This clock is being sold "as-is" with regard to any subjective opinion or words used for search term purposes within the listing title. This is a beautiful, ornate, gold-tone and marble clock that seems to me to be of a "French style." I purchased it, on a whim, at an estate auction just because of its appearance. If nothing else, it'd make for a great decorative piece on someone's shelf. The clock is 10" tall and is 3 5/8" wide by 2 7/8" deep. All measurements are "at the maximum." It's very solid for its relative small size, weighing nearly 2 lbs., 4 oz. The only marking that I can find is on the back of the clock: Anchor Brand Warranted. I found a strikingly similar clock that indicated that it was a "Waterbury Clock for Anchor Silverplate Co." But again, this one only says, Anchor Brand Warranted. I suspect that the gold colored metal portion is made of brass. I believe that this clock is an antique, and that it is from the 1800's; however, I do not have any independent knowledge / confirmation of that. My speculation is based on another's statements about a similar clock. This clock does not work. The knob to turn the clock hands is missing and the winding mechanism is not functioning properly. As such, it is being sold for parts or repair or for decorative purposes only. While I don't see any evidence of repair to the brass portions of this clock, I do note a repair to the marble base as seen in one or more of the images. The clock face actually feels like a plexiglass-like material as opposed to glass. I suspect that it is a replacement for a previously broken glass. There is a bolt on the bottom of the clock that is longer than the clock feet are. Because of this, the bolt hits the table that the clock sits on and one or more of the feet are lifted slightly off of the table. This could easily be fixed by simply cutting or grinding the bolt shorter. Please refer to the images to form your own opinion about cosmetic condition. Your opinions, based upon your review of the images and your own research, shall take precedence over any subjective opinion or erroneous statements of my own. Do note that the clock is dusty; I haven't so much as wiped it off with a damp rag. You are receiving it in the "as found" condition. Also note that the true color of the marble is cream. Some of the photos have given it a greenish cast due to lighting conditions. This is a great clock that deserves better than to be cast aside. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking. Internal code: r-ri-52-91...DSC205-220...1291rg/3.0/14x9x5 Condition: Please read description and review images for complete details. Among other things, this clock is not working at this time. Sold for parts, repair of for decorative purposes.
