We have wound it up and find that it runs and chimes properly. The westminster chimes sound very nice. The Nice condition hardwood case with beautiful graining has a newer finish so shows very little sign of wear.
As seen in the pictures, it shows very well when on the shelf or mantle. It is a nice size clock, measuring 19" long x 8 ¾" high x 6 deep.
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 silvered dial with raised brass numerals, solid brass bezel and glass crystal are nicely aged and all in good condition. This clock comes complete with a key and the original pendulum.
This helps ensure that the new owner will have a satisfying 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, that is about the best we can do. All sales for this type of item are final. We try to describe everything exactly as it is and if we do something wrong, we will make it right. We do not use our computers on Sunday, the Lord's day, but will answer any emails Monday through Saturday and do whatever we can to resolve any problems. Honesty is always the best policy.
