This is a fantastic Oak Cased Napoleon Hat 8-Day Mantel Clock with Westminster and Whittington chimes. Theres a star mark to the movement that looks like the Junghans mark registered in 1882 but without the J to the centre so not sure if this is a Junghans. Ive found no evidence any other clockmaker used that symbol on their movements or registered that mark.
The clock is in great working order, Westminster or Whittington chimes can be heard on the quarter and half hours, varying in length dependant on the time, with the hourly chime on the hour in addition. The chimes can switch between the two or can be turned off with the lever on the front facia.
However, the chimes do go out of snyc if the time is adjusted manually and the hands moved too quickly but is usual for these types of clocks, so care must be taken when setting up the correct time. The clock is currently running with the chimes in sync. The original key is included.
The clock case is made of Oak and theres a beautiful carving around the bottom. The face is showing some signs of wear with some of the numbering rubbed off.
The case is 41.5cm wide, 17.5cm deep and 23.5cm high. We have many other collectable items for sale at affordable prices, please feel free to take a look.
