I picked this up today at a local auction. I paid a little more than I would normally expect to pay for a Koma, but we have nothing like it in our collection and I’ve not seen anything quite like it before. It’s quite heavy for its size.

It appears to be in good condition except for the suspension wire. I’ll know more when I pull it apart. I haven’t checked plate number or age, yet.

I’m not sure how to label the style… “Art Deco carriage”? “…lantern”?

That indeed is an unusual one - very nice! Looks like the normal Koma miniature movement - can't get a sense of the dimensions from the photos. What does the knurled screw on the left side of the plate do?

Koma did some designs out of the mainstream - they did a very avant-garde interpretation of the Kundo oval that is quite unique. I was fortunate to acquire one and put it in working order a couple of years ago. I should probably post some photos on this forum...

That knurled screw lets you set the hands since you can't get to them with the closed front. I have a small Kundo with a similar arrangemnt.

Certainly a cute clock!
