I repair clocks here and sell one or two every now and again. Ive just serviced this and am pricing it very keenly!. Its a good clock with a very well looked after movement and the case is particularly good with high quality veneer and inlaid ivory key guard. Come and have a look at it if your interested and Ill be happy to show you around it and explain a bit of the history. The clock keeps excellent time – as good as any mechanical mantel or even wrist watch. The bell can be muffled if required and it has a beautiful slow tick that is not too loud but resonates nicely in the case which acts as a sound box on these clocks. If youve wanted to own a Grandfather clock but had thought them too expensive or unreliable then this is the clock for you as its going… well cheaply frankly, and Ill happily provide a years warranty providing you are reasonably local. Once these clocks work they rarely go wrong or stop unless you move them or fiddle with things (don’t). Having said that if you purchase this I will give full instructions on setting it and keeping it in good order. As I write this I am thinking “is this too cheap”. Probably but I get them at a good price broken and then fix them and provide warranty.
