Interiors - Siemens Halske factory clock
Description: This large clock was produced in the last decade of the 19th century, around 1898, and used as a slave clock in a arge foundry in the province of Anhalt in Germany. Slave clocks were the standard at this time, as all clocks in the factory received an electrical impulse from a central master clock, so they were all operating synchronously. The independent clockwork which is operating the clock now has been installed during the elaborate restoration process. The clock has a hand-painted face and its original glass and metal rim. In this size and state, it is defintely a collectors item, as clocks like these are extremely rare and difficult to acquire. A masterpiece for a private collection or an office.
