Seller: castle332 (731) 100%, Location: Shrewsbury, Ships to: GB, Item: 263753226574 American made Ting Tang movement Mantle Clock by WM L Gilbert Clock Company of Winsted, Conneticut for restoration or spares. The wooden case is large and measures approx. 45cms long x 28cms high x 16cms deep. It has been sat on a mantelpiece over an open fire and suffered from heat and smoke which has destroyed the painted finish and will therefore need complete stripping and re-finishing. There is no glass to the bezel which itself is detached and missing the hinge. The movement lacks a part from the suspension on which the pendulum should hang and hasn't been tested although it has ticked over from time to time while handled. What appears to be the original pendulum is however present although there is no key. Both mainsprings do tension although I haven't attempted to fully wind either (the right hand winder has the usual anti-clockwise wind). The original bell is still attached and the striking gong is in the case. I haven't had the movement out of the case but there is an issue with the mechanism at the front as the hands are moving around freely with no engagement to the mechanism. Like the case the movement will need to be stripped, cleaned and repaired. I'm not certain of the age of this clock, it could be 19th century, it certainly has some age to it. Delivery by courier to UK mainland at cost indicated, buyer welcome to collect. Age: Vintage, Material: Wood, Clock Type: Mantel/ Carriage Clock
