Vintage German Kundo 400 Day Anniversary Clock

Beautiful West German Kundo brass 400 day anniversary clock with glass dome and ivory enamel dial which appears to be hand-decorated in a red, green, and gold floral pattern. Kundo is a trademark name of Kieninger & Obergfell, a long time German clock manufacturer. Key-wound 400 day clocks, such as this one, are no longer made. They were designed to be wound every 400 or so days, so owners typically wind them once every year on an anniversary date. The clocks are known for being reliable. This clock measures approximately 12 inches high, including the glass dome. The dome is approximately 5.5 inches in diameter. The brass base, which has leveling screws, measures approximately 8 inches in diameter. Both pieces together weigh about 4.5 pounds. On the back of the clock is engraved "FRED J. KOCH", with a K and O in a circle trademark, and "Made in West-Germany, no(0)jewels, unadjusted". The bottom is impressed with "KIENINGER & OBERGFELL" and "MADE IN WESTERN GERMANY." It is believed to date from the fifties. This timepiece is in very good condition. The glass dome is in excellent condition. There is some age and wear apparent on the brass base. There has been no attempt to polish the brass. The dial is in great shape and the clock works very well. It works best when it has been leveled. This clock comes with a winding key and instructions, neither of which are original. Please refer to the 4 photographs for appearance and condition of this piece. Shipping / packaging is estimated to be $15 - $25, based upon the zip code of the buyer.
