This auction is for a restored calendar clock by National Clock Co. T is a label on the inside backboard that is black with gold print that is hard to picture . The top part is readable but below is worn. It says eight-day clocks by National Clock Company and has worn directions I don't know w it was made but mostl likely Conn. It was made by Gilbert Clock Co. and has the stamped movement and the fancy Gilbert pendulum. The door glass is not old but I was told it is an exact copy of the original. This clock is in restored condition. By that I mean case refinished, new dial paper, (looks old), new hands, backboard secured w cracked, and is a typical Gilbert case with the excepion of the top which is different and may have been rebuilt at some time. I just don't know. I have never seen a National Clock Co. clock before this one. T was a National Calendar Clock Co. but most of them were by New Haven. Anyway I am selling it as a restored clock as you see it with no guarantees. I just need to move it on. The label in the back covers all the backboard width so the backboard is original with a couple ofcracks. This is an eight-day clock striking the hours and half- hours on a deep catherdral gong. The calendar is t and is working. The clock runs and strikes fine but again......no guarantees. The movement has just been cleaned and oiled. The pendulum is original and t is an old winding key that goes with the clock. The case is oak and has a good look. The measurements are 27 3/4 inches tall and 16 inches wide at the base. The dial is 7 inches in diameter. This is a large clock. Buyer pays shipping which will run from $40.00 in the east to $45.00 midwest and $52.00 to west coast. I pay insurance and refund any excess if t is any. I pay for packing material. Shipped professionally packaged to arrive in good shape. Payment by Paypal, money order or check with allowed time for clearance which can take several days so if you want it "now" as most do then pay with Paypal or money order. This is , of course, a no reserve auction with low start bid for this item being sold as you see it so ask any questions. I will answer as quick as possible. This can be delivered to the NAWCC Fort Mitchell, Ky. regional the second week in April free of charge but must be pre-paid per my instructions.THIS IS A 3-DAY AUCTION!
I have had a couple of questions regarding the top. I have looked at it carefully and it matches all the case exactly and has the normal age wear etc.... I think it is the original top and may have one board on the back side of the grooved part replaced. That one board on the back may be newer. All else is, I think , original. Thanks for the interest.
4/2/08 - Another kind e-bayer has informed me that they have an identical clock as this one and the top is the same. With this additional info pls consider the top as the original.
