Eli Terry And Sons Antique Pillar And Scroll Clock Wood Works Movement:
Eli Terry and Son's pillar and scroll wooden movement clock circa 1830's. This clock is being sold AS-AS with no returns but it runs and chimes perfectly. I have run it off and on over the years and it always started right up with no problems. Please understand that this is a 180 plus year old clock so some adjustment may benecessaryafter shipment. I will ship via the UPS store to guarantee damage free delivery. I know this adds to the shipping cost so I will cover $50.00 and the buyer only picks up the difference so please wait for my invoice before paying so I can give you an exact amount. Looks completely original with the original/period weights, hands, and pendulum. The movement and hands are genuine Eli Terry most likely original to the great case. The movement runs great has the short drop 42 tooth escape wheel and nice original verge. The label is as good as you will find them and is one of the nicest features of the clock marked Silas Folsom & Hurlbut, Hartford, Conn. The case has been top coated with varnish at some point and displays very well. The feet are in great shape original to the clock with somere-glue\repairs but not visible on display. The dial may or may not be original to the clock if I had to bet on it I'd say not because it has four retaining holes on the bottom side. While thisdoesn'tmean it wasdefinitelyreplaced I'm mentioning it for accuracy. The finials are awesome hollow brass hard to find and worth a small fortune themselves. They are screwed into place. The top has all glue blocks in place, scroll tips may have been repaired because very faint cracks are visible on close inspection. Reproduction correct dust covers included. The door frame has the original working lock and key. The tablet is one of the nicest I've seen with some touch up and has a cool bow to it which adds to the character of the clock. Original tin movement cover is still in place on the back. It measures approximately 31 1\2" by 17" by 4.5"Buyer to pay exact UPS store shipping minus my discount of $50.00 so the shipping calculator will be way off. offer with confidence I'm an honest seller and know my antique clocks. I have many more pictures available so email if you need any close ups of anything at all.
