Call to plan Vienna clock repairs.
Said by some to be the most elegant of all wall clocks the entire class of clocks known as the Vienna regulator was produced in a bout 100 years. The first were made in the empire period 18-1840 In the city of Vienna Austria.
The early models were of top quality with delically thin cases, Rosewood, walnut , maple or mahogany with glass side panels and a glass door. The dials were flat porcelain or milk glass. The hands were thin slender, blued steel. The pendulum rod was steel with brass pendulum bob and polished brass weights. Clocks of this period are rare and tend to be pricey. By 1860 Vienna clocks wee becoming more popular and affordable. Cases became more decorative, two piece dials had become commonplace, pendulum rods were now wooden and the thin brass rim around the dial. Vienna clocks at this time were still weight driven. By 1890 many different versions of the Vienna clock emerged, spring driven movements were introduced.
