Antique Tiffany & Co. French Grand Sonnerie Repeater Carriage Clock, Alarm 1885 For Sale
Antique Tiffany & Co. French Grand Sonnerie Repeater Carriage Clock, Alarm 1885
This is a Fabulous Tiffany & Co. French Grand Sonnerie Repeater Carriage Clock I believe the Circa: is1885 . The case is in a very heavy brass, with 4 way beveled glass and an oval observation glass to the top that is also beveled glass. The clock strikes the hour, 1/4 hour, 1/2 hour, and 3/4 hour. When the repeating button is pressed, the striking mechanism is the same, depending on the exact time the sequence is activated.....eg, the time of 10.50, will allow 10 strikes for the hour, followed by 3 strikes to show that the time is after 10.45, and before 11.00. There are 2 hammers, sounding on a coiled gong and one for the alarm. I hope I am correct on those chime facts it is rather hard to figure out the chimes but they do sound wonderful. Sadly the dial face does have some damage that is noticeable when you are close I did check and the cost for repair is about $120.00 dollars. It's the original face and it does not really distract from the beauty of the clock so I choose to leave it original. Below the clock face is a 12 hour Alarm dial. There is a hinged rear door, to access the winding mechanisms, and to activate the alarm. The clock stands 5 1/4" it is 3 3/4" wide 3 1/4" deep and it is quite heavy it weighs 3.8 pounds. I have a key that works but it is not the original key the original key is missing!!! This Fabulous clock was listed before the gentleman did not want it because apparently the small bottom plate is missing and he was not sure if the hands are correct!! so this STUNNING clock is up for sale once again!!!! Thank you for your interest!
All Items will be shipped within a 24 hour after payment isreceived on account cleared!!! In the case of a Holiday it may take a bit longer!!! Only Looks At The Star Ratings response Means Nothing To Them!!!! Good response is nice but if you beat me up on the star rating that's where the damage to a seller comes from!!!!!! If you lose the small sellers like me that made a great place to find cool and different stuff you might as well shop at Walmart! but don't expect to find anything remotely Victorian!! The small sellers are the hunters & gatherers the guy selling 5000 of the same item is not!!! So please try to be somewhat kind because sadly it's really easy to hurt us with those star ratings!!!Thank you Tom
