Austrian Miniature Zappler Clock Circa 1820
Height 4.75 inches, Width 4 inches, Depth 2 inches.
A small brass Austrian Zappler clock dating to the early 19th Century, circa 1820.
The brass dial plate has a 2.5" enamel dial with blued steel hands, a 30 hour movement with verge escapement.
Zappler clocks are distinguished by a pendulum that swings in front of the dial, using a cylinder-type escapement, sometimes referred to as a cowtail pendulum. They are also generally diminutive in size, as in this example.
The swept brass case surmounted by a small cross. Supported on a single rear strut.
Side doors give access to the movement.
The case has been cleaned and the movement serviced by our qualified Horologist.
It is rare to find this type of clock in the Australian market and this this would make an attractive addition to any serious clock collection.
