Product Description

This is a beautiful mahogany tall case grandfather clock dating from what I would guess is around the 1910s, in original as-found condition. It’s kind of a different kind of grandfather clock, because it has a set of weights and a set of chimes that are displayed behind the beveled glass door, along with a pendulum, but the clock is truthfully a key-wind eight-day movement, which they did quite often back in those days. It just looks like a really nice, expensive clock that you can buy for a really reasonable price. It’s time and  strike, and has Westminster chimes. It is eight-day movement, as mentioned, that means when it’s wound up, you can let it run for eight days without rewinding. The weights and chimes are purely decorative, but the rest of the clock is very real. It has an empire colonial style case with pillars coming down the sides, a crown molded broken arch top with a center ball, which most likely had a spear on it at one time but it was removed. Behind the cutout glass door, there is a presentation tag that says it is going to a Wayne Richards from Ethel Richards, for Christmas 1917. The brass engraved face or dial has its original numerals and everything is intact and in good shape, and it does say it has a German set of works and was sold by Breitinger and Sons, Inc., out of Philadelphia. We’ve already had our clock man go through this lovely clock, and he cleaned and adjusted the works, buffed up the tubes and pendulum and weights, cleaned the dial, and ran it for a week to make sure it’s in good working order. All in all, it’s a really nice antique clock. It comes with a beveled glass front door that displays the tubes and pendulum, and comes with its original key and winding key. The overall size is 24 inches across, 17 inches deep, and 93 inches tall.
