Germany Shelf Gothic

Catalog Description:

C.1900, German "MONK" Alarm Clock in very good original condition, made for the French market. The painted spelter case is made of two symmetrical halves that are screwed together, and the finish has some dirt and wear. The monk retains his original paint in nice condition; his right arm is hinged and with a cord going up to the alarm bell. A lever from the movement rings the bell in the belfry and moves his arm at the same time, with the appearance that he is ringing the bell. The white porcelain dial is excellent. One day movement is dirty, but you can coax it into ringing the bell. These are hard to find, but we seem to receive one for every sale. Note hands do not match. Height 14 inches
