19th-Century Musical Picture Clock

This fascinating musical picture clock is a masterpiece of horological design. The painted scene hides a complex mechanism that includes a three-train clock movement. This extraordinary one-of-a-kind work of art brings together horological skill, complex musical movements and the tradition of landscape painting to create a truly awe-inspiring musical masterpiece. Known as a musical picture clock, the work hides its intricate mechanism behind an expertly rendered oil painting. The effect is that the charming scene comes to life – the clock tower tells accurate time, while the figures in the lakefront scene match the joviality of the music. Almost certainly among the most complicated examples of its kind, this exceptional piece is perhaps the greatest musical antique on the market today.
