Dating from around 1935, this antique Art Deco Chiming Longcase Clock is a fine piece of antique Art Deco furniture that would look good in any room, irrespective of decor.
Housed in an elegant English Art Deco burr walnut case, this Westminster chiming clock features a hinged glazed door on a boxed frame and has a burnished silvered dial along with chrome numerals. There are three cylindrical chrome weights as well as a chrome pendulum and the clock is wound by pulling the three chains. The clock has a definite Art Deco feel to it.
The clock strikes the quarter, half hours and hours and plays what are known as the “Westminster chimes”.
Upon closed inspection you will discover that the movement bears patent no. 1158 which was originally taken out in 1932 by the manufacturer Joseph Kieninger of Aldingen. This paten refers to the Westminster chiming mechanism. The movement also has a Serial number of 61976. The Kieninger Clock Factory was founded in 1912 by Joseph Kieninger and is considered to be the oldest existing manufacturer of mechanical clock movements anywhere in the world for grandfather, wall, and mantel clocks.
