Lot No. 226 (95th Auction)
Vienna, Height 142 mm, circa 1850

A decorative miniature mantel clock with double wheel duplex escapement
Case: gilt brass on walnut wooden base, plumb inset, glass dome. Dial: silvered. Movm.: brass, five-arm steel balance.

A fine and rare delicacy - this extravagant timepiece on its classy wooden base is dominated by the large balance, which features a visible duplex escapement and sits vertically above the dial. The complete structure is only 73 mm high including the balance. A whimsical detail is the fly that "crawls" along the chapter ring to indicate the hours instead of a hand.
