Philipp Happacher (?–), Austrian clockmaker, Vienna, precision pendulum clock. This entirely new edition replaces the first edition, issued when the Clockmakers’ Museum was located at Guildhall, and which sold in many thousands. With the move of the Clockmakers’ Collection to its new home in South Kensington, the opportunity arose for a new edition, completely re-illustrated with modern high-resolution photography.

      Note the very fine barbed hands, and the original pendulum. This clock is closely related to the Joseph Chadwick Mirror Clock in Parsons, New Hampshire Clocks & Clockmakers, Page See the scan below in case you don't have the book. There are numerous high res. photos that tell the whole story. The clock comes with a winding crank. At the time Chandler was in business, a clock was a luxury item available only to prosperous families, and Chandler was one of a very limited number of clockmakers operating in New Hampshire. Historians say his clocks were somewhat cruder than the clocks available in cities like Boston. But they were still sought-after status symbols.
