Vintage Chelsea Ships Bell Clock
Clock is in very good working condition,,,there a a couple small bits of discoloration on brass face & on wheel . I made no attempt to try to clean...worried I might ruin something. Very heavy, weighs over 14 pounds. Clock rests on bronze metal colored base which rests on wood base. The back is also all wood. Measures 14" tall. Has an original Chelsea key. Clock seems to be slow about 1 minute per day. There is a Fast/Slow adjustment on face that I will leave to the new owner. I purchased this at an estate sale on May 30th. It has sounded correctly with the one to eight bells until today...very enjoyable sound. They must have wound it someso I do not know how often you need to wind it. I waited until it stopped as to not alarm the postal service upon shipment.I believe it dates to the late 1960's or early 1970's. I did not chose to open up & check for date or serial number. Check out the other rare nautical itemI have listed now from the same estate.
