Inlaid French Balloon Clock, retailed by Spaulding & Co. Chicago, Please read the full description and view all photos., circa 1890-1900. Clock case is 9 1/2” tall, 6” wide, 3 1/4” deep, with 3 1/2” diameter porcelain dial. Clock has spectacular original finish, the case was cleaned and waxed and looks as good as it did over 100 years ago, the case is solid mahogany, includes original brass dust cover, bezel, convex glass crystal, 4 brass bun feet and original dial. The original French movement was missing too many parts to salvage, it is now fitted with a new quartz movement with out alteration to the clock. The clock keeps accurate time, within a few seconds a month. It runs for one year on a single N size battery. See photos. See last photos for other Balloon clocks listed for sale. This and several other clocks were purchased from a lady who just moved to Vermont from Chicago. They have never been offered for sale.
At the Drury House Antiques we are offering Antique Mantle Clocks, Antique Wall Clocks and several assortments of Antique Clock Keys. All clocks are completely original, and professionally restored, Clock movements have been completely rebuilt to factory condition, except when specified. The clock movements are original to the case. If none of this is important to you, we have several Antique Clocks that the movement was beyond repair and have been fitted with a brand new quartz movement, which are selling for a lower price. Also we are now offering a few good original antique clocks that are in running order but have not been mechanically restored. Again these are priced significantly less than a fully restored example. I do have a good selection of 18th and 19th century American and European Tall Case Clocks in our Weston Vt. Antique Brick and Mortar Store. These are too expensive to ship so I have not listed any of them on the web site. You may come by and purchase one and take it home with you. All the Clocks are on sale, Stock up on all the bargains, you are not going to find BETTER for less
