Seller: runningfrog (168) 100%, Location: Exeter, Ships to: GB, Item: 323779088181 Description SUPERB VINTAGE LONDON COACH STYLE 400 DAY ANNIVERSARY MANTLE/WALL CLOCK 1969 Please make use of the enlarge feature on the photos above to view this wonderful looking anniversary clock, complete with its superb Bakelite and gilt brass wall bracket. Designed to look like a horse drawn London coach oil lamp of the 1800s, this wonderful anniversary clock is in superb, original condition. Anniversary clocks (or 400 day clocks) are so called because they run for a year between winding. So, after winding on a birthday, wedding anniversary or significant yearly date, the clock will tick away, pendulum spinning gently, for the next 12 months, until needing winding again. This clock offers use as either a mantle clock, or with its lovely wall bracket, as a wall clock. The mechanism is contained within a lantern shaped surround. Three sides allow sight of the movement and pendulum working, while the back plate is a gilded, highly polished finish which acts as a mirror, allowing all sides to be seen. The scarce, original bracket is what makes this clock stand out from the crowd. Made of mottled Bakelite with gilded fittings, it is adjustable for height and also to level the clock on the wall. Like the rest of the clock, it is in lovely, undamaged condition. Condition: the clock was made in July 1968 (stamped to the rear of the movement) by the renowned German clock making company of Schatz. It is fully working, keeping good time, with an almost silent tick. The 4 ball pendulum oscillates with a wonderful, slow, steady action....mesmerising. The only real concession to its 50 years is some discolouration to the brass "roof", which could easily be polished if required, but takes nothing away from a handsome, individual, eye-catching piece. It stands 8 inches high, 5 inches wide and 4 inches deep without the bracket. 14 inches in length, 7 inches at its widest, and 6 inches in depth, on the wall bracket. The very nature of these delicate clocks requires a little patience to set them perfectly up. They need to be level, and to aid this, the clock has adjustable feet. If the wall bracket is used, then this also has to be level (it too has adjusters). As the kids say "not just plug and play", but if collected, you can see it fully working. If posted, will need a little attention to detail while setting it "in beat"......but well worth the effort. A wonderful vintage clock, with buckets of charm and style. If an extra photo or question answered will help, please just drop me a line.
