The Swiss have sustained a several hundred year tradition of clock making. This particular clock rings on the hour and a half hour and the quarter hour. It is in very good condition but will need adjusting and cleaning when it arrives. It has eight tigs and eight hammers. Because it has not been used for a while it strikes the hour quarter hour and a half hour but the music is not playing at the hour.
I believe it just needs to be oiled and adjusted but Im not positive. I took good pictures of the mechanism so that you could look it over. The case is an absolutely excellent condition and is beautifully carved in a floral pattern.The case is made in the arts and Crafts style with a flower pattern carved on the top. Not only is this region famous for its clocks are also famous worldwide for its production of Walnuts. The case is French made. Many of the interior parts were Made it to French Swiss border-and then Housed In Boxes that were made out of Walnut locally.
