    This (to me) absolutely stunning 1920's or 1930's German (Junghans Wurttemberg) Art Deco triangular or pyramid shaped mantle clock measures 12 1/2 inches high by 14 inches long by 5 1/2 inches deep. It's made of solid (tiger?) oak, runs perfectly and has a warm dual toned gong (on the half hour and the hour). Both its highly unusual shape and that truly massive bronze dial simply blew me away. As soon as I saw it I just KNEW that I "had" to have it, even though it exceeded my budget. Now I'll have to sell something else to pay for it, but I couldn't let this rare beauty get away because I know I'd never see another one like it.
    Been there done that, as I'm sure most (if not all) of you folks have too...

    Thanks for looking!

      Great clock and +1 for your CW login name. :)
    2. Hyp-storian, 7 years ago
      Thanks!
      I chose that particular log in name because I'm a (retired) clinical hypnotherapist, and I wrote a book about the history of hypnotism.
      Fascinating subject (pun intended), but I enjoy collecting more....; - )
    3. Hyp-storian, 7 years ago
      Thanks, and yes, the beautiful symmetry IS almost "hypnotic".
      Never seen anything quite like it- certainly not from the 1930's....
    4. Hyp-storian, 7 years ago
      Good call- the seller described it as 1930's, but it could indeed easily be from the "Egyptian revival" craze of 1920's shortly after Carter discovered of King Tut's tomb (1923?).

      Thanks, Surf- I would have gone without food for 22 minutes......maybe, but
      will sell another Junghans clock instead (or some of my wife's favorite things instead if I can get away with it...).

      Masonic? Perhaps. But if I confirm that I'm afraid I'll have to kill you (hey, rules are rules).
      ; - )

      I think this clock that just appeared on Ebay would be a nice compliment to yours:

      Arisellon- why are you trying to bankrupt me? What have I ever done to you?! (LOL)
      By the way, that's the same seller I bought this one from (same price range too).

      I'm just trying to encourage your passion ;)
    11. Hyp-storian, 7 years ago
      No "encouragement" necessary- what I need is someone to try and STOP me from collecting...; - )
    12. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      Yea right!!! As if anyone could make you stop collecting!!! hahaha And I don't even know you but...Nice try! This is an amazing clock. Great buy!
