Gorgeous ... Antique Jeweled Mantel Clock
Note: Drastic price drop....Discount off the price. The clock worked perfectly and now it does not.
Here is what happened...I was winding it and it must have broke a spring or something>
Because it made a little clunking noise as I got near the end. Now it does not work.
It you wind the clock it will still wind but makes the same noise when it is wound.
Note: Excellent any white spots you may see are not marks ...just light that the camera picked up.
The clock is very clean...any fingerprints happened during picture taking. show up more on the black glass.
will remove before shipping.
Black Glass Body; Front, back & sides. Looks to be all one piece of glass
with the sides beveled. You can wind the clock through a hole in the back with a
gold ornate fitted cover that fits very tightly. No chips or cracks in the glass.
This gold cover is gilted on both sides and the inside is even brighter gold due to
no exposure to air.
The Guilloche face in a Redish Orange Color Enamel. No Chips or cracks...Beautiful crisp color.
There is glass that covers the clock.
The face has gold gilt on metal numbers.
At each number there is a tiny blue glass stone. Then there are gold dots between them all around the dial.
The clock is adorned with lush gold gilt on brass or bronze.
It is still nice and bright and mostly there.
The clock sits on four ornate feet....one in the back has been repaired ...looks sautered. (very stable)
The clock part is Swiss made by Schild & Co. This is imprinted in the metal on the back of the clock part.
It is also marked 2 adjustments and 6 Jewels . (pictured)
7.5 inches tall, 3 inches deep and 4 inches wide
This clock is heavy weighing 1.75 pounds.
THINGS TO POINT OUT;
The one back foot has been repaired and looks very good and sturdy.
It was repaired with a metal bar soldered to brace it and looks well done to me.
I did not notice until I took the pictures. plus its in the back. see pic. 9
I note that the back leg is a smedge shorter and does not effect the clock.
It does not move or wobble by itself.
The front feet all touch down but its the back one that is a little off. This can be seen best in the picture # 7.
Again I did not even notice it tell I took the pictures. That would be the only thing to point out.
Notes from the Seller: DISREGARD THE NOTES BELOW...THE CLOCK HAS STOPPED WORKING.
I have tested the clock and it runs very well and nearly accurate with picking up one minute a day.
The clock is inside the black glass. To set it the clock
you take off the ornate cover and reach inside.
It is very easy to wind and sort of just flows along with ease.
There is an arrow to tell you witch way to wind it.
Also I note it is very quite...The ticking sound is soft not loud...would be very nice in a bedroom.
This clock would make a very excellent gift.
