Antique Chiming New Haven Clock "triton":
Solid walnut kitchen/ mantel /parlor clock. Has the original eight day movement which has been cleaned and oiled. It runs very well and is very accurate. Key and pendulum are, of course, are included, not the bell. This beautiful clock chimes a deep, yet mellow tone to count the hour and half hour. The dial has been replaced with a very nice custom made heavy gloss paper dial with the New Haven logo, not readily available. The door glass is the original reverse painted black and gold design in good condition with only a few scuffs after over 130 years, did I mention the brass dial rim is stamped "pat. Feb 1879". The heavy case has had a few repairs and been refinished to maintain the wonderful look and feel of this great clock. Dimensions are 22H x 15W x 5D. As with all clocks of this era of detail and intricacy it will only increase in value as they diminish in availability. To sell a special antique such as this is not always by choice, and as always, this timepiece in the great condition it is for the time it has been around is being sold "as is", please use the pictures as part of the description. I hope that it will find it's way to a caring home to be cherished and enjoyed for many more years to come. Thanks for looking, Tom
