Viennese Astro Regulator - 30 Day(SOLD)

Item ID: 1842 - 30 Day Viennese Astro Regulator by Benno Lukaschofsky. Ca. 1870. The superb rosewood case wit original finish is 74" tall, 19 1/2" wide and 9 1/2" deep. All carvings on the clock are original including the crest and bottom piece. Note the superb brass and mother of pearl inlay on the backboard. All 5 glasses are old and wavy. The 10 1/2" engraved and slivered dial is marked Benno Lukaschofsky - Wien XVIII. As evidenced by the late Biedermeier style of the case and the later style of the dial, the case is earlier than the movement. Also, the original movement was mounted on wood corbels. The astro movement was installed by Lukaschofsky on heavy brass rails mounted to a large brass backing plate which is very securely screwed to the backboard of the clock. This added extra stability to the backboard providing an extremely solid mounting for the movement. Four huge locking threaded case levelers were installed inside the case. One of these is visible in the photo that shows the pendulum. The extremely heavy pendulum bob is brass over lead. Note the neat little fine regulation cup on the pendulum below the dial. It's very unusual to find an Astro regulator in such an exquisitely decorative case. The clock is a very fine timekeeper. See Vic Kochaver's "Beautiful Vienna Regulators of the 19th Century" pages 140 - 141 for reference. Email me if you have questions.

Burleigh Gold Front Presentation Bride's Banjo Clock(SOLD)

ID: 1481 - Ted Burleigh Gold Front Presentation Bride's Banjo Clock. In 1970 after years of gold leaf restoration and reverse glass painting as a hobby, Ted and Fran Burleigh formed the Gilders Workshop in Winchester, MA and began producing fine quality reproductions of banjo clocks based on the design of Lemuel Curtis.

To quote from a Burleigh sales brochure -

“The design of the Burleigh Presentation Banjo Clock is adapted from that of the Lemuel Curtis banjo made in the early 1800’s. Like the original, it’s distinguishing features are a somewhat narrower throat than usual, and the concave molding used on the door and throat which is finished in burnished gold and therefore reflects the rope trim which is laid in it. Also as in the original Curtis clock, all cases are made of hand rubbed Honduras mahogany, with five piece back boards of pine. The door, throat frame and bracket are also of pine, the wood customarily used in pieces to be gilded.

The gilding is executed in the traditional manner. Six hand applied coats of gesso (a mixture of whiting and animal hide glue) are sanded to a porcelain-like finish, and three or more coats of bole (a red clay and glue mixture) are applied to the parts before they are gilded. Twenty-three karat golf leaf is applied over an oil size in the area to have a matte finish, and over a water size in the areas to be burnished.

The dial, with Roman numerals is hand painted and the hands are hand filed to a delicate slimness. The movement, which is patterned after the early weight-driven types is made by Kilbourne & Proctor.”

This Bride’s clock with white painted case is a fine example of their work. The clock is flawless. The gilding is perfect. The dial is perfect. The reverse painted glasses are signed by Fran Burleigh, dated 1979 and include a notation by Fran stating “Painting a direct copy of one from a clock by S. Willard.” The case is numbered TEB – 42 and dated 77. The clock is in good running order and ready to hang on your wall and enjoy. Email me if you have questions.

In 1862, at the age of 47, he was appointed Clockmaker to the King of Hungary and some 13 years later he gained a Gold Medal and became Clockmaker to the Austrian Kaiser Franz Joseph I. This ca. 1870 clock is a superb example of his work. The ash case is 71" tall. The perfect 9 1/4" dial is signed Kralik S, Pesten.

The graceful curves that join it's upper and lower sections highlight the traditional eight inch Howard dial. The pendulum bob is visible in the gold bordered opening of the circular red and black bottom glass. A gold plated invar pendulum rod assures the most accurate timekeeping possible. The two foot nine inch case is of hand rubbed black walnut. The Model 10 was a popular clock among jewelers who often hung it in a prime location in their shop."

Burleigh Girandole Clock with Thermometer Throat Glass(SOLD)

Item ID: 1350 - Ted Burleigh Girandole #53 - Ca. 1988.
Ted & Fran Burleigh formed the Gilders Workshop in 1972 and in 1973 they had the opportunity to disassemble and measure and then make the plans to replicate an original L. Curtis Girandole. The Girandole case itself is considered by many to be the most elegant American clock design with the finely hand-carved eagle finial and acanthus leaf bracket set off by forty-nine burnished gold trim balls. All aspects of building the exact copy of the Curtis clock were performed by the Burleigh husband & wife team in their own shop to ensure replication accuracy and quality control. There were a very limited number of these Girandoles produced by the Gilders Workshop and even fewer with the very desirable thermometer throat glass and superb Washington Independence door glass which is signed by the artist, Frances D. Burleigh, and dated 1988. This is the finest example that I have seen. Short of spending hundreds of thousands for one of the few original Curtis Girandole’s extant this beautiful clock by Ted Burleigh is as close to an affordable original as it gets for the serious collector of fine timepieces. This clock is in exceptional condition in every way.
