ANTIQUE 1896 OAK GILBERT MANTLE COTTAGE CLOCK w CURVED GLASS, CHIMES, KEY ~ WORKS
For your consideration isthishandsome antique oak Gilbert Mfg. Co. mantle shelf 8 day cottage clock with a curved glass. Looks to be all original. The face is marked Gilbert and Made in Winsted Conn. United States of America; on the works of the clock, the small brass part that holds the hooked piece that swings the pendulum is marked Apr. 28 1896.
The clock works perfectly and keeps very good time.It has an 8 day time and strike movement. The clockstrikes on the half hour and on the hour.The wood case is in very good condition with no repairs noted. Very nice patina that only comes with age. On the face of the clock, I tried to show a bit of discoloration and a small slit to the right of the number 3 (photos taken both with the flash and natural light.) Overall, I considerthis clockto be in very good condition for a clock of this age. It runs well and is being sold as I found it with no adjustmentsor cleaning attempted. I prefer to leave any cleaning up to the new owner.
The clock measures approximately 9 inches wide, 10 1/2 inches high and 5 1/4 inches deep (23 cm x 28 1/2 cm x 13 1/2 cm).
Any variation in the coloring in the photos is from the camera flash or lighting. Please excuse any glare marks from the flash.
