Description

Patented in 1883 and originally manufactured by New Haven Clock Co. under the Jerome and Co. name from 1884-1885 and dubbed "Ignatz". The original flying pendulum or flying ball clock was decorated a bit differently from this 1970's reproduction by Horolover. Referred to as "The Craziest Clock In The World" it does everything well except keep time! It operates by slinging a tiny brass ball on a thread around two steel posts.

Quite fascinating to watch. It has a one day spring powered movement.

Recently serviced (Oct 2020) when the missing ball and thread were replaced and the clock cleaned.

The face glass is a replacement. The clock is running properly.Measures 6 1/2" wide by 10" tall.
