For your buying consideration is this nice antique mantel clock from the Waterbury Clock Company. The clock is not in running condition. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
Beautiful and unique scalloped case on this Waterbury Clock. Not sure what the model name of this clock is. We have never had one like it before and we have been dealing in clocks for 35 years.
The clock has an inlaid wood design on the front of the case. Little to no chipping to the wood case, seems to all be there. Nice light colored case with beautiful exposed graining. The wood door is securely attached to the back of the case and the locking knob is in place.
The wood case on this clock is in great condition. No missing parts or splits/cracks anywhere. Glass over clock face is still in good shape. The paper clock face shows some wear, expect it is original.
Nice brass movement in the clock. The two wind springs feel sound when keyed. Has a bell strike for the half hour and a gong strike for hour. Both work when the clock is run manually. The clock is not in running condition. Needs some repair attention, not quite certain what the issue is yet.
If one of you does not acquire this clock in the near future, the Clock will be going out to Clock Doc for servicing.
This clock would make a nice addition to your current antique, vintage clock collection. The clock stands 12.25" tall, by 7-7/8" across, by 5" wide. The clock face is 4.25" 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.
