A lovely single weight porcelain dial 8 day duration walnut and ebonized regulator wall clock signed Gustav Becker.

One of the better quality and best-known of all German clockmakers from the mid to late 19th century. Gustav was born in 1819,he trained as a clockmaker in Germany and Austria. In 1850 he opened workshops in Freiburg, Silesia, Germany in 1850.Initially, Becker struggled with untrained help, but won the 'Medaille d'or' for design at the 1852 Silesia Trade Exposition. Becker incorporated that first medal and his initials, G.B., into his trademark.

Stunning turned pillars to cabinet and the cabinet being in great condition with swan neck pediments and three finials to the top.
