Subminiature R.A. Regulator Ornate Cast Front, c.1880 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

This is an unusual subminiature "R.A."-style Vienna regulator, the style of which, with cast front piece, we have not had available to us in the 18 years we've been in business. There is lots of detail here to observe.

Physical: The ornate cast front piece measures 16.5"h x 7.5"w x 3"d. It has a 2-piece, 3" porcelain dial that is in excellent physical condition. The case overall is in very good, age-appropriate condition. Note the side windows in the box housing the clock mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day R.A. mechanism has been professionally serviced and is in excellent running condition.

Comments: If you are a fan of Vienna regulators and would like to have a truly tiny one that will fit just about anywhere, this would be a great choice.

Questions? Contact us by phone at , or e-mail.

FYI, the clock was sitting on its back when we took the photos, confusing the camera about where it should actually focus, resulting in at least one dial being blown away by the flash and studio lights!

30-Day Altdeutsch Vienna Regulator
Signed
“H. Ellenberger, Wien”

30-Day Altdeutsch Vienna Regulator Signed “H. Ellenberger, Wien” – Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Thirty-day Vienna regulators are prized possessions of knowledgeable collectors. We don't have them very often and are pleased to present this large clock for your consideration. It is of the "Altdeutsch" style which was prominent between 1870-1895

Physical: The walnut case with fine, detailed craftsmanship measures 12"w x 65"h x 7"d is in excellent physical condition and features the original finish. The 6.5" diameter porcelain dial is in excellent condition as well. It has a small hairline between XI-XII. Often, these can be minimized by application of a small amount of bleach on the end of a Q-tip. The dial is signed "H. Ellenberger, Wien" (Vienna). This would likely be the retailer who first sold the clock.

The hands are original, correct, and marvelous. The glass is professionally installed, but we can't vouch for originality. The pulley is very fancy as is the temperature-compensating pendulum with porcelain insert on the bob. Note, too, the fine porcelain beat plate in the bottom inside.

Mechanical: The one-weight, 30-day movement has recently been professionally serviced, is in excellent mechanical condition and ready for many years of great service.

Comments: This clock will attract lots of attention. Will it be in your entryway, sitting room, or perhaps in the conference room of your office? Give us a call to start the process. We'll make shipping arrangements; you pay them directly.

Gustav Becker Baroque
Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Gustav Edward Becker (1819-1885) and his factories were among the best known and most prolific of the Austrian/German clock manufacturing firms. Today, Becker clocks are in high demand by both collectors and those just looking for a decorator piece.

This is a wonderful example in a "Baroque" style case. The Braunau factory where this clock was made was open from 1888-1926, so we know that this clock was made during that period of time, but there are no serial number tables for this factory in the public record. Our best guess on the manufacture date would be in the 1890-1895 period as the Baroque period of the Jugendstill era ended in approximately 1895.

Physical: The walnut case, which has the original finish, measures 16"w x 56"h x 16"d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see in the numerous photos below. The 7" diameter dial has a porcelain outer ring and an etched center as do the weights (center one slightly different) and the pendulum bob. The glass is old, too, though difficult to tell if it is original to the case.

Mechanical: The eight-day movement of the grand sonnerie style was recently professionally cleaned and serviced and is in excellent running order. Please see the linked article. The factory serial number 191697 is stamped on both the front and back plates of the movement.

Comments: Becker clocks have long been in high demand. This one will be no exception. It will be a grand statement in your entry or living room. A simple phone call can start it on its way to you.
