Seller: nip321 (290) 100%, Location: trunch, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 133202027686 Here’s a rare opportunity to acquire a restored and truly magnificent three train turret clock, with “ting tang” quarter chime and hourly strike on three bells. Made by Thomas Farrington of Bristol in 1844, I purchased it approx. 20 years ago, without the bells. I had it restored, had a bespoke stand made to set it on together with a frame to mount the three bells I acquired and had it positioned it in my previous home. The set up allowed it to run for 24 hours between each wind. Of course, with a longer weight drop and cable it could run for far longer. Having moved to a home with smaller rooms, sadly, I can’t accommodate it. Due to its huge weight it was disassembled to move it. It will require reassembly but, as you can see, will re-impose itself in its new environment when done. For complete transparency if you look at the photographs the left hand foot of the frame at the front has been built up slightly compared to the others. This is due to a slight twist in the frame. It was like this when I purchased it and doesn’t adversely impact the smooth operation of the movement. The overall footprint assembled in CM’s is: H: 227; W: 108; D: 57 made up as follows: Stand: H: 130; W: 108; D: 57 Bell Frame: H: 97 Movement Frame: H: 80; W: 102; D: 57 Pendulum (With suspension): 175 Weights come with the movement. As I’ve indicated this is hugely heavy. I can assist with loading but ideally will require at least one additional person to get this onto a vehicle. Paypal or Cash on Collection.
