Picture frame clock

Pictural or picture frame clocks with a large dial in the middle of the frame, or top or bottom, were manufactured in Austria and later in the German Black Forest from the late 19th century until the beginning of the 20th century. The illustrated clock from an unknown manufacturer, Austrian or German, has a wooden movement with brass gears like the one found in the Black Forest. In the image, two seated girls arrange flower bouquets. The style of presentation is Victorian. Instead of a perfectly rectangular frame, the frame’s shape with its four triangular corners is unusual for a pictural clock.
