It has a very complicated (signed New Haven) Westminster Chime movement that, although in "as found" condition, runs and chimes well. In case you are not familiar with Westminster Chimes, these are the ones that play a tune every 15 minutes; 4 notes on the quarter; 8 notes on the ½ hour; 12 notes at the ¾ hour; and then the full 16 note tune on the hour, followed by the hour toll, i. 1 toll at 1:00, 2 tolls at 2:00, etc. The case is in overall nice shape. It has been refinished at one time, revealing the true beauty of the wood, much of which appears to be solid mahogany.
The deluxe dial, bezel and beveled glass crystal are original and in pretty good shape. The dial has some light age and scratching, along with a noticeable stain near the 7 and 8 o'clock area. It is a larger clock, measuring 20 ¾" long x 10" high x 6 ½ deep, and there is a key and the original pendulum included. This helps insure that the new owner will have a satifying experience. Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem.
All sales are final, (with the exception noted below). It is nearly impossible to find one in "mint" condition.
If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is running properly when it arrives... Thats about the best we can do. We try to describe everything exactly as it is and if we do something wrong, we will make it right.
