E.N. WELCH ANTIQUE 1880 MANTEL Ingraham CLOCK Desoto
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.
