Beautiful 3 weight Biedermeier Vienna Regulator. This ca. 1860 Vienna regulator is of classic design and proportions with beautiful carvings. A rare Austrian made, Biedermeier style Vienna Regulator withbrass, weights, and pendulum bob .
The movement is signed "GEORG SCHALER, in ODENBURG" and was completely overhauled a few years back. It is in great condition. This clock strikes on a coiled gong every 15 minutes in a Grand Sonnerie striking sequence.
The clock case looks to me to be Bird’s Eye Maple. It has the sought after "Satin Banding" around the glass edges. I believe that the finish is pretty much original, just cleaned up. I am always amazed at how these old shellac finishes can usually be brought back to a pristine condition. It measures approximately 48 inches long by 14 inches wide at it's widest point. The pictures tell the story, just look below!
Caveats: The crown and bottom carvings are recent replacements.
This clock is really terrific , it runs well and keeps good time. This clock would be a wonderful addition to your collection.
