Here is a great Antique German Bracket Clock for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
Beautiful German mahogany case clock here. The maker is CAC of Germany. The clock's back plate of the movement has CAC Co and a triangle impressed on the bottom middle. This clock dates to the early 1900s. Unique movement in that it has 4 strike hammers and rods on the one side of the movement. Then another strike hammer and rod for the hour strike on the right side of the movement.
The wood case is all there. Shows some minor finish loss most notably along the corner edges, still looks good. Nice columns on front corners. Great curved top on the clock case. Beveled glass in the front wood door, no cracks or blistering.
Nice detailing to the mahogany case on the front, sides and especially the top of it. Has a dard brownish black stain to it. The rear door is securely attached to the case.
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 face on this clock. Silver colored ring with black numbering, some minor finish loss. Then an back piece that is gold and has a beautiful incised design on it. The clock hands match and look appropriate to the clock. The hands to turn the chime on and off works as does the time adjustment component. Both of the adjustment hands are in place.
Great looking 8 day brass movement on this clock. The clock movement has a great beat to it with the pendulum off and on it. Nice brass pendulum bob that has some weight to it.
The clock movement has been running, striking, and chiming since we acquired the clock. Just cleaned the pivot points and bushings and oiled them. Five strike rods and hammers are in good shape. The three wind springs feel sound when keyed. This clock is in running, striking and chiming condition. The clock will come with a wind key.
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 and rear doors.
The clock stands 16-7/16" tall, by 11-3/8" across, by 8-3/8" wide. The clock face is 6" across. This is a very heavy clock, so expect the shipping costs to reflect that. You will not find such a fine example of this clock maker's work available very often, so do not miss this one. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
The pictures providedboth complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description.
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.
Don't be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions! You can also pick this clock up in Wilmington, DE should you not want to have the clock shipped to you. The clock may be partially disassembled to be more safely shipped to you. So, expect some reassembly.
