When my daughter gifted this fleamarket clock find to me, the case was missing several parts including the half columns on each side of the door, the finials on the bottom and the top pediment had to be replaced. The movement was non-working with at least 40+ years of dirt and grime on it, and the pendulum bob graphic was missing. It is a 1910 Junghans with an original celluoid (heavily crazed) dial face that I elected to keep, rather than replace. I made the missing pieces, glued and refinished the box section as well as the wormy walnut top and bottom pieces, and serviced the movement. It now hangs in my kitchen and keeps accurate time compared to my computer. This is the fourth vienna regulator style that I have had to restore.
