Comment: Very cool vintage German Regulator wall clock of the Eames era. Signed by Vaney (check out the awesome logo, by the way), this vintage German clock appears to be a transitional piece. Dating to 1950, it bears the retro streamline appeal of mid-century modern furniture in its boxy shape, but it also features an unexpected shell-shaped glass panel with heart-shaped flourishes. Crafted of solid wood with oak veneer and a two-toned stain treatment, this eccentric vintage German clock will appeal to collectors of Art Deco, mid-century modern, American Mission style, and Eames era furnishings. And that means it's the perfect gift for anyone who falls into one of those categories! Tick one name off your list today by snapping up this fabulous vintage 1950s German wall clock by Vaney!
Material: Solid Oak
Style: Regulator Regulateur <div>REGULATOR REGULATEUR / PENDULUM CLOCK</div><div>A Regulator, also Regulateur, is usually a large wall clock with a long case enclosing the dial above a long pendulum, and is noted for its time-keeping accuracy. Very elaborately carved regulator clocks are often called the Vienna Style. </div><div>Pendulum clocks use a pendulum, a swinging weight, as the timekeeping element. The pendulum clock was invented and patented by Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens in 1656, inspired by Galileos investigation of pendulums (Galileo had the idea for a pendulum clock in 1637, but was not able to effectively build one). The use of the pendulum increased the accuracy of clocks enormously, from about 15 minutes per day to 15 seconds per day. Pendulum clocks remained the world standard for accurate timekeeping for 270 years until the invention of the quartz clock in 1927. </div>
