Dutch Zaandam Wall Clock

Reproduction Zaanse Clock (ca 1960).

The typical center piece is the brass ornamentations. A crown displays the Mennonite theological virtues of Faith, Charity and Hope. Lion and a coat of arms represent Amsterdam or Holland. A Horseman pendulum represents the kings service. The Atlas represents one on display at the royal palace in Dam square in Amsterdam.

A “Rich Man’s Clock” was designed for commercial export out of the Zaan region. This ornate, walnut veneered, brass and velveted decorated clock is what is most famously recognized as a Zaadam or Zaanse Clock.
The “Rich Man’s Clock” design was mass produced in the early to mid 1900’s. This became the signature style for the Warmink Uhren clock company.

There is a bell mounted under Atlas and the clock strikes the hour with a delightful "Tinkle"

This is an 8 day clock and the brass weights which drive the clock must be raised every 7 days.

There is variation in the size and ornamentation.

I have 2 for sale this one is the smaller, the horseman pendulum swings in the open behind the weights.

This clock is in very good condition, it was serviced by Wideberg Watchmakers Ltd in 2011 at the cost of $350.
They rebushed some of the bearings and polished the pivots.
Inspection of the mechanism shows it to be in very good condition and I have cleaned and lubricated it.

So if you want a Dutch clock that will give many years of trouble free service this may be for you
