Up for auction is this ALARON 31 DAY WINDING CHIME WALL CLOCK, C24. This comes from my father's estate and belonged to my grandmother who purchased it in the late 1970s. It comes with winding key, perfect finial and instruction book. Its a great looking piece and a wonderful example of Asian craftsmanship. The cabinet/case seems to have a hand rubbed finish. The glass door is embellished with 2 stenciled peacocks facing each other. The clock face has some intricate metal scroll work in a triangular fashion, which squares off the clock face. T are a couple tiny paint nicks along the back edge, which would be unnoticeable when hanging on the wall. T are 2 nicks on the left side of the clock at the top, just need re-staining. I remember it working on the wall years ago. I tried to get it working with winding, which recoiled. I took it to the clock shop in town, without looking in the back and just trying to wind it, he said the spring is sprung. So, it is sold as is and I don't know anymore about its potential to operate. Dimensions: 25"H x 12"W x 5 1/4"D. I would think that some handy clock person could whip this into working order and have a beautiful timepiece to display. I remember the chime tones were very nice.
