Description

Lenzkirch clocks are without doubt the most highly collectable of all antique clocks made in the Black Forest region of Germany during the 1800s. Their quality and beauty set them apart from all others. The craftsmanship and highly decorated cases quickly established Lenzkirch clocks as the best of the best. Founded in 1851 as a stockholder corporation, the Lenzkirch clock factory was the first of its kind in the Black Forest.

These clocks are well documented and can be dated accurately from their serial number This particular example is serial number 70880 which together with the ‘1 million’ mark dates it to 1896.

This example is an 8 day timepiece with pendulum regulation. The movement has been fully stripped cleaned and serviced.

The case is walnut with highly decorative brass castings over the casing and pendulum. The ceramic dial has fine cracks that are barely noticeable. It has attractive club hands covered by a brass and glass door.

The clock comes with a 3 month warranty on a return to point of sale basis.
