SOLD Inlaid Desk Clock Retailed by Tiffany
SOLD We have many more to choose from Inlaid Mantel or Desk Clock, 80 Antique Clocks to choose from, mint original condition, The original dial is marked Tiffany & Co. Clock is 7 3/4" long, 5 3/4" 2 3/4" deep. The metal dial is 3 1/2" diameter. This is a Edwardian Desk Clock, circa 1910. The clock is a time piece with out chime. It has a very soft ticking sound The solid honey colored oak case has an excellent original finish which was just cleaned and waxed. The case is inlaid with satin wood, ebony, rosewood, NO damage to inlay or case.
The movement was made in Great Britain and has the large balance wheel which is not jeweled. See photos of the restored movement. I completely rebuilt the movement; it is now an excellent timekeeper and will provide years of trouble free service. The clock retains the original movement, 4 original brass bun feet, convex glass crystal, metal dial, brass bezel and brass dust cover on the rear. This is another exceptional inlaid clock from a friend and clockmaker's estate/collection that I am selling. This clock has been run and tested for one month before listing it for sale, like I do with all of my clocks. See photos.

A SIDE NOTE: To assist you in purchasing a good Antique Clock. Saying the restoration work was performed and actually performing the restoration work by a knowledgeable clockmaker are two different issues.The vast percentage of old clocks have a great deal of wear and should be completely disassembled for cleaning. This is the only way one can inspect for wear and then eliminate all the friction created by the wear.
The latest is the clock was "Professionally Cleaned", this means absolutely nothing. Simply dumping the clock movement into a can of Carburetor cleaner to wash off the dirt will not eliminate years of wear. Yes the clock may run for a few months with a healthy dose of WD-40. This is not proper clock servicing.
Questions you need to ask these on-line Bodgers, whether it is on Flea-b-a-y or even here on RL, is the clock or watch movement original to the case, what has been replaced and has the clock movement been properly restored and get this information in writing. When the terms such as "Good Running Order", "Running", "Runs Great" generally means the clock is not keeping time and probably will not, this also means it has not been properly restored. Therefore you will need to spend several hundred dollars to have the clock put right.These few tips will save you some serious problems and money.
