This exquisite burr walnut mantel clock was made around 1900 by Mathias Bäuerle. It has an 8 day 3 train movement, striking the hour and the quarter-hour on a set of 5 spiral gongs.
In 1903, the German clock manufacturer from Schwarzwäld—Bäuerle Uhrenfabrik (Clock Factory), Sankt Georgen, launched his adding machine Peerless, which soon became popular and won gold medals at exhibitions in St. Louis (World’s Fair of 1904), Liège (1905) and Milan (1906).
The founder of the company—Mathias Bäuerle (1838-1916) from St. Georgen was in the clockmaker business from 1863, when he founded a small workshop, which later evolved to Uhrenfabrik St. Georgen. Initially the company manufactured home, wall clocks with wooden boards, but later specialized in all types of clocks. By 1900 the company’s clocks received several awards and the monthly production reached over 5000 watches and clocks, mainly for export.
Mathias Bäuerle had 4 sons—Tobias, Fridolin, Christian and Mathias, and at least three of them, Christian (1860-1918), Tobias (1863-1933) and Mathias (1865-1935) were involved in his father’s business. Tobias Bäuerle was the main driving force behind the new machine and in 1903 he founded his own company -Tobias Bäuerle & Söhne, to continue the traditional family business with clocks and the new one - calculating machines.
From 1918 the company worked together with the Austrian company Herzstark and Co., the manufacturer of Austria calculating machine. Bäuerle produces the raw works, Herzstark added a keyboard, automatic divider device and motor drive.
The company was in the business with calculating machines until 1964, producing the Peerless (and modifications Peerless Rapid, with a special gear for multiplication, and Peerless Baby, a portable version) and Badenia (many models) calculating machines, and still exists, but now is manufacturing folding and inserting systems.
Featuring a Westminster chime, this timepiece is truly a delight to enjoy.
