This is a safe or bank vault time lock by Consolidated Time-Lock Co. from the early 1880s. It is a twin-movement version with chronometer movements by E. Howard of Boston. They are numbered 3128, and the case is numbered 3128 and 533. It also has the connecting arm which is rarely found....this too is numbered 3128. Both movements do work although I can not gurantee how well as I don't want to adjust the hands. The enameled dials are in good condition with no cracks. They are divided 0-46 and one has a patent date of 1876. The nickel plated brass case is covered in engine-turned decoration. The plating is in good condition, just a little dull, but with no corrosion. There are some scratches and dings however, but no more than would be expected. The door has patent dates from 1876 through 1880. The glass in the door is cracked. It measures 4 3/4 x 5 x 2 1/2 inches.
I apologize if the images appear blurry, but these things are a pain to photograph. So, please feel free to ask any and all questions you may have.
It will be shipped insured.
