Product Description

New in the box, 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 this box and the clock is in new never used condition.  There is some wear from being stored all these years.  I see a few scuffs on the bottom of the clocks finish and the dial has slightly become unglued.  The brass still looks shiny and new.

 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. 

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.
