ELGIN 8 DAY WESTMINSTER CHIME MANTEL BRACKET CLOCK

PLEASE READ COMPLETE DESCRIPTION!

THE CLOCK KEEPS EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNS THE FULL EIGHT DAYS.

LOOKS VERY CLEAN ON BOTH THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE.

HAS A CONVENIENT LEVER ON THE CLOCK MOVEMENT TO SILENCE THE CHIMES.

THE DIMENSIONS OF THE CLOCK ARE 11 1/2 INCHES WITH THE HANDLE, 8 3/4 WIDE, 5 1/2 INCHES DEEP.

I PREFER THIS CLOCK WITH THE CHIMES OFF. LIKE A STATELY OR DIGNIFIED BRITISH BRACKET CLOCK AS IN AN ELLIOT OF LONDON.

THE WESTMINSTER CHIMES DO WORK BUT SOME OF THE NOTES ARE VERY FLAT. THE CHIMING HAMMERS LOOK FINE (CORRECT) THE HOUR CHIMES SOUND GOOD. IT HAS FIVE CHIMING HAMMERS.

THE CASE LOOKS VERY GOOD BUT THE CONDITION OF THE CASE I WOULD CONSIDER AVERAGE. SOME OF THE VENEER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CLOCK IS CRACKING. NOTICABLE UNDER CLOSE INSPECTION OR RUNNING YOUR FINGERS OVER THE SIDES OF THE CLOCK. HAS FOUR PINEAPPLE FINIALS ON THE TOP CORNERS. BRASS HANDLE.

DIAL IS SIGNED ELGIN, AND GERMANY AT 6 O'CLOCK.

DOOR AND GLASS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, T ARE NO CRACKS OR CHIPS IN THE GLASS.

THE MOVEMENT IS SIGNED:

NO. 74 WELBY DIVISION ELGIN NATIONAL WATCH CO. TWO (2) JEWELS MADE IN WEST GERMANY UNAJUSTED 340-020

THE CHIMING ROD BASE HAS THE NUMBER 201 89.

KEY IS INCLUDED, NO PENDULUM REQUIRED.
