Antique Arts And Crafts Grandmother Clock Mission Oak Runs And Strikes Gilbert For Sale
Antique Arts and Crafts Grandmother Clock Mission Oak Runs and Strikes Gilbert Movement
Here is a great looking Arts and Crafts Grandmother clock. Called a Grandmother, instead of a Grandfather is the height is less than 6' tall. I recently picked the clock up at an sale. The Gilbert movement was serviced by Clock Doc and it now runs and strikes great again. It comes with a winding key. Both the springs feel sound when a key is put to them.
The mission oak case is still in great shape and is all there. Looks to be an all appropriate, if not original wood case. I have cleaned with orange oil, but I think a more thorough cleaning will really bring out more of the graining and true beauty of the wood. Probably made around the early 1910s to 1920s based upon the movement and what have researched online
There was no pendulum with the clock, so Clock Doc fashioned one from spare parts he had in stock. The Gilbert movement looks great. The back plate has, WmL Gilbert, Windsted, Conn, U.S.A. on it. There is now a wood plate for the back of the clock to keep the dust and dirt out which is what stopped the clock in the first place (Clock Doc fashioned this replacement piece up as well).
Great looking face on the clock with the gold colored numbers tacked to the oak face. The hands match and look appropriate to the clock. The clock is 68.25" tall, by 18" across (at base), by 12.5" wide. Sorry the rugs, hardwood floor and door you see in the pics do not come with the clock, only the clock described here.
The clock is too delicate and heavy for shipping safely via normal shipping options, so this clock is for local
pick-up, for your shipper or delivery by me within 70 miles of Wilmington, DE. Buyer
is welcome to make their own packing and shipping arrangements as well.
A lot of my customers use companies called TSC Moving or Antiques
Express that do blanket shipping (I would pack out the inside of the
clock in this situation, rest would be your carrier's responsibility).
You need to understand these companies can take 6-8 weeks to deliver an
I will also offer to deliver the clock to within 70 miles
of Wilmington, DE one way. Price would be $1.25 per mile ($1.25
if item sells for over $500, $2.00 per mile if $500 or under) for the
round trip delivery
plus any tolls/parking fees. That offer is for delivery only. If you want me to set the clock up (chime rods, weights, and leveling of clock on wall), that would be an additional $50.
As can be expected
when dealing with an antique clock, some adjustments may be needed after
shipping to get the clock re-running correctly again as they can be very
delicate. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks
before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the
patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not
our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. Please ask any
