Seller: vintagewatchstores (2,878) 100%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362005540437 A fine and unusual, possibly Dutch late 17th century longcase clock 8-day movement, (ca. 1670-80) with early oblong section pillars, fancy steel work to the count-wheel striking, floating motion work to front plate; originally with bolt and shutter and maintaining power (removed long ago, but all witness holes present); and pinned to rear of movement Now with anchor escapement, but originally on verge with short bob-pendulum, the potence hole for the verge to the back plate is clearly visible etc. The clock movement requires a full clean and overhaul, and various repairs and replacements changed. THE MOVEMENT : 85% mint, with a 8-daystrking substantial clock-maker made movement. The clock runs for a full 8-day between windings and unsually strikes the hours, bell is missing. This is a very substantial and unusual movement with four oblong section brass pillars all pinned to back plate, in the early position and riveted to the front plate. The clock with gut lines and pulleys, both missing, but watch our other auctions for suitable parts. The striking train is complete, with fly to the top of the train. The brass wheels all in good condition, arbors and pinions in good condition, ready to be used again. The 3rd wheel is most likely a later replacement, on seemingly original tapered steel arbor. The bell stand is present attached to the back plate, but the bell and nut are missing. The striking work is well cut out and carved, very unusual indeed for an 8-day, and reminscent of Dutch work. the hammer and arbor, now situated in later brass brackets, it was originally placed just below the warning detent arbor. The hammer spring and stop are clearly later, crude replacements. The strking work via very early, high position small outside countwheel. There appears to be a sequence of extra series of holes for a pull-repeat on demand for 3 or 4 hammers, all now removed of course The going train with great wheel, centre wheel, 3rd wheel, and later escape wheel and pallets. Appears to be an early 19th century conversion from verge to anchor. The witness hole for the verge ptoence clealry visible on the back plate and the pivot hole for the front of the verge arbor, neatly plugged to movement front plate. The winding arbors are very short, indicative of there once being bolt and shutter maintianing power present, and the witness holes are present in the plates to support this suggestion. The front plate with floating motion-work, with no evidence of there ever being a motion work bridge to carry the hour wheel. The plates measure 170 mm high by 125 mm wide, and with four pillars between the plates. These extend through the back plate. the front plate showing evidence of several changes of dial, no doubt to accomodate a larger dial plate at some time. The distance between the winding centres is 7.3 cm. The distance from the winding arbor to the centre spindle arbor is 2.2 cm. The clock movement weighs 1.8 kilos, hence the shipment costs.
