Case: 24cm x 16cm x 35.5cm solid mahogany desk clock in a dome-shaped case with finely grained mahogany resting on a flat mahogany platform on applied wooden block feet. There is a movement access door at the back of the case with a paper label with a logo representing Junghans as the manufacturer of this clock (this particular trademark was registered in 1918).
Dial: The gilt brass Arabic hours are applied directly to the dome shaped facade creating the dial with two winding apertures and Art Deco solid Cubist style steel hands. The dial is unsigned.
Movement: A rectangular solid brass plate movement with rounded corners and the pillars connecting the plates screwed to the rear plate. A typical German pendulum suspension with rounded tabs screwed into the the facade of the wooden case. The movement is secured to the front of the case with screws. This is an eight day movement powered by two steel springs of eight day duration and striking a set of three metal rods on the hour and half hour with a cast iron gong on the left side of the case. There are three strike hammers. The back plate has the eight pointed star enclosing a 'J', one of the many logos of the Junghans company.
Size : L. 35.5 cm. ( 14" ) x B. 16 cm. (6 19/64" ) x H. 24.2 cm. ( 9 17/32" ).
Weight : 2,509 g. ( 5 Lb. 8.5 Oz. ).
Condition: In very nice condition with no major damage. In non-functional condition - the clock's works are complete. There are a few small nicks and scratches.
The piece's shortcomings have been reflected in the asking price - perhaps a piece for a true clock enthusiast/restorer !
Late Art Deco era, mahogany desk clock, made by the Junghans Clock Company, Schramberg, in Wurtemberg, Germany, circa 1935.
