It has a very complicated (signed New Haven) movement that appears mechanically sound and complete. It ticks for a short period of time, and the chime and strike trains appear to work, but are sluggish and out of sync. As mentioned, these beehive style New Haven Westminster Chime clocks are scarce to find. 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 dial, bezel and beveled glass crystal are aged but in good condition. Most clock glass this old will have at least some light scratching.
This clock comes complete with a key and the original pendulum. Please check our other listings as we have come across a few of these recently. The other one we have listed right now is a tambour style.
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...
