This delightful clock, set in a dark mahogany case features an 8 day movement and enamelled dial. Striking on the hour and half hour, it is thought to date back to the early 19th Century. Dial diameter 12.5cm. Vienna Regulator clocks were mainly produced between 1800 and 1900.
The first Vienna regulators were made in the Empire period between 1804 and 1814, in the city of Vienna in Austria, in a lantern style (Laterndluhr), during the empire period the cases were restrained in design, often with inlay and satinwood banding. The next period for the Viennese regulator was the Biedermeier period (1815 - 1860).
The early Biedermeier clocks were very simple with straight wooden lines, with glazed doors and sides. As time progressed the cases became more curved with trim or carvings to the doors, carve pediments and carved work to the bottom of the case. The dials were porcelain or glass with an engine or rope turned bezel which progressed to a more ornate pie crust bezel by 1830 - 1835. The weights and pendulum were plain brass and the pendulum rod was wooden. The movements were predominantly single weight timepiece clocks or three weight movements, Grande Sonnerie striking on coiled gongs.
The next period was the Transitional/Serpentine period 1860 - 1870, the clocks of this period were more ornate with curves and finials, the dials were two piece porcelain with chapter ring inserts.
After 1870 the Vienna Regulator became very ornate and they were made in German factories by for example Lenzkirch a Black forest company.
