This is a Junghans Westminster chime mantle clock with an A52 movement. This indicates it was made in January of 1952. It is quit nice shape, running and striking properly.The striking of the chime rods is quite melodic. The case is in good condition considering its age and has been treated with nothing more than a very good wood conditioner. The glass is scratch, chip and bubble free. The rear door latch is complete and functional. The face has the traditional aging, as is commensurate with its age and use. The inlay on the case is really a nice touch. The "split" looking thing in the 4th picture is considerably more visually pronounced in this picture than it is up close and personal, but it is there. It could be cosmetically fixed but the Antique Roadshow folks say "don't do that". So, I "don't do that"!
The movement has been completely disassembled, cleaned in a sonic cleaner, rebuilt with bushings installed as necessary and oiled with a very high grade of clock oil. It is now ready for another 60+ years run at life. The dimensions are 23" long x 12" tall x 7 deep. As with any mechanical clock, it may need adjusting upon arrival at its new home. It does come with a winding key.
All others will need to be quoted. All damage claims for outside the U.
Must be handled via the carrier claim process. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please do not hesitate to ask.
My buddy Harry, in the last picture, is supervising my work because he is unable to help any more. With his eyes failing he cannot see to make the necessary adjustments and his inability to hear any more, make him unable to hear the ticking of the movements. But he can still kibitz... Er' ah, that is, supervise. A job, for which, he is quite accomplished!
