Wall Clock „Eagle“

carved, mounted and gilt lime wood

31½ in

This Viennese cartel clock, a so called „Eagleclock“, has a sculptural carved case out of mounted and gilt lime wood. It is decorated by a carved drapery which seems to be suspended on two knobs and is wound around a mask. The eagle finial is not shown as a heraldic animal but in a natural movement. The bird of prey is spreading its wings as if starting to fly. The enamel dial with Arabic numerals has a smaller numeral ring for the indication of date. The movement is equipped with a grande sonnerie on bells with repeater and a lever for turning off the striking.
