Seller: junkhog! (2,091) 100%, Location: Glasgow, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 112176980759 Antique Sessions Clock Co. 8 Day Half Hour Strike Mantle Clock Forestville, Connecticut, U.S.A. c.1880s-1890s WORKING WITH KEY I have had this clock repaired with new pendulum replaced by Kenneth Chapelle of Glasgow, one of Scotland's last antique clock restorers, and member of the The British Horological Institute. He had this clock for seven weeks, faithfully checking it once or twice a day on time-keeping and it is certified working and chiming though I'm told it's sometimes running approx. 2/3+ mins or so every day. I have had the clock at home for a few months now and works fine but MUST be on level surface. Black slate style paint on wooden casing is rubbed a little at lower corners, as you can see from photos, but casing is overall VERY GOOD /EXCELLENT and still looks amazing with all the features of a great period piece - two Greek style lyre-bearing ladies on marble effect plinths at either side bordered by green pillars and marble effect roof. The glass clock facing is in great condition. No cracks or scratches. Brass surround is a little discoloured and tarnished in places. Clock face patterned paper covering inside has a few creases and cracks and also a little tanned. This is NOT on the glass face though looks it from a distance. Overall, all adds up to a slightly gothic and strongly Victorian appearance. Bearing this in mind, the clock is sold as FULLY WORKING to anyone with the knowledge to operate the clock's mechanisms delicately and as intended. Beautiful cathedral bell inside along with smaller half hour chime. It only needs wound about once every 7 - 10 days!
