Item:183746304121Vintage Art Deco 1920s American Wall Clock by Wm L. Gilbert, Cleaned & Serviced (For collection in person only from North Lincolnshire - viewing welcome) For sale is this handsome, true art-deco vintage wall clock, believed to date from the 1920s. The clock is by the renowned American manufacturer, William L. Gilbert (please see the photo of the label on the back). This clock pre-dates the change of the company name in 1932, and has been comprehensively cleaned and serviced. Constructed of timber (believed to be oak) with a silver coloured dial and new Arabic numerals applied in the original style, the clock has black spade style hands, and the original glass. The case has been carefully cleaned and then finished with beeswax to a shine as seen. The front door is of timber with original brass fittings and opens and closes as it should. It is supplied with the original huge chrome pendulum and decorative copper coloured gong block. Please study the photos which form the main part of the description. Age related marks and blemishes remain as commensurate with an old clock. The dial has minor historic dents and scratches, and the timber decorated panel at the top of the clock has been repaired and refixed into position with modern adhesive. The movement is of good quality, and has been removed, then repaired as necessary, and then lubricated with fresh top quality clock oil before running on test for 3 weeks before listing here. It now keeps very good time, and strikes the hour and half hour with a pleasant gong. This is a big clock, measuring apx. 92cm x 34cm x 12cm. It will enhance any art deco themed room, and is supplied with a new key. Sensible offers considered. The sale to be completed on Ebay, then cash on collection preferred please. I don't post clocks any more as too many get damaged in transit, (so please don't ask!), but happy to answer any questions.Age:Vintage, Clock Type:Wall Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme:Art Deco, Type:Wall Clock
