhalder and Hofmeier. This is the larger size of this style available and has been fully restored; standing 16 inches tall it comes with working locks and key and has my standard two-year warranty.
Clockwise has clarified that the Antique Eight Day Large W&h 'ting-tang' Bracket Clock (LA357210) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1860
Rather than trusting a courier of any sort I unreservedly recommend collection or I can deliver regionally/nationally. All antique clocks require delicate handling and specific setting up so it is far better for a dealer to meet a client and talk them through the process, or set the clock up for them, rather than leave the client struggling at the other end on their own.
