E N Welch Antique Double Door 8 Day Large Original Ogee Mantle Clock 1850 For Sale

E N Welch Antique Double Door 8 Day Large Original Ogee Mantle Clock 1850

This is an EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL RARE example of an E. N. Welch Large DOUBLE DOOR 8 day Ogee Mantle Clock in wonderful 100% All-Original OUTSTANDING condition. It is as close to MINT CONDITION as any one this old we’ve seen. It is a very classy mantle clock in need of a warm loving home. It is all-original, even the top and bottom wavy glass are original – very rare for a clock of this age. The bottom original wavy glass has a hand done reverse picture recently (last 50 years) done. The clock is quite old and made circa 1850. It has 8 day (rare) time and strike movement which counts the hours on the hour on the original gong. The movement runs very well and keeps good time. The movement was just cleaned, oiled, pivots polished and bushings added where needed. This clock will not need servicing for many years to come, and is ready for the next 100 years! This is a labor intensive service, with many clockmakers charging 250.00 and up. We recommend having it oiled every 2 to 3 years to keep it in tip-top shape! With the purchase of this clock for an additional $ 2.25 we will include an oiler kit with a professional oiler loaded with enough oil to oil approximately 50 clocks with easy instructions so you could even do it yourself! E N Welch was known for making quality clocks. The case is beautiful! The case is made of walnut with its original finish in superior condition. In fact the whole clock is beautiful from the original repainted dial (rare) to the perfect tablet (bottom glass). The dial is crisp and beautiful and in superior condition. Was professionally repainted. It has an adjustment for fast and slow on the heavy original pendulum which can be turned at the bottom. (See picture) Complete with a new high quality crank to wind it! Runs great! The clock is very large and measures 29 inches high, 5 inches deep and 17 inches wide. This clock has no problems and looks pretty much like it did when it was new 150 years ago. The paper label on the inside is 100% and in superior condition. The beautiful condition doors work great with the original catches. The clock winds with the included high quality crank. These antique clocks amaze me - could you imagine any other consumer product still working after 150 years! And the truly amazing thing with proper care they will work easily past the next 100 years, with this clock going well beyond that! This fine clock movement has been completely overhauled and cleaned. The main cause of antique clocks’ no longer working is that they need a good cleaning. Over time, the oil in the pivots gathers dust and particles of metallic grit, the result of normal wear. Also the oil breaks down and becomes thick and gummy, and actually acts like glue. The result is that the gears no longer turn freely, and the clock stops. A good cleaning usually is all the clock needs to be almost like new again! The cleaning procedure involves taking the movement out of the case and totally dismantling the movement. All the gears, rods, etc., are taken off of the clock plates and are hand scrubbed and inspected for wear. The springs are taken out of the barrels, stretched out, and hand cleaned and polished. The plates are thoroughly cleaned. Then all the parts are placed in an ultrasonic cleaning machine for the final cleaning. The pivots are polished on the lathe and the pallets are polished. Bushings are installed on any pivot holes that have become “egg shaped” from wear to make them perfectly round again. The movement is reassembled and oiled. (We use only the finest German Clock Oil). The springs are placed back and greased with top-quality synthetic spring grease and the complete movement is placed on a "running stand" and run for several days to insure all is well. It is easier to detect misalignments, bent rods, and worn pivots and gears while it is running in full view. We like to run the movement for over a week to be sure it will run a full 8 days on one winding, and that everything is well. By that time, any problems will usually show up. The final result is a movement that runs just like new! If you like we will include instructions and hints to keep it that way for the next 100 years (or more!). Google “Antique Clock Repair” or visit billsclockworks.com to see what the going price of an antique clock overhaul costs today! Usually over 350.00 for a time and strike movement and 450.00 for a Westminster Chime Movement. Antique Clocks are a Fine Investment. Each one has a unique quality, as well as appreciating in value and beauty with age. You will become attached to your antique clocks and they will become a meaningful and important part of your life adding untold joy each day you own them. They can be handed down from one generation to another as they increase daily in value. Antique clocks serve many purposes other than being useful in telling time, decorative in your home, a valuable asset in your estate and above all a faithful servant and friend which will be true to you to the end of time. This clock will be packed very very carefully to insure a safe delivery and the buyer is to pay $38.50 for shipping and ins. The clock is large and heavy (the weights alone weigh 17 pounds!) requiring an oversize carton and lots of packing materials. I will gladly answer any emails promptly. I have always hated that "reserve" when I have offer myself so this fine clock has and a low starting offer. I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email.
