An Antique Blue and White Enamel Pipe Clock or Chimney Clock

& what it is worth

Made by the Hamburg American Clock Company in Germany, this blue and white, antique chimney clock (pipe clock) has an noteworthy story.

In Europe, during the summer, pot bellied furnace stoves were moved out of living rooms to create more room for family and guests. The hole, where the stove pipe had been, let critters into homes, so people "plugged" the hole with clocks. These were a pretty wall decoration during the warm months and easy to remove once winter came around again. After the invention of pipe-less stove and furnaces, these clocks were no longer manufactured; therefore, there is a very specific time in history that these were used.

The images on this clock show a Dutch village scene with a windmill, sailboats on a canal and people walking along the water's edge. The clock comes with a brass pendulum and a key to wind it up. The face of the clock is in excellent condition. The hands are are metal. The mechanical parts (inside) need to be cleaned.

Note: This item is not a common find. Last spring a local antique restorer attended an clock show, which had over 200 dealers in attendance. Only one dealer had a chimney (or a pipe) clock.

Dimensions:
Diameter: 8.5 inches
Depth: 2.5 inches
