Rare Herschede 9 Tube/tubular Edinburgh, Model 247, Grandfather Tall Case Clock:
Up for sale is a Rare and Wonderful Herschede 9 Tube/Tubular Grandfather/Hall Clock. Circa 1982. The clock's dimensions are approximately; H- 86", W- 25" & D- 16". Model Name: Edinburgh. Model No. 247.The Case:The mahogany case is in excellent physical condition. There are no breaks, chips, major cracks that I can see. The original finish is extremely clean and looks fantastic for a clock that is almost 40 years old. This case has not been refinished and is exactly what a collector wants, nothing altered or changed that I can see. There is one small area on the front of the case, actually bottom right side, where there is a small "bruise." This "bruise" is roughly 3/4" long and 1/4" wide. There is no finish loss at this area. I feel that it does not distract from the beauty of the piece, though something you should know about. You can see it in the pics. More pics are available, if needed. Also, on the door of the clock, there is a small little plaque that reads, "The Herschede Hall Clock Co., Edinburg Model, No. 247.
The Dial/Face:The silver and gold plated dial is in excellent physical condition and has a wonderful patina. The lunar calendar is beautifully painted with no chips or missing paint that I can see. The hour, minute and second hand are original and fit tightly to the arbors.
The Mechanism: The Herschede 8 day weight driven 1/4 hour chiming mechanism has been running flawlessly.. It has a strong ticking sound and keeps very accurate time. The clock chimes, Westminster, Canterbury and Whittington chimes beautifully. The sound of the 1/4 hour chime and hourly strike are wonderful. The sound resonates for a nice long time.
The Pendulum: The Herschede pendulum is complete and looks great. I did put a magnet to the bob and it did not stick, it fell off.
The Weights:The 3 brass weights are original and have a wonderful patina and look fantastic. I can not see any dents, breaks, chips, etc...
The Tubes: The 9 "gold washed" tubes are original, in excellent physical condition and have a great patina. Tube no. 8 has a small crack at the base of it. This crack does not impact the sound of the clock in any way. This minor imperfection is something I thought you should know about though.
The Glass: Paneled beautifully with leaded glass door and sides, makes this clock different from all other Herschede clocks.
The Dust Cover:The dust covers on the back and on the side doors of the clock are original and in fine physical condition. There is no staining to the cloth. There is a shadow in the picture, thats why the color is two different shades.
The Keys:The door lock key and winding key are original to the clock. The winding key has the Herschede logo/crown on it.
Antique collectors and/or clock enthusiasts will love this original condition clock that is in great working order. This clock is extremely clean and looks much better in person than the photos.
