Seller: Top-Rated Seller kernowmanwatches (1.519) 100%, Location: Penzance, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 264454759784 You are bidding on a very nice antique French 8 day brass timepiece carriage clock - it does not have any makers or origin marks on it, but it is very definitely French. It is in a Grande case, slightly larger than a standard size carriage clock. I would say it dates from the late 1800s or possibly the very early 1900s. It is fitted with a later Gorge compensated lever escapment. The clock has had a very full service which involved being fully dismantled, including the platform escapement, then having both a manual and ultrasonic clean. Naturally, the spring was removed from its barrel, checked and cleaned before being properly lubricated and fitted back. The clock runs for its full length of wind which is around 8 days and comes with a modern brass carriage clock key. It is wound and set by this key through the glazed back door. The movement is in nice, original condition. The white enamel dial, which is mounted on a separate dial plate, is excellent, with no chips or hairlines at all, and nice clear Roman numerals. All glasses are bevelled, including the top oval one, and are generally in excellent condition - there is just a very minute, and hardly noticeable, chip on the face of the bevels on one corner of one of the side glasses and on one corner of the back door glass. The brass case is all original with matching internal numbers - there are some places with light age related marks, and a tiny impression on the right front pillar near the bottom - a very nice case for over 100 years old. The back door closes nicely as it should, the handle is tight, and the clock has its original baseplate. The case has been fully dismantled - it has not been over polished - all polishing has been done by hand to preserve the detail. It has been coated in a very high quality wax specially made for the brass plates and cases of clocks, which acts has a tarnish inhibitor. It is just over 13cm tall to the top of the case, and just under 18cm tall to the top of the handle when it is up. The clock has a base width of just over 9cm. I have tried to be very accurate with my description and mention everything I feel the buyer should know, however, please contact me if you have any questions or need any further information. The clock will come with a service report showing what work has been done on the movement, and I will also enclose a set of my clock information sheets, written generally to cover the set-up and maintenance of most types of clock. I will always be happy to give extra specific information if needed. UK mainland 24 hour shipping will be by UPS (excludes Highlands, Islands, Northern Ireland and LA postcodes - please contact me first if bidding from these areas and I will advise of an alternative carrier). The clock will be securely packed to ensure that it reaches you in perfect condition - we always double box and use new packing materials where possible. I welcome overseas bidders - the clock will be sent by Royal Mail, fully tracked. Item No. KMW1925 If you are bidding on any of my other auctions, I will combine postage on multiple items. Items paid for by Paypal will only be sent to the Paypal verified address. All UK items will be sent, unless otherwise stated, by Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded. All items, if under the maximum weight limit of 2kg when packed, will be sent overseas by Royal Mail Airmail International 'Signed For' service unless otherwise stated. Items are now sent this way to conform to eBay/Paypal regulations that safeguard both the buyer and the seller. This can make the shipping charge, particularly for overseas bidders, higher than possibly expected as the Recorded/Signed For service adds to the UK postage, particularly to the overseas postage. I can accept no responsibility in the very rare event that items get lost in the post, but I will endeavour to do all I can to help the buyer by contacting Royal Mail and getting them to do the necessary search.
