Item:184073380419Vintage Andrews Westminster Chime Mantel Clock, Restored and Serviced For sale is this handsome and very original Andrews mantel clock, believed to date from the mid 1950s, which has been subjected to an extensive programme of refurbishment. Typical of its' period, the case has an attractive but simple double depth front, and is now in very good order. The clock has a quality Perivale Westminster Chime movement, marked with the Brittania figure. The clock will enhance any mantelpiece or sideboard in any period styled dining room or lounge. It winds up via the three keyholes in the dial, and the chime/silent is selected by the small lever adjacent to the 3. Constructed of timber/veneer with a silvered chapter ring and Roman numerals which are all original, the clock has its' original polished chrome hinged bezel, glass, and original ornate chromed hands. The external case has been cleaned, removing decades of dirt and old furniture polish, and then given 2 coats of new French polish to enhance but not alter the original colour. It has then been finished with beeswax polish to the high shine that you see. The chrome bezel has no appreciable wear on the hinges and fastens as it should, as does the rear door and clasp. Please study the photos which form the main part of the description, noting some minor age related marks do, of course, remain. The chapter ring has minor areas of staining which will not polish out, and there is a lighter area of wear on the upper case between the I and II. The quality Perivale movement has been removed, dismantled, repaired as necessary, and then reassembled and lubricated with fresh quality clock oil before running on test for a full 4 weeks before listing here. It now keeps very good time, and strikes the hour and chimes each quarter.The clock can be silenced completely if desired using the level on the dial, and it is supplied with the original pendulum and a period (not original) key. Dimensions: Apx. 29 x 21 x 11 cm. Collection in person only from North Lincolnshire DN19.
