Antique New Haven Clock Co. miniature rosewood OG. Please read the full description and view all of the photos, they are part of the description. This wall clock is completely restored to original condition. It has beautiful rosewood veneer with original finish, some crazing to the finish. Case has been cleaned and waxed. There are a few small chips to the veneer on the door, Clock is circa 1870. Case is 18 ¼” tall, 11 ½” wide, 3 ¾” deep with a 5 ½” square zinc dial. The dial is original. It has just been returned from the dial restorer at a cost of $95. Top and bottom reverse painted glasses are original to the clock, featuring a very nice 3 mast sailing schooner bearing an American flag. The glass was sealed from behind to prevent any additional paint loss. There is a very good New Haven factory label with some paper loss. The clock is a time, hour chime and alarm. The alarm works well but I would not want to depend on it to get up for work. This is a 30 hour wind up clock. Typical for the vast percentage of these early small American clocks were. The movement is original to the case. I have completely rebuilt the clock, disassembled, cleaned ultrasonically. All pivots were resurfaced and polished on the lathe. All the worn pivot holes have new bushings installed. The escapement was worn out, I have rebuilt it, and replace old springs with two new main springs. The movement was recleaned ultrasonically, assembled, lubricated and tested for 30 days. The cost of this restoration far exceeds the sale price. This is a choice piece of original 150 years old American horology which should be around for another 150 years if properly maintained. See photos. Inv # 2984
