MINIATURE MANTEL CLOCK Circa 1840 Austria
MINIATURE MANTEL CLOCK ZAPPLER
The spring-driven day-going movement is constructed between vertical brass bars. It consists of a going train only, with a short front pendulum oscillating in front of the dial (cow’s tail). The movement is wound from the back.
The elegantly shaped front has a white enamel dial with an Arabic chapter ring with minute divisions, a ring of gold dots. The time is indicated by a pair of blued steel hands. The front is engraved depicting scroll motifs.
The brass case is richly and elegantly engraved and is protected by a glass dome on a circular base, which rest on three ball feet.
The original wooden travelling case is covered with pink velvet on the outside. There is a clasp at the top to secure the hinged parts of the case in closed position. There is a recessed space at the front to accommodate the winding key.
