Seller: nippa53 (205) 100%, Location: Sowerby Bridge, Ships to: GB, Item: 193198180777 This is an attractive clock for restoration. Most parts are there, and this will be a very pleasing clock after moderate work. It had been stored on top of a wardrobe for years, but a fall had resulted in damage. The top case moulding sustained damage, and the right side piece has split and come off. The door has attractive fluted columns and turnings, which are in good condition. The door glass was broken, so I have disposed of it .Happily the side glasses are in tact. The door arch piece is loose, but in tact. The hinges were broken and the hooks are missing. The central roundel at the bottom of the door is loose. The pediment seems to have sustained the most damage, having come apart,and the smaller turnings and other bits are missing. The moulded base has come apart too, though the large fluted front and left side are still in place. The right side small moulding is missing. The front of the base has an inscribed presentation plate. The clock had been given as a wedding present in 1900. The movement has surface dirt and light verdigris, which looks worse in the photos. The steel arbors are not rusty and the pinions seem good. Obviously the movement needs thorough cleaning, and new lines. The seconds hand is missing, but apart from a dent on the top of the surround, the dial is in good condition. The pendulum suspension is missing. I had to source two old weights, though one bottom brass disc is missing.No Key. A worthwhile project. For safety the movement will be sent in a separate box. Collection in person possible. UK ONLY SALE. On 08-Nov-19 at 12:31:12 GMT, seller added the following information: The main case body measures approx. 92cm.x44cm. Pediment 13.5cm tall, and the dial measures 21cm. over the surround. Two of the movement - fixing pegs on the dial back have come loose,(as can be seen in a photo),but should solder back in place OK. Obviously the package size given is for the larger case box only. As stated the dial and movement will be sent in another box. Condition: Attractive wall clock needing general restoration. Clock case has some damage, and movement requires cleaning., Age: 1900, Material: Walnut veneers, Type: Vienna Regulator, Sub-Type: Twin Weight , 8-Day, Brand: Gustav Becker, Clock Type: Vienna Wall Clock
