A fine quality quarter chiming Burr Walnut Lenzkirch Bracket Clock. Late 19th century.
Lenzkirch clocks are considered to be the finest of the Victorian German makers and they are always of excellent quality.
The walnut veneered case has blue silk-lined pierced metal side frets and carved decoration, a caddy top with five bronzed metal flame finials, on carved paw feet.
The gilt metal break arch dial with overlaid pierced floral panels, matted centre, silvered chapter ring with Roman numerals and a separate slow / fast regulator for regulating the timekeeping.
The quality spring driven eight day clock movement strikes on a gong and is signed 'Lenzkirk AGU'.
The movement has been fully restored. The metalwork has a bronzed finish and has been left in original condition. The burr walnut case has also been left in original condition to retain the patina and has received a light application of wax. With original pendulum and door key.
