The brass around the glass was cleaned and adds charm to the face. Glass is in excellent condition. The five chiming rods are in very good condition and make rich sound tones.
The key is new and works for winding/adjusting the clock; we also added a larger key for ease of winding. The pendulum bob/weight is original with the clock displaying the "S" for Sessions, in gold color.
We installed a new pendulum extension rod for accurate time keeping.
