THIS IS AN ANTIQUE GRANDFATHER CLOCK MOVEMENT WITH THE ORIGINAL LARGE BRASS DIAL AND WEIGHTS.

THE MOVEMENT LOOKS TO BE COMPLETE. IT MAY EVEN WORK BUT WE DO NOT HAVE A PENDULUM TO TEST IT OUT. I DID PUT SOME PRESSURE ON ONE OF THE CHAINS AND THE FLY WHEEL STARTED ROTATING AS ONE SET OF HAMMERS WAS MOVING UP AND DOWN. IT IS MY GUESS THAT IT WOULD NOT TAKE TOO MUCH WORK TO GET IT OPERATIONAL AGAIN. THE ONLY MARKING THAT I FOUND ON THE MOVEMENT IS IN THE 7TH PHOTO. IN THE LAST PHOTO YOU WILL SEE THAT I DID DISCONNECT THE SUSPENSION ROD, SO I COULD PHOTOGRAPH THE GEARS WITHOUT BENDING IT.

THE DIAL IS ALL BRASS. IT WILL NEED A POLISHING BUT IS OTHERWISE IN GREAT SHAPE. THE HANDS LOOK ORIGINAL AS WELL.

THE LEAD FILLED BRASS WEIGHTS ARE VERY, VERY HEAVY!!! THEY WEIGH JUST SHY OF 10 POUNDS EACH. (EVERYTIME I HAVE TO MOVE THEM IT FEELS LIKE I'M PICKING UP A DUMBELL). THE BRASSSHELLS ARE ORIGINAL ANTIQUES AND DO HAVE A FEW DENTS IN THEM HERE AND THERE.

THE WOOD BOARD IN THE 3RD PHOTO CAME WITH THE CLOCK. I PICKED THIS UP IN AN ANTIQUE STORE IN UPSTATE NEW YORK, AND DO NOT KNOW IF THIS GOES WITH THE CLOCK OR IF IT WAS JUST ANOTHER ANTIQUE THAT WASACCIDENTLY PUT IN THE BOX.

ALL 3 CHAINS ARE HOOKED UP ON THEIR WHEELS CORRECTLY. THEY ARE HEAVY BRASS CHAINS.

THE WEIGHTS MEASURE APPROX. 11" LONG. THE LONG BROWN PICE OF WOOD THAT THE MOVEMENT IS SECURED ON TO, MEASURES 12 1/2" WIDE. THE BOLD BRASS FACE MEASURES APPROX. 10 1/2" IN DIAMETER. IT WAS HARD TO MEASURE, BUT THE DEPTH OF THE MOVEMENT FROM THE BRASS FACE TO THE LAST HAMMER IS ABOUT 7 1/2" DEEP.

INTERNATIONAL buyers PLEASE CONTACT US FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE BEFORE offerDING BECAUSE WE ONLY SHIP "EXPRESS" WHEN LEAVING THE COUNTRY.

HAVE NO FEAR....WE DO NOT CUT CORNERS ON SHIPPING AND WILL MAKE SURE THAT THIS ANTIQUE IS WELL PREPARED FOR IT'S JOURNEY IN THE BACK OF A SHIPPING TRUCK.
