Rosewood Inlaid Lancet Clock


A late 19th century rosewood and box wood inlaid lancet clock.

The clock has an eight day striking movement that strike the hour, 1/4 past, 1/2 past and 1/4 to the hour on a spiral gong.

The case is veneered in figured rosewood, is box wood edged and inlaid and has battle-axe shaped carrying handles and brass ogee bracket feet.

The works are stamped "W & H Sch" for Winterhalder and Hofmeier of Schwarzenbach Germany.

Winterhalder and Hofmeier are one of the most famous German Victorian clockmakers. The firm was started by Anton Winterhalder in Schwarzenbach, Germany in 1810, taking Anton Hofmeier into partnership in 1850, with the business finally closing on the death of Winterhalder's last son Linus in 1910.

The dial is brass with gilded brass quarter spandrels and a silverised chapter ring and secondary advance and retard dial.

The clock is in excellent working condition. (Circa 1895)
