Highlight of our music clock collection

This organ clock is the centerpiece of our collection. The arrangement of the pipes gives it the presentation of a small church organ and the wide musical scale from 26 pipes produces a very rich sound. The music of the barrel organ is transposed from well-known pieces of famous composers. In making this transposition it is possible to produce a fuller, grander sound and there is no restriction of the performing musician’s ten fingers.

The keyboard of the music mechanism is made entirely of metal. The barrel is constrained in a solid metal cage of brass plates secured with round steel struts. The organwork together with the clockwork, is located on an oak frame below the barrel construction. The bellows are positioned on top of the frame immediately under the housing hood of the clock.

Perfectly finished movement

The clock movement is perfectly finished and it is a shame that it is concealed behind the enamel dial with its beautifully shaped hands. It can only be seen by looking through one of the side doors. Highly polished wheels are in engagement with hardened, highly polished pinions. The massive frame is beautifully shaped with precisely crafted main plates and pillars. With a mute lever, it is possible to adjust whether the music and/or the bell strike is engaged. Should the organ clock be set to ‘Silent’, then only the soothing ticking of the seconds pendulum enters quietly into our consciousness.
