    found this one on a flea market in Florence,Italy.The laquer in good shape,the flowers not painted but decals.A good example for the heavy competition in the 400day market in the 50ies and the desperate attempt of the producers to lower costs : the blocks of the SS are riveted to the wire,not skrewed! The movement roughly made,manny burrs on wheels and pinions , but after a thorough cleaning and lubing and with a new SS it is running nicely with more than 270°.
    Forgot : Plate 1016 I believe,correct me if I´m wrong.
    Enjoy!

    Nice little clock! What do you attribute the different colors between the dial and the rest of the clock? Did the dial just age a bit faster? I have a few clocks like that and usually there's not much I can do with the dials.

    the different clock firms in Germany -especially the small ones- didn´t produce their own dials; instead the got them form third party suppliers,some of them still existing.My idea is that either they didn´t match the identical color right in the beginning or -due to chemical differences- the colors yellowed differently with age.The decals were applied by Reiner,they are the same both on dial and base.
