Seller: ticktocker2 (499) 100%, Location: Warrington, Ships to: GB, Item: 192019349088 This beautiful striking carriage clock has just undergone a complete overhaul to prepare it for sale. The clock strikes on the hour ( counting out the number of hours ) and strikes once at each half hour. The overhaul included a complete strip down of the case and movement for cleaning. Every single component of the movement was cleaned by hand to include both mainsprings which were removed from their barrels. The movement plates were both stamped with the number 66 and the enamel dial was similarly marked with the number 66. The stunning original fully jewelled and compensated lever arm platform escapement was also dismantled, cleaned and rebuilt with the appropriate fine oil. The top quality platform was stamped with the number 8906. As can be seen from the listed photos the beautiful original enamel on copper dial is in immaculate condition. The brass case was also dismantled for cleaning and given a light polish prior to a coat of wax to retard future tarnishing. All case parts were stamped with the letter V and the number 79 which suggests this is a very original clock that has not suffered accidental damage in its lifetime. The door opens and closes with a very smooth action. All the deep beveled glass is in excellent condition. The clock stands 175 mm tall with handle upright, 95 mm wide and 84 mm deep. The clock weighs in at 1550 grams which means packed weight will likely exceed 2 kilo grams and postage costs will reflect this. Postage estimate is based on Royal Mail special delivery service within UK. Bids are welcome from overseas provided clearance is obtained beforehand. The clock will be supplied with the appropriate double ended key for winding and adjusting the hands. Good luck to all who bid Sub-Type: Carriage Clock, Features: Keys, Winders, Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Material: Brass, Style/ Origin/ Theme: French
