FOR AUCTION IS this Wonderful Very Large FANCY WELCH MANTEL CLOCK (w original Key). this is an Exceptionally Large Welch clock as Welch models go. I have researched Welch clocks for a while, and many of the traditional welch clocks are a bit smaller & more common, I have been unable to find this exact one in this extra large Mantel size, so I think it is a fairly rare Welch Model. think it is from the late 1800s. I have been told by an ebayer it is an Ingraham clock movement & Case & it is called Desoto but probably a Welch Dial.

Clock is in a wonderful Gild Decorated Heavy Dark Black Wood Case. Manufactured E.N. Welch Mfc Co. Sides have Original Heavy Gild Lion Heads that are in nice condition & Heavy gild feet that are also in nice condition. Clock is decorated with Gilded decorations. Clock Has a dial with Fancy Numbers & has a Glass Cover that opens & closes on top of the dial. T is an Original key that comes with this clock (see picture). This clock works & seems to keep good time...but it stops from time to time & once it is moved it begins again. it appears to chime with a gong on the hour. I do not know too much about this clock, so I am trying to be as detailed as I can. it is gorgeous & Beautifully Ornate. It measures: 18"side to side x 11" tall x 5 1/8" depth

Please note:** t is a wood back which is a piece that slides in and out, i took it off to get a good picture of the back of the clock. it actually hooks in & stays. also note** the closup of the clock face has Glare from the camera flash, the clock face all the numbers are clear & distinct and visible, in the picture the glare

CONDITION: The case has some marks on the surface & some wear on the wood - t is a middle column beam missing on the middle on the left side. The Glass piece needs adjusting as it is a bit difficult to close over the clock face. for an over 100 year old clock It is pretty Wonderful. Probably needs a good once over restoration AND A gold tube to restore the column on the left. As Is auction. Enjoy & Have Fun!!!

NOTE: PLEASE NOTE that the drop down shipping quote is INCORRECT. I still need to box this to get an adequate shipping quote. if you need a quote please e-mail me and I will take the time to bubble this up & get it packed to get you a good shipping quote since it is quite heavy.
