Original Antique Waterbury "cairo" Wall Clock-amazing Large Clock From 1914 For SaleWATERBURY CAIROca.1914
A beautiful find! I have never seen a more beautiful example of the CAIRO anywhere!! This model clock is seldom offered for sale and extremely scarce in any condition! I am pleased to offer this one today to the highest buyer!
Listed in Tran Duy Ly's book, WATERBURY CLOCKS & WATCHES, page 200, it was valued at $2000 in Mr. Ly's 2001 price guide...undoubtedly a price calculated due to the CAIRO's large size, visual attraction, and rarity! I have included several unedited photos to present you actual detail of this uncommon wall clock. Unfortunately, and as usual, my camera cannot capture the true handsomeness of these larger sized wall clocks when I photograph them (average camera, poor lighting, window reflection!). But what you would be getting is a marvelous example CAIRO crafted in Oak wood with plenty of quarter sawn cuts used creating an awesome charm in display. With the exception of the two upper finials, which are correctly color matched and suitable replacements, everything else appears to be original to the clock, including the seasoned cabinet finish and remarkably wavy door glass.The CAIRO is a Time-Only original with a basic run time of 8 day duration but has consistently run longer hanging on my home wall. With no distracting hourly strike or chime, this antique time piece has always been one of my favorites and is perfectly suited for any room of the house or office, as all that is heard is the rhythmic and soothing TIC-TOC beat of the escapement as it keeps time. The movement is original signed WATERBURY and runs beautifully. Complete with original dial, hands, heavy bulls eye pendulum bob and stick, signed WATERBURY beat scale, full WATERBURY black label located below the beat scale, original cabinet finish and door glass, AND incredible original labels on the cabinet backside, this clock will be delivered to you complete with winding key. And as with me, the CAIRO will quickly become one of the favored displays in your home. Guaranteed!! Please view the pics and email me if any questions.
Overall dimensions are an impressive42" tall by 17 1/2" wideand a mere 5" deep.
