Massive HERSCHEDE Westminster Stike Mantle Clock

is one of the earlier really well built HERSCHEDE Westminster Quarter Hour Striking Clocks in a Mahogoany case. This just came from an estate w it sat on a mantle for years not being used by an elderly lady.

The case has an excellent unboken dry original finish with very fine alligatoring evenly dispured throughout. It is 21 1/2" wide by 10 1/4 inches tall. It will clean up real nice with some French Polishing.

The 6 1/4" Dial is in beautiful original condition, it needs nothing. The Brass Bezel has perfect original Beveled Glass.

It has the HERSCHES GRAND PRIZE Bronze Tag on the back.

The movment is dry, it runs but needs beat adjustment. The Stike works, but when it wants too, it's sluggish. The movment really needs to be cleaned and lubricated.

This clock needs one part. I noticed one of the Chime Rods is missing, it must have fallen out from the block years ago and been misplaced as I don't see it inside the case.
