Dimensions & Specification
A large and very heavy clock.
Dimensions: 41.3cm wide; 15.25cm deep; 33cm tall.
In excellent order. Many of these clocks arrive with badly chipped and stained cases. This has the odd small nibble but you will look for a long time to find one in better order. Often the dials crack badly. This just has two slight hairlines at 12 and 6, as shown in the large photos.
The movement has been tested and is running well. It looks to have been serviced a couple of years ago.
