Ladies and gentlemen, now this is a clock! This is a SUPERIOR example of a LARGE HIGH END NEW HAVEN Mantle CRYSTAL REGULATOR Clock in SUPERIOR 100% ALL ORIGINAL condition. It is a very classy wall clock in need of a warm loving home. It has a high quality New Haven 8 day time and strike movement which runs great. Has a visible escapement as well as a rack and snail strike. This means you can watch the clock ticking and the strike will always self adjust itself should you forget to wind the clock. The case is also extremely beautiful! The case looks much better than the pictures show. The case is made of very beautiful brass with the original gold gilding and heavy bevel glass in SUPERIOR condition with a very beautiful, faultless original finish. Very rare to find a crystal regulator case this fancy and large and in this fine a condition. The original porcelain dial is the original in superior condition very crisp, easy to read with a great antique patina. If you look carefully there are two faint hairlines. It also has a place on the dial to adjust the clock for slow and fast! The clock comes with a double ended key (not original but works great). The hands are original and in great condition. Has its original heavy bevel glass (wavy!). Has the original back and is in perfect condition! The front door and the back door work perfectly. The movement is a very strong runner. Runs lots longer than 8 days! Runs great with a happy ticking sound. The movement is clean, runs very well and keeps good time. This is truly a wonderful clock! This clock is one of the nicest crystal regulator clocks we have ever seen and measures 15 ¾ inches high, 9 inches wide and 7 inches deep. This is one of the high end crystal regulators. Has its original diamond crested pendulum. This clock is perfect with the exception of the 2 hairlines on the dial.
These antique clocks amaze me - could you imagine any other consumer product still working after way over 100 years! And the truly amazing thing with proper care they will work easily past the next 200 years, and much more! If you are looking for an antique clock that looks like it was cherished its whole life, and looks just about like it did the day it was bought, and aged to a perfect patina – this is it! 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 by our award winning packing department (my wife assisted by Wild Thing) to insure a safe delivery, and the buyer is to pay $23.50 for shipping and ins. The clock is very delicate as well as large and heavy requiring lots of packing materials to keep it safe. 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 very low (gulp) starting offer. I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email.
