Retro German Copper Wall Clock

R340.00

This is a somewhat curious clock – the maker’s mark on the clock face reads Kienzle, a German watchmaker (established in 1822 and still operational today!), as does the actual clock mechanism, but the back of the clock has a foil sticker which reads “Another quality product by HT Enterprises Ltd, Salisbury, Rhodesia”. Either the copper work was outsourced by Kienzle, or HT Enterprises not only manufactured copper pieces, but also sold on pieces made by other manufacturers? Regardless, the result is a great combination of a quality clock movement with a wonderfully kitsch clock face! And because Kienzle knew what they were doing, today’s clock, which presumably must date to the 1970s, is still in perfect running order!

Dimensions: 36cm in diameter

NB: Unfortunately because this clock has no glass protecting the watch hands it will need to be collected in person (i.e. no courier option)
