This mahogany grandfather clock was made by the prestigious Herschede Clock Co., Cincinnati, OH. The clock is in amazing original condition and in excellent working condition. The arched pierced carved crest has its 3 finely turned original finials. The tip of one has been broken and glued but this is only noticeable upon close inspection. The clock has a boldly designed cornice. The tombstone shaped door has its original beveled glass with working lock and key. There are fully turned and reeded columns on either side of the door. The brass clock face has a silvered dial with raised cast brass numbers. Notice the applied cast brass décor in the corners and the delicate etching in the center of the dial. The clock has its original decorative hands and a sweep second hand. There is a lever on the side of the face that allows you to silence the chimes. In addition, this clock has a hand painted working moon dial. This dial moves and indicates the phases or shape of the moon during the course of its time keeping. The clock comes with a winding key. The works are all original except for replaced winding cables and of excellent quality. The clock requires winding once a week. The clock has a ¾ Westminster chime and also strikes every hour. The chimes are played on its original nickel plated brass tubes. These tubes are of exceptional quality and the sounds resonate beautifully. The clock has its original brass weights as well. The case has a beveled glass door and beveled side glasses with tall fully turned and reeded columns in front. The door retains its working lock with key. There are fancy pierced carved grills on the sides of the bonnet which are fabric backed. This allows sounds of the chimes to be heard. The clock rests on bun feet. The finish is original and in excellent condition having the richest color and very desirable patina. What a commanding piece of furniture to grace your home or office. 102"h X 23.5"w X 16"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1905.
