I have recently had an inquiries about warranty so I'm adding this
statement to make it entirely clear. This clock is 140+ years old. I
make absolutely no warranty as to its ability and or duration other then this: it runs well right now, and looks to be in good shape and in my educated opinion its good to go..
. I will also be making dated videos of all the clocks before they
ship, from now on, to ensure that they can be shown in any given
situation, without a doubt, that it was in good running order as stated when I shipped it:Beyond that I offer absolutely no warranty!!! no returns, and no guarantee.
this is a historically significant antique clock, It is also a
functioning piece of artwork. if you are looking for a daily runner, with a warranty,
perhaps Walmart might fill your needs a little better. I would never
procure a clock like this and run it every day. This (TO ME) is
tantamount to finding and buying an all original Model-T Ford antique
truck, in beautiful ALL ORIGINAL condition, and then using it to Hall
mulch, stone, do landscaping and
hauling, firewood, gather groceries, haul the kids, and commute to work in it
every :) not likely, but to each his own. thanks for offerding. I Will gladly offer to cancel any offers, by any members, on these sales if you wish,. no hard feelings. all of my future sales will state this precisely.
