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, 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.
