Exceptional inlaid Antique desk or mantel clock, circa 1910, mantle clock has original finish. The design of the clock is referred to as a Onion Top. NO damage to the inlay. Please read the full description and view all 9 photos they are part of the description. The original 30 hour timepiece movement was beyond repair. It has been fitted with a new quartz battery movement. Accurate with in a few seconds a month, runs one year on a single N size battery. Case is 6" tall, 4" wide, and 2" deep, with a 2" diameter dial. The dial is marked. The clock retains the 4 original brass bun feet. Most all of the American and European smaller desk type clocks were originally a 30 hour or one day wind up mechanism, with the exception of the fine quality French clocks that were about the same size. It is a rarity to find any clock with a 30 hour mechanism that is reliable or will even run with a cleaning. Back in the day they were considered non reparable disposable clock movements. Even the newer replacement 30 hour movements fell into the same category, even these are no longer available, only the battery operated fit up movements can be purchased. This is one of the best and most unique small clocks I have seen in a long time. Very quiet and perfect as a bed side clock. See photos.
