English Regency Period Inlaid Bracket Clock
with Double-Fusee Movement and Bell Strike

English Regency Period Inlaid Bracket Clock with Double-Fusee Movement and Bell Strike ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Here is a very elegant English bracket clock for your consideration. It features beautiful rosewood, hand-carving, inlaid brass, and a pair of floral-mount bracket handles on each side that were used at the time to move the clock from the bracket in one room to the bracket in the next. Can't you just imagine your butler moving the clock from the dining room after supper into the library while you read a book by the standing-height fireplace?

Physical: The hand-carved rosewood case, which measures 11"w x 18"h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and appears to have the original finish. The 8" diameter dial is signed J. Edwards, London and appears to have the original paint. The convex beveled glass is original as is the pendulum with original tie-down present.

Mechanical: The eight-day double-fusee movement has recently been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order. It strikes a bell that is mounted above the movement. There are some service dates on the back of the dial, one from 1869.

Comments: Sweet clock that has clearly enjoyed the best of life. Marvelous price just for you. Lovely phone call will make it your own!

French Bronze Desk Clock

Ship From Vista CA

 

A "neighbour" brought this little clock to us. It was given to her dad in England when he retired many years ago. It's a heavy piece, weighing over six pounds.

Physical: The bronze case, which measures 7.75"h x 4.75"w x 3"d retains the original patina and is in overall good condition. This is a clock that could be polished out to make it shiny again, though most collectors would prefer it with the present patina. It also has very thick beveled glass.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only platform escapement movement is in running order and keeping time. Very quiet movement, too.

Comments: Wonderful little clock; very fair price. Give us a call to get it enroute to you.

Shelf Cuckoo by Johann Baptist Beha

Johann Baptist Beha Shelf Cuckoo ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Johann Baptist Beha Shelf Cuckoo ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Shelf cuckoos by Johann Baptist Beha are in high demand by a segment of the clock-collecting world. Extraordinary cases, high-quality fusee movements, wonderful sounds, delightful clocks. Here is yours:

Physical: The walnut, burl and ebonized case, which measures 13"w x 20"h x 8.5"d is in excellent physical condition throughout. It has just been carefully and completely cleaned and polished. The bone hands are original. The hand-carved bone numerals were expertly duplicated from the remnants of the prior numerals and represent exceptional craftsmanship. The articulated cuckoo bird is original and comes out of double doors instead of the typical single door. There is a phenomenal label from the English jewelers, Camerer and Cuss on the inside of the backboard.

Johann Baptist Beha Shelf Cuckoo ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Mechanical: The eight-day, cable-driven double fusee movement with wood plates is original to the clock. It has just been professionally serviced and is in excellent running order, including the cuckoo. The lead-weighted pendulum is correct and original to the clock. The bellows tops are old replacements (typical). Beha apparently had his own special way that he did some things, including how the ratchet springs on the back plate tapered off. This clock has been looked at by some Beha experts, all of whom have confirmed its authenticity for us... and you. It's the little things that make a BIG difference!

Comments: This is a wonderful clock that really grows on you as you are around it. The wood is exceptional, the overall condition exceptional, and the cuckoo is just plain charming. Give us a call to make it your own... or perhaps a special graduation or wedding gift as June is coming soon!

Gustav Becker Baroque
Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

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.

Louis XV Style French Shelf Clock Signed “Mougin” ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is a lovely little French mantle clock in the Louis XV style. There is a tremendous amount of detailing in the brass – take a close look at the photos below.

Physical: The brass case, which has been professionally polished and re-lacquered, measures 8.5"w 11.25"h x 3.75"d and is in excellent physical condition. The porcelain dial with blue numerals is in excellent condition. The original filed iron hands are present and also in excellent condition – beautiful, too.

Mechanical: The eight-day spring-driven,bell-strike, time-only movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order.

Comments: We accept very few of the French shelf clocks that are offered to us. Most are either very pedestrian in design, or in "stressed" condition. Here is an opportunity to one one that is excellent in both design and condition. Give us a call to make your arrangements.
