Papierfabrik Dreiwerden

The original factory was built after the land was acquired by Franz Eduard Weidenmüller in 1887, he constructed the large paper mill between 1906-1907 and was opened as paper mill FE Weidenmülle. The factory was so large it even had it's own railway track leading directly to it as well as workers houses built up around. The factory became VEB Government owned business during the days of the GDR and was still used as a sawmill up until it's complete closure in 2017.

Condition Report

Each clock has been fitted with a new high torque AA battery quartz motor, the casings and dials will show signs of cosmetic wear in the form of cips, dents, rust spots and some crazing to the paint.

As with all of our products this product is an original piece and has lived a life before it arrived at Otto's HQ. It has been sympathetically restored by the Otto's team to ensure it has a life for many more years to come. All of our products will show signs of patina and cosmetic wear, this we believe is what gives our products their unique charm. If you have any further questions regarding the condition of this product or any others please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
