Antique American Clocks January 2022
Winterhalder hall clock, ca. 1925. The movement bears the Winterhalder Hans A.G. Uhrenfabrik “Hawina” trademark, registered in 1925. The pull-up weight-driven movement strikes the hours and half-hour on 5 chime rods with a nice sound, driven by two fancy brass weights. It is running without problem, 8 days on a winding. The dark walnut case is 78 inches tall with old, beveled glass in the door and a convex glass over the brass dial. The Winterhalder family were clockmakers for 200 years but went out of business in 1937. $150-$300.
