Seller: shiny69 (619) 100%, Location: Brighton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 332678675484 I am selling a pale green Vitascope automaton clock for spares or repair.The clock houses an automaton seascape diorama of a sailboat if the clock were to work the boat would slowly rock on the waves, backlit by a changing light which simulates sunrise through daylight to sunset then night. The clock is not in working order and needs some work or could be a good donor clock. There is no wiring inside apart from a short cable connected to the light fitting and the switch. The electric movement looks to be in fairly good, clean condition with all the parts moving freely as does the ship automaton, I have not attempted to wire the clock so I do not know if it is electrically working.It is missing its hour hand and two sails on the boat, also one of the ship strings is broken. The case has its back panel screws but the top two don't hold so I think the threads may have stripped. The casing has got some scratches, marks and stains in places and there is some crackled patterns to the top. It looks to have suffered some sun bleaching as the colour does vary slighty here and there. I cannot see any cracks anywhere in the casing or any major chips on any edges. The green painted back panel has got some scratches and marks in places and is stamped with the serial number 01107 on the bottom of the panel. The clock stands 32cm high, 27cm wide & 16.5cm deep. To any potential international buyers, please be aware that this clock is designed to work on UK mains voltage of 230v to 250v AC 50 Hz Please read the listing fully and study the photos carefully as they form part of the description and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
