Seller: john-f-t (331) 100%, Location: Alfreton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 174240439713 This is an early example of an American 'Round Gothic' (correct name) or, more commonly known, 'Beehive' shelf clock by William L Gilbert & Co (1851-66). The case is veneered with stripey mahogany with a plainer mahogany on the sides and although there are a few old repairs, it is overall pretty good (see photos). The finish is old and weathered - pretty well as you would expect on a 165 year old clock! The dial paint is the original and is unusually good; as it often isn't on these clocks. The front door tablet depicts a vase of flowers and is one of those scarce, early ones (which allow you to see the pendulum moving through the glass) that were made using something like a ground glass/quartz sand & gluesize stencilling process. The pierced plate, brass, spring-driven movement is 8 day and steel spring-driven; it strikes on a gong and has a separate, detached alarm train (that alarms on a bell) which is operated by a linkage from the main movement. It is complete with brass-faced, lead pendulum and key. This is an antique clock and I therefore cannot guarantee it; and advise that it will need to be levelled and set up correctly by a competent clock person. Condition: All three mainsprings are OK and, when wound and the pendulum hung on, the clock works, strikes on the gong and alarms on the bell., Age: circa 1855, Material: Stripey mahogany and mahogany veneer, Type: 'Round Gothic' or 'Beehive' Shelf clock, Features: 8-Day, Clock Type: William Gilbert & Co., Style/ Origin/ Theme: American
