Dietrich Andreas Löhdefink showed this clock at the Kindom’s Trade Show in Hannover in 1834-35. The evaluation committee expressed great praise for this clock and regretted not being able to award this work because it was largely done by Löhdefink during his stay in
Paris. (This is also recorded on the inside of the roller wheel: made by Dietrich Andreas Löhdefink in Paris in 1830, completed by him in Hannover in 1834).

Extremely rare, German precision pendulum clock in the finest quality!
