Here is a nice Antique Beehive Case clock for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!
What makes this clock unique is the large face compared to the size of the case. This clock has a beautiful Beehive or Steeple look wood case on it. All the trim work is there as are the wood wafer legs. The case has some minor finish loss and crazing across the entire case. The clock was probably made in the early to mid 1910s by a German clock maker, maker is unknown. Clock case appears to be an oak, but clock is fairly light weight wise, so not quite sure what is going on here.
Again, not sure what maker or model this clock is. The wood case is made of what appears to be oak. The rear wood door is securely attached to the case by two brass hinges. The knob is even still with it. Base board of clock that gong unit attaches to has a crack in it.
Nice looking silver colored metal clock face. The black numbers and minute marks are placed onto the face. Also, a beautiful incised design around the entire clock face.
The black hands match and look appropriate to the clock. The bezel is securely attached to the case by the hinge, a little tight at the hinge. The flat beveled glass is intact, no cracking or blistering.
Good looking brass movement in the case. Has no maker marks on the case, face or movement. This clock has an 8 day movement. The pendulum that came with it looks appropriate to the clock and is quite heavy. The clock comes with a vintage wind key. The 2 springs feel sound when keyed. Check out the nice wire gong unit.
The clock has been running and striking since we acquired it. Just cleaned and oiled the pivot points on the back plate of the movement. So, the clock is being sold in running, and striking condition.
The clock stands 11.75" tall, by 10" across, by 6.75" wide. The clock face is 7" across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
As can be expected when dealing with an antique clock, some adjustments may be needed after shipping to get the clock re-running correctly again as they can be very delicate. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. Please ask any questions relating to this matter, before you decide to purchase it.
Make sure that this clock meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. The item can be returned, there is a 10% restocking fee to do so. So, please carefully review all the attached pictures, ask all the questions you have, come see in person or send a friend to see the item on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it.
