I completed the work on the windchest and adjusted both the valves and the springs on the bellows. I also recovered the windchest with the traditional marble paper which is an exact match to the original paper.

This is a very early Jakob Baurele clock circa 1858 which has a primitive charge as it is one of the first trumpeter clocks ever created. The great feature of this clock is its exposed and animated trumpeter figure who on the hour raises his trumpet to his mouth and turns side to side as he plays the charge.
