GERMAN TALLCASE CLOCK A weight-driven tubular chime clock by Math. Bauerle - Uhrenfabrik - St. Georgem Schwarzwald, Germany. It is reasonable to assume that this case was made to special order as it is especially fine solid mahogany, with original finish. The quality of workmanship is immediately apparent. Front columns are smooth, rounded pillars, all glass is beveled plate glass. Circular solid wooden pads elevate the case several inches from the floor, allowing air to flow beneath the case. A swan neck design, six inch ball spike finial tops the case. Dimensions: 99” Tall, 25” width, 17” depth. Although the clock is large the proportion and classical design make this a magnificent piece in the correct setting. Three brass cased weights for chime, time and strike are mounted with the five nickel tubular chimes suspended in parallel across the back of the case. Chimes every quarter of the hour on four tubes. It also strikes every hour on an extra large and deep toned tube. Provision has been made for silencing the chime and strike, by means of small levers through the dial to the left of # 9 and the right of # 3. This clock has a month movement. The movement is stamped December 4, 1900. The dial is finely detailed brass with silvered chapter ring. Flowery engraving surrounds the raised brass 2” numerals. A subsidiary dial shows seconds. Phases of the moon with pastoral scenes are shown in the dial arch. Upper front glass door allows access to the dial. Lower glass door opens to the chamber housing chimes and weights.
