Dimensions & SpecificationDimensions: 72cm, 42cm wide, 15cm deep
Mahogany veneered case. It has a restored 12" painted flat dial with very steel hands.
Spun brass bezel and sight-ring. Flat glass.
The movement is a wire driven 8-day twin fusee which strikes on a bell (generally earlier than gong striking clocks).
Condition ReportWe are offering this clock in an unrestored but good-working-order condition. We have checked and oiled the movement and everything is running as it should and there are no signs of excessive wear. The case is in good order but unrestored. There are nibbles to the veneer, the side doors (not seen) have slight damage. The bottom door has a lock and key but the lock doesn't turn (no impact on operation). The dial and movement are original to the case (not a marriage). The 'ears' under the dial may be replacements. Dial has been restored, not repainted and has desirable fine 'crazing'.
Cost of RestorationThe clock is best sold as-seen but additional work could be undertaken at additional cost. Please ask for a quote.
