Dresden/Lenzkirch Garniture Set ~ Antique Clocks Guy

"Stunning" and "Magnificent" were the first two words out of our mouths when we first saw the photos of this beautiful "garniture" (clock and candelabras) set. We feel very fortunate to present this finest piece of Dresden porcelain with a very high-quality Lenzkirch movement for your consideration. We'll let the 26 photos below do most of the talking on this one.

Physical Dimensions:
C
lock: 10"w x 18"h x 6"d
Base: 11"w x 3"h x 8" d
Combined: 11"w x 21"h x 8"d


Candelabra (ea. - assembled): 13"w x 19"h x 13"d

Physical Description: The signed Dresden porcelain is in excellent physical condition. The clock sits on separate base. The upper part of each candelabra sits on a candelabra base and can be turned. The left wing on the putti on the clock had a clean break at some point that has been repaired (you have to really look to notice and not visible from the front, but it is not on in all of the photos – we didn't want our consignor to have to re-take all of them). The 3.5" diameter porcelain dial has hand-painted floral decor matching the color scheme of the rest of the garniture set.

Mechanical: The signed eight-day, time-only Lenzkirch movement (s/n 974371) is from 1893 and is in excellent running order.


Comments: "Honey, call the decorator, we've gotta have this!" A commanding piece that will be a major focal point no matter where it is placed. Will that be on a credenza in your dining or living room? Give us a call to start the process. P.S. Be sure to use dripless candles!

Shipping: This clock can be picked up in VA or will be packed by UPS for shipment to you. UPS or another packer could also pack it and we could have it moved by one of our blanket-wrap movers (probably least jostling enroute)... your choice. Our consignor does have the crate(s) that were used to ship this piece back from their prior European residence.

For your consideration we present a
terrestrial globe clock manufactured by Uhrenfabrik Carl Werner, Villingen as indicated by the logo on the movement. The company was founded in 1870 and even maintained an assembly factory in France. Werner was the largest movement maker in Germany until 1912, when the facilities burned down.

The company was taken over by Kienzle in 1913, but we believe this clock is from earlier production, circa 1910.

[As a side note, Werner was apparently also "infamous" for selling unmarked movements for private labeling, with some of these often mistaken for unmarked Lenzkirches.]

The terrestrial globe sits within an equatorial horizon band numbered with the hours of day, and with calibrated half-meridian, full solstice, and equinox bands, and with French labels on globe.

Clocks are well suited to be combined with globes because world time is based on the full rotation of the earth once every 24 hours. To use the clock globe set the local time on the dial. Turn the globe so the place of use corresponds to the correct time on the equatorial hour circle. Local time for any place in the world then can calculated.

Similar clocks are sometimes advertised as being made by Junghans (possible sales through Junghans?) but we think that is incorrect based on the movement markings with the Werner trademark.

The 10” terrestrial globe, likely by Ludw. Jul. Heymann, Berlin, is in excellent condition. It rotates once in 24 hours via a drive shaft from the movement.

Physical: The walnut arts and crafts-style cabinet with simple carving and beveled glasses is surmounted by a 10" diameter globe and measures 9"w x 24"h x 5.5"d overall. The markings on the 5" Arabic-numeral dial say "Patented" in German, English and French, indicating this clock was likely made for the export market.

As you can see, the case is in excellent condition with original finish, original silvering on the dial, and original beveled glass.

Mechanical: Most clocks of this genre run only 30 hours, but this is an 8-day clock. It runs well and keeps remarkably good time, having recently been professionally inspected and lubricated. The movement, pendulum,hands and globe are original to the clock.

Comments: We have provided you with significant information about this clock and a wonderful set of photos. Now, as time ticks forward, we await your call to make your own Werner acquisition!
