    Total height with the dome about 5 inches, clock about 3,9, dial 1 inch. Runs about 24 hours. Made in the second half of the XIX century, IMO.

    Interesting how much it resembles the American "Paris" brass-front clock with Botsford's escapement.

    Piotr - Very interesting at such a small size. Where do you think it was made - Austria perhaps?

    This clock was made in Germany IMO. Looks to semi - mass production, not a unique Vienna masterpiece.
