Seller: graham3943 (1.054) 100%, Location: Thames Ditton (nr. Hampton Court), Surrey, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362273024453 ANTIQUE FRENCH CARRIAGE CLOCK TIMEPIECE ALL COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AND TASTEFULLY RESTORED. *CLOCK DIMENSIONS: Height with handle folded down 5 3/4 inches (14.5 cms); Width 4 inches (10 cms); Depth 2 3/4 inches (7 cms)I am retired (with professional horological training), and have been restoring antique clocks as an interest for over 35 years. I specialise in antique and vintage carriage clocks. I really enjoyed overhauling and servicing this one last month in my workshop. It is in exceptionally good condition and looks really stunning on display. BRASS CLOCK CASE: Solid cast brass in perfect original condition. It is slightly taller and slimmer than the usual carriage clocks of the period. All case parts bear the same matching number (6), showing it to be totally original. The opening rear door is an absolute perfect fit - a good sign for obvious reasons! I completely dismantled the case and then cleaned, hand-polished and waxed each part before rebuilding the case. It now has a subdued (and not over-polished), antique patina which should last for years. (There are some jewellers marks engraved on the base plate beneath the movement. Two of the more easily decipherable ones read "J.W. 13/10/1936" and "G. Gimber 21/6/93") MOVEMENT: Excellent quality 8 day numbered timepiece. The movement number 174 is stamped on the back plate at the bottom and the word" Aiguilles (Hands), is also stamped just above the hand adjustment arbour. It has been fitted - not by me - with a replacement Swiss 7 jewel lever escapement and keeps really good time. It is beautifully engineered and finished (the back plate screws for example, have all been "blued"). After carefully checking the movement for wear, I cleaned and oiled it with appropriate high-grade clock and watch oil. I also cleaned and oiled the escapement. The movement is now in perfect working order. There is a fast/slow adjustment lever which is reached through the opening rear door. The movement should not need servicing again for many years.DIAL: The white enamel-on-copper dial is original and in absolutely perfect condition. It was very dirty when I acquired the clock but it has cleaned up beautifully: the bold roman numerals and chapter ring are crystal clear and the time can be easily read across the room. The delicate polished blued steel moon pattern hands are original and in perfect condition. GLASSES: All five glasses are also in perfect condition. The top rectangular glass is longer and narrower than those on the standard carriage clocks of the same period, being shaped to match the unusual dimensions of the case. KEY: The clock comes with a new double-ended brass carriage clock key which fits both winding arbours snugly: one end is for winding the 8-day movement and the other is for adjusting the hands.AN ELEGANT ANTIQUE FRENCH BRASS CARRIAGE CLOCK IN REALLY EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION.
