W.L. Gilbert Regulator #11 time and strike in walnut circa 1890. Glass sides, 50 inches in height. 8 inch dial has been professionally restored by the Dial House with time being indicated by original niter-blue Maltese hands. Movement has unique time and strike arrangement: strike is spring powered on the left winding arbor with 2 weights powering the time side, both winding on the right arbor through a pulley system. Yes, this is the original configuration - quite unique and very collectible. A very ornate and elegant case (refinished long ago) with a fantastic walnut burl panel at the center of the bottom pediment. Plenty of carving and complex woodwork to enjoy. The front and left glasses are replacements and there is a crack in the backboard from the bottom to just below the gong base (purely cosmetic - nothing to fuss about in my opinion so I have left it alone). Overall a fine example of this model - running, striking and keeping time. I can arrange blanket wrap shipping for you (cost depends on your location). Cash or Cashier's Check only please. Can't afford it all at once? Ask us about a payment plan.
