Complete 8 Day Fusee Chain English Congreve Rolling Ball Clock W Bell Striking For Sale
CONGREVE ROLLING BALL CLOCK with
8 DAY Congreve Rolling Ball Clock -w/BELL STRIKING
--with Second Indicator & Angle Scale--
Here is a
beautiful mystery Congreve rolling ball
original clock is invented by an English - Sir W. Congreve in
1808 and it's valued over $10,000 if you can find one. This one comes with a matching display stand and protective dome.
The glass dome has solid brass frames. You may have found similar clocks
with a screw holding glass domes. That kind of glass dome is
just about to fall apart anytime. On the other hand, all parts
on our clock and dome are made of solid brass. And our glass
dome even has a front door, which allows you to wind the clock
safely without lifting up the heavy glass dome.
clock comes with a second indicator on the zigzag track and a
scale on each side to help you regulate the timing. It shows
second from 0 to 30, as the ball rolls under it, you know
exactly what second it is. When the platform tilts, the numerals
change from 31 to 60. So you get a full indication of a minute.
The scale on each side of the platform help you adjust the
angle. Since greater angle makes the ball rolling faster and
smaller angle makes it slower, you can use these scales to
better regulate the time keeping of this clock. These are the
exclusive features you won't find from any other similar clocks.
clock is made of heavy solid brass as well. The time shows on 3
separated porcelain dials - second, minute, and hour. It's
3-1/4" in the center and 2" dials on each side. The clock is
driven by a fusee chain movement. It is really fun to watch this clock
running. It has an 8 day movement with
hourly single bell striking. The small steel ball
is rolling back and forth on the lower platform with a zigzag
track. When the ball reaches the end of the table, it triggers
the lever and the platform instantly tilts. Then the steel ball
starts to roll back to the other end. It takes the steel ball 30
seconds to roll from one side to the other. The complete clock is
19" tall and 12-3/4"
by 12-3/8" wide. This clock comes with a adjustable display stand, so
the clock will work perfectly even the surface is not. The clock
keeps fair good time as well.
