GERMAN TING TANG ANTIQUE BRACKET CLOCK BY WINTERHALDER & HOFMEIER
A very good quality German mahogany arched top Victorian antique bracket table clock with quarter fluted columns and brass string inlay stood on brass bracket feet and finished with acorn finials to the top.
The clock has a silvered dial with Roman numerals and features a slow-fast and silent-chime mechanism. The movement is an eight day German Winterhalder & Hofmeier ting tang which strikes the quarters, half hours and hours on two gong.
Winterhalder & Hofmeier were considered the finest clockmakers in the Victorian era, they came from a family of clockmakers. They were based in Germany’s Black Forest region. The company was established in 1810 by Thomas Winterhalder, and was continued by his three sons Matthäus, Karl and Linus.
Thomas’ son Matthaus took over in 1830 and in 1850 Anton Hofmeier joined the company, who was himself a clockmaker and relative to the Winterhalder family. The company then became known as Winterhalder and Hofmeier.
