Late 19th century time and strike Austrian Vienna regulator.
This is a wonderful example of an antique Austrian Vienna regulator wall clock, circa 1880. The walnut case of this regulator is adorned with two half columns flanking the door, delicately turned finials and the face of a woman on the cornice. The dial of the clock is enameled with hand painted Arabic numerals. The seconds of the minute are also indicated via a sub-dial. Time is read with the use of the finely pierced blued steel hands. Like most Vienna regulators the clock will require winding once a week for continuous running. Besides time keeping, this clock also strikes the hour on the hour and once on the half hour.
