Seller: Top-Rated Seller kernowmanwatches (1,520) 100%, Location: Penzance, Ships to: GB, Item: 264499863021 You are bidding on a fully working 8 day striking mantel clock that was made in the USA, either in the late 1800s or very early 1900s. It is slightly different to normal with regard to striking - it strikes the hours in full on a wire gong, and the half hours as a single passing strike on a bell. It was made by Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn. and carries their trade mark 'G' on the dial. It is a pendulum clock - it has been fulled checked, oiled and adjusted, and is running well. It comes with a brass key and is wound through the dial - the hands are also set at the front. Should it need regulating for timekeeping, this is done with the small end of the key through the hole in the dial at the '12'. These clocks have very powerful springs and can be hard work sometimes when winding them with the small key - I will include with the clock a larger steel key to make it easier to wind. The dial has a few very light marks as can be seen in the pictures. The bezel is brass - this has gone very dark over the years - it is fitted with a convex glass. It has a good hinge and catch. The case is of nice quality and is made of mahogany, with inlaid boxwood stringing on the front. It is in nice condition, but I would mention that there are some marks in places in the varnish, mainly on the front right hand side which I have tried to show in the pictures. It stands on four small brass ball feet. This is a lovely looking clock with nice clean lines that looks absolutely superb on display. It measures approximately 35cm in height x 27cm in width, and has a depth of just under 15cm. I have tried to be very accurate with my description and mention everything I feel the buyer should know - hopefully the pictures will show exactly what you are bidding on. Please contact me if you have any questions or need any further information. As it is a pendulum clock, it will come with set-up instructions. I will also enclose a set of my clock information sheets, written generally to cover the set-up and maintenance of most types of clock. I will always be happy to give extra specific information if needed. UK mainland (this excludes Highlands, Islands, N. Ireland and LA postcodes - if you are bidding from these areas, please contact me first for alternative shipping) 24 hour shipping will be by UPS - the clock will be securely packed to ensure that it reaches you in perfect condition - we use new packing materials if possible.
