Belgian Musical Tall Case Clock

This extremely rare and complex tall case clock  combines both timekeeping and musicality. The stately, hand carved oak case features an unknown ecclesiastical figure on top. The dial contains a pewter chapter ring with both Roman and Arabic numerals. Additionally, the clock face features finely chased brass spandrels as well as an engraved hunt scene in the center with a calendar window. Finally, the dial features decorative blued steel hands.

The heart and soul of this special clock is the musical three train movement. The Dutch strike utilizes two primary bells and chimes on nine additional bells struck by twenty seven hammers on the hour and half hour. An early cylinder music drum powers the hammers. The resultant bell harmonies provide an etherial auditory experience.

Paul Conrad of Liege, Belgium crafted this amazing timepiece. This clock is fully restored with a one year warranty.

120″ high x 28 1/2″ wide x 16″ deep

Circa 1740
