Seller: biltime (1,558) 100%, Location: Oakland, New Jersey, Ships to: Americas, Europe, JP, AU, Item: 264513333934 A RARE AND UNUSUAL PATENTED ELECTRIC CLOCK BY HENRY CREESE, LONDON CA. 1909 An interesting and unusual electric clock by the maker Henry Creese Ca. 1909. The maker of this clock held patents for several variations of his invention although I don't believe it was ever commercially successful. I'm not positive about this though. The clock was issued patent #3851 on February 16, 1909. I believe this was his patent model "test clock" and is a bit different than his patent. The movement uses a platform escapement and is basically weight operated although it appears to be a bit more sophisticated than others of its type. It's in an attractive mahogany case with doors front and back and heavy beveled glass on the front, sides and top. The case measures 9 1/2" wide, 8 1/2" deep and 15" high. I purchased this clock about 45 years ago at the Portobello Antique Market in London as a "restoration" project. It's just as I bought it. I never got to restoring it and it's been sitting on a shelf in storage along with a number of other restoration projects which will clearly never get done. Somehow I got old too fast! The clock appears to be complete and will run when a little pressure is applied the the weight arm. The operation is fairly straightforward. A solenoid magnet raises a weight arm when the arm hits a contact as the clock runs down. When the weight arm hits the contact, the solenoid pushes it back up. The operation happens each time the weight arm hits the contact, keeping the clock running. There is a battery compartment in the bottom of the case. Please check with me for the cost of shipping. This has to be shipped in 2 boxes (movement and case separately) and in addition I insure everything I ship and Ebay does not calculate the cost of insurance or of two shipments. I'm selling this clock as is, no return so please view the photographs carefully as they form an important part of the description. Ask any questions you might have before bidding and I'll reply promptly. I only accept Paypal for payment. I ship insured and cannot declare a customs value less than the purchase price. Condition: Used, Country/Region of Manufacture: United Kingdom, Clock Type: electric
