A most unusual month duration Dachluhr.  The case in finely figured Lochenash is particularly rare as few cases for either Dachluhrs or Laterndluhrs were made in this wood.  The glazed areas and the door are edged in boxwood, as is the pedimented roof.  It is of six light construction with an opening and key locked front door and a typical under curved base finished in boxwood.  There are stabilizing screws to the side of the case at the bottom.

The milk glass dial is signed for the maker ‘Johann Schenk in Agram’.  It has Roman numerals, nicely pierced beetle and poker hands and is enclosed within a gilded engine turned bezel.

The month duration movement has high quality wheel work with a Graham deadbeat escapement.  It has a steel rod pendulum with a lead filled brass bob.  The weight pulley is solid rather than fretted out, as is the case on later clocks.

Height:    33.5″ (85 cm)

The maker, Johann Schenk, is noted as being active in Agram around 1850.
