Here is a nice looking German Bracket Clock for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
Beautiful German wood case clock. Probably dates to the early 1900s. The wood case is all there. Some loss of veneer to the back of the case, near the top. Some minor crazing to the finish, but still looks good.
We have only wiped down the wood case with Murphy's wood cleaner and orange oil, could still used a good cleaning to bring the original beauty of this piece out to its' full potential.
Nice looking silver colored tin face on this clock. Some finish loss. Black colored numerals. The clock hands match and look appropriate to the clock.
The clock has an 8 day movement. The clock has "Made in Wurtemberg" on the top left of the back plate of the movement. Also, and incised clock with wings on it in the center bottom of the back plate.
The clock has a great beat to it with the pendulum off and on. The clock has been running since we acquired it. Just put some oil on the back plate pivot points/bushing to loosen up any gunk if the clock has been sitting unused for any time.
The appropriate brass pendulum is with the clock. The clock has a wire gong strike unit on it that strikes once on the half hour and the number of hours on the hour. This clock is in running and striking condition.
The 2 wind springs (time, strike) feel sound when keyed. The clock will come with a vintage wind key.
The beveled glass in the wood door over the clock face look great. The glass is not blistered or cracked. The bezel door is securely attached to the case.
The case still has what appears to be the original wood legs on the front of the case. This was definitely a quality clock for its' time. The rear door is still firmly attached to the case. The latch for the rear door is still there and operates. The hinges look appropriate on the front bezel and rear doors.
The clock stands 11-5/8" tall, by 8-3/8" across, by 5.5" wide. The clock face is 5-3/8" 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.
