Seller: england-5 (2.855) 98.8%, Location: North Lincolnshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 272468130437 ANTIQUE AUSTRIAN PORTICO MANTEL CLOCK c1830 4 RESTORE -WORKING ANTIQUE AUSTRIAN PORTICO MANTEL CLOCK c1830 4 RESTORE -WORKING Please make use of the enlarge feature on the photos to see if this is the clock/project for you. This is an ebonised portico clock in the Biedermeier style from c1830. As I hope the pictures show, the clock has had a hard life, but hopefully the obvious quality still shines through. The ebonised case has mother of pearl inlay to the crown, some of which has been lost over time. The base has suffered from woodworm (long ago and now filled), the dial has an old repair, the glass is missing and the hands are distorted.....but the clock runs. The silk suspension striking movement is working and striking, but it, like the rest of the clock, is in need of some TLC to bring it back to its best. The clock stands 19 inches high, 12 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep. As mentioned, the clock will work once set up, but is showing its 185 years more than it needs to. In the right hands, this could move from "faded glory" to "stunning antique". It is sold as "spares or repairs". If an extra photo or question answered will help, please just drop me a line.
