For Sale is our 1928 WESTMINSTER German Chiming Mantle / Mantel eight day wind-up clock with keys and pendulum. The clock has a soothing Tick-Tock, quarter hour chimes / hourly salutes.The case has been carefully cleaned/refurbished; the door operates as designed and we attached a high quality felt pad to each foot to prevent scratching on delicate surfaces. The case is hardwood with beautiful grain patterns and trim around the base. Under the face are hand-carved design attached hardwood inserts.
The base has ornate trim. The face has been cleaned, it has minor scuffs/dings from normal usage.The face is stamped "FOREIGN" and it allows for silencing the chimes, and winding the time/chime arbors. The chrome around the glass was cleaned and adds charm to the face, with some wear on the top right side. Glass/crystal is in excellent condition. The four chiming rods are in very good condition and make rich sound tones.
One key is old size 11 stamped "POPULAR PROGRESS" and works for winding/adjusting the clock; we also added a larger new key for ease of winding. The pendulum brass bob/weight is original with the clock and adjusts for regulating the time. We installed a new pendulum extension spring for accurate time keeping.
This clock is 16.5 inches wide, 9 inches tall, 6 inches deep and the face is 6 inches in diameter. We cleaned mainsprings and added new Keystone Mainspring Synthetic Oil.The German Westminster clock keeps time very well and has a very pleasant chime. We really appreciate the German mechanical clocks for the workmanship and details. This clock is heavy and well built with quality pre-WWI and WWII materials. Refurbished antique clocks are excellent wedding, holiday, graduation, anniversary, retirement, and birthday gifts. We then fill the box with foam peanuts and nestle the antique clock in the middle.
