Product Description

New in sealed, unopened box - likely the last you will ever see - a Vintage Horolovar Flying Pendulum Clock. This clock was not imported to the US for sale by Horolovar, but instead was sold in Germany directly by the manufacturer, Staiger. The original customer purchased a large lot of clocks to sell in their antique store, then later brought what was left to the US. We recently had an opportunity to pick up the last remaining eight clocks available from their grandson.

We opened one box to see what we would find. There was a thin piece of dark foam padding that sat behnd the brass superstructure that had deteriorated into small pieces. We wiped down the clock with a damp rag to clean the residue, and shook the rest of the pieces out of the box. The clock itself still looks brand new. The brasswork is bright, and the case is unblemished. The booklet 'About The Horolovar Flying Pendulum Clock', an illustrated instruction booklet written in German, and a spare ball and cord were also in the box. All are pictured above. We tested the clock, which ran for a full 30 hours.

Again, the clock you will receive has never been removed from the box.

Due to the novelty nature of this clock, it is being sold as is with no warranty.

The original Ignatz Flying Pendulum Clock was invented by Alder Christian Clausen of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was patented in 1883, and manufactured by the New Haven Clock Company under the name of Jerome & Co. in 1884-1885. Charles Terwilliger commissioned the German manufacture of this reproduction novelty clock in 1959, which continued until 1979. Beautiful and fascinating to watch run, the clocks have remained popular, and today are highly collectable. These clocks are not good timekeepers, though, capable of an accuracy no better than plus or minus 5 to 10 minutes per day.
