A graceful Danish Bornholmer clock with a quiet dignified presence, called a 'hun klokke' or lady clock because of the round face and the filigree crown. The works are from c. 1870 or earlier.
The body and bonnet are from c.1920. Classic swag design on the base and beautifully carved bonnet cover.
The gilding has a wonderful patina, showing its age ...many shades of gold and green. Look at the photos in the slideshow below.
The works are cleaned and running well. Danish works were always brass and very well made. The pendulum is also brass. The tick tock is extremely quiet, typical of this kind of works. The chime is sweet and high.
Very good sturdy condition.
