Four-hundred Day Anniversary Clock
Sculpture - Wood
This is an interesting addition to my collection. I had the movement but the dome and the base were not in good shape so I made this case out of black walnut. The movement is AUG Shantz and Sohne, Germany, ninteen fourty nine. The footprint of this case is fourteen inches square. The top dimensions are twelve and a half by twelve and a half inches. Height is fifteen and a half inches.The four glass sides are flat glass and the top glass is beveled, held in place by four chevrons. Since this clock is ment to run for four hundred days on a winding the back and front glass may be raised by removing the top and lifting the glass up through a slot cut into the top collar. These clocks are ment to be perfectly level. This is so that the suspensoin spring hangs parallel with the back of the movement so that the mechanism is properly aligned. This is the first one of these. Each one of these I make in the future will have small changes so each one will be unique. The feet are equipted with threaded lifts to level the clock for proper operation. These clocks are very delicate so if you are considering owning one be prepared for some set up time and you must have a very stable spot that does not shake or vibrate as this will cause the clock to not run properly. This clock is no longer available. private collection. I will take orders for these clocks. I require a $250.00 deposit to start a clock. If you do not take delivery of your clock order within thiry days of the date of notice of completion i will refund $100.00 of your deposit and cancel your order. We do not keep any stock any of these clocks. There is a minimum four month waiting peroid at present. There are additional shipping and packing charges. contact me for furthur details. This particular one is unique and I most likely will not reproduce this type case as I have changed the design. I will accept only single orders. No bulk orders. The final price will be agreed upon at the time of order. Each clock comes with a complete set of instructions and a key. If you have one of these and would like a case like this made for it contact me. I also purchase these clocks in good condition. This clock is no longer available. I do have others in my shop.
