Chelsea No. 1 Pendulum Regulator Wall Clock Board Of Ed Nyc 1900:
$986


1) The pendulum appears to have been broken and repaired unprofessionally. The top and bottom are brass, and the shaft is wood. The top of the shaft that is hidden behind the face is wrapped in black tape. But it seems to have worked because the clock still runs fine.

2) There is a wood piece missing from the case behind the clock face. With the face removed, it would be the bottom edge of the square opening. It is not visible when the clock is closed up, and does not affect anything. See photos.

3) The pin that holds the washer in place in front of the minute hand is not original. It is just a regular pin, which works fine.

4) The case is not in perfect condition – the top door is wobbly and has loose seams, and the bottom door is missing screws in one hinge.

5) The two side molding pieces on bottom decorative molding are missing. These are not visible from the front, only when you bend down and look at the sides. See photos.

6) The top door is very heavy – heavy enough to tilt the clock when you open the door. I have read somewhere that the Board of Ed used to fill holes (or maybe even make some holes) with plaster. That is a possibility.

7) The wood might have been shellacked or touched up. I cannot tell if the paint is all original or not.

8) I don't know if the glass is original – I doubt it because the inside moldings that hold the glass look like they were removed and reinstalled.
