Kieninger Automata & Specialty Clocks
Loading...Please Wait...Kieninger Clocks are all heirloom timepieces of the highest quality, with most all made to order in Germany before being shipped to our USA customers. Kieninger clocks have some of the most unique movements, and include mantel clocks and wall clocks with nested bells, coiled gong strike, triple dial moonphase timepieces with automata, and some of the best handcrafted cases made today. Some of our favorite timepieces, which also tend to catch the eye of some of the clock connoisseurs, many of whom are also antique clock collectors, include the following: Kieninger Nested Bells Mantel Clocks, which were first made in small numbers by some of the highest end antique clock-makers in the 1700s, and have a higher pitched ting sound when the intricate chimes are sounding, are among the most incredible. Among the most beautiful are the Kieninger Belcanto Mantel Clock model 1705-22-01, with a small picture showing here: Kieninger Belcanto Mantel Clock model 1705-22-01.
The Belcanto nested bells chime clock by Kieninger Clocks plays the rarely found Mozart Chimes, which are exclusive to Kieninger Clock mechanical movements. Move the selector hand on the dial and choose between two Mozart melodies (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Die Zauberflote) and the famous Westminster chimes to be played on 9 nested brass bells. The Belcanto is a mechanical musical instrument and precision timepiece. The moon dial is etched with Mozart's town of Salzburg, and the brass dial includes beautiful filigree decoration. This clock is a beautiful presentation piece with true heirloom quality.
