Gothic Grande Sonnerie
Clock # 4399
Price: $ 2,500

THIS IS AN AUSTRIAN GRANDE SONNERIE WALL CLOCK IN A GOTHIC STYLE CASE. THE HIGH QUALITY MOVEMENT WAS SOLD BY K. KONIGSBAUER IN VILLACH, AUSTRIA, CIRCA 1870’S. THE CASE IS A BASIC GOTHIC STYLE THAT I THINK SOMEONE EMBELLISHED WITH COLUMNS, BOTTOM AND TOP DECORATIONS; WHEN AND WHO DID IT IS UNKNOWN, BUT IT IS A NICE LOOKING CASE.

THE FIRED WHITE ENAMEL DIAL HAS ROMAN NUMERALS; THERE IS A SMALL CRACK IN THE DIAL BETWEEN THE CENTER SHAFT AND THE CENTER WINDING HOLE. THE DIAL IS SIGNED BY THE RETAILER “K. KONIGBAUER, VILLACH”. PART OF THE SIGNATURE WAS WIPED OFF PROBABLY BY SOMEONE TRYING TO CLEAN THE DIAL, THESE SIGNATURES WHERE JUST INKED ON.

THE 8 DAY WEIGHT DRIVEN MOVEMENT HAS 3 LEAD FILLED BRASS SHELLED WEIGHTS HUNG FROM ENGRAVED PULLEYS. THE PENDULUM HAS A WOODEN ROD AND A LARGE BRASS BOB. THE 8 DAY MOVEMENT STRIKES THE QUARTER HOURS ON ONE TUNED ROD AND THE HOURS ON A DIFFERENT TUNED ROD.

H- 49” x W- 14 ¼” x D- 6”
