Remarkable circa 1920s German wall clock with ebonized wood and burled walnut. Arched glass pane reveals bronze clock face that repeats on the pendulum, of a floral motif surrounding a cherub’s face. Flanked by iconic columns with a stylized bottom. Additional provenance on bottom.

Condition: In overall remarkable condition with expected signs of age and wear including minor decorativive embellishment lost above left column and some moldering lost on side upper right side as shown in photos. Would need restoration but would be a lovely chime as per provenance.

Measures approximately 27”l x 14”w x 7.25”d

Verbal Provenance: “This clock was made in Germany around 1920. It belonged to the consignor's great-grandparents. In 1943, their house in Frankfurt, Germany was bombed. Only one wall remained standing. And the clock was hanging on that wall. The clock suffered almost no damage except for a piece of decorative molding that was lost in the rubble. The clock continued to run well through to the early 1980s. When the consignor's mother moved to the US in 1983 she brought the clock with her, but a spring inside was broken during the move. She was unable to find a clock repair that could replace it so, the last time the clock has operated was in early 1983. If it can be repaired it has a lovely hourly chime.”
