£75.00 0 Bids 1d, eBay Money Back Guarantee

Seller: kevin-stanley (366) 100%, Location: Winchester, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 282266316135 A nice quality Temple style clock dating from around 1890. The movement is a lovely timepiece (does not strike). It runs for 8 days before it needs to be rewound, and benefits from having the Brocot pendulum suspension system so that the timekeeping can be adjusted without moving the case. The clock was running recently but has not been cleaned nor stripped down so no guarantees can be given, and because of its age, it would definitely benefit from a full service. It is supplied with a pendulum and key. The case is extremely impressive being 33cms high by 21 wide by 13 deep. It is made of black marble (Belgian slate) and is in the impressive style of a temple which was very popular in the late Victorian era. Deep inscribed corner and base decorations are highlighted in gold. It also incorporates inset panels of green variaged marble and has brass decorations to the side and top to make it a very special, high quality item. The dial, which is black marble too, and of the two piece type, has deeply engraved roman numerals highlighted with gold, with the retailers name (Campbell) is still visible. This is covered by a brass bezel which contains thickly beveled glass. It has come through its one hundred and twenty years of marking the time with minimal damage and although there are one or two small chips these do not detract from its impressive appearance. All in all, a beautiful quality item which will fit into and brighten any home The bad news is that collection has to be from Winchester Hampshire only.However, there is lots of other horological stuff here and any collector may find a dial, a glass, spare part or movement that they need. Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding! Every effort is taken to describe the item correctly. Please browse through the detailed photos, as they form part of the description. Please contact me if you would like any specific photos of the clock, and I am happy for the clock to be viewed prior to the end of the auction. Condition: This clock is around 120 years old. Please see pictures and description of any defects, Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French, Material: Marble/ Stone, Features: 8-Day
