Unusual Clocks
 

A large and impressive wall clock by Lenzkirch c1880.

Solid oak case (the backboard is 33 x 29 inches and nearly an inch thick!) and as you can see is profusely covered with brass mounts, typical of Lenzkirch. Fantastic 10 inch dial with silvered and gilt decoration. Original blued steel hands. Superb patina - doesn't look as if it has ever been repolished! Lenzkirch 2-train movement striking on a gong.

Price: £1500 SOLD - sorry!


Very unusual mantle clock driven by the constant weight of steel balls powering the mechanical movement. Also fitted with stopwork to further enhance the timekeeping ability.

Manufactured 1970's(?) by Harding and Bazely, Cheltenham, England, this is a high quality 'novelty' clock not often seen for sale.

15 inches/ 38cm tall

Price: £695 SOLD - sorry!


 

Unusual and large late Victorian/ early Edwardian longcase clock c1900. 93 inches tall.

3-train weight driven movement chiming Westminster on 16 rods - each note of the normal chime is played by 4 hammers on 4 rods. The hour is struck on 2 large (7 or 8 inch diameter) coiled gongs in the base.

The hammers are raised by tensioned cords that go halfway down the case from the movement.

Nice shaped bevelled glass in the door.

Price: £2950 restored.SOLD - sorry!
