Seller: pro_clock (2.670) 100%, Location: Congleton, Cheshire, Ships to: Europe & many other countries, Item: 202566235060 Hi ThereBefore bidding on, or buying any item from me, please check my feedback and bid/buy with the utmost confidence.If you buy this clock from me, you will receive a C/D with 88 photos of the work I have carried out on the movement and the case, along with a write-up of the work seen in the photos. Some of these pictures can be seen in this listing. I take great pride in my work, which I hope can be seen in the finished product.The full asking price now includes delivery and set up of your clock within a hundred mile radius of Congleton. Please read the note towards the bottom of this listing. On offer here is a lovely, circa 1900 restored French carriage clock. These carriage clocks are notoriously difficult to date. This movement and case was made from around 1870 to about 1910. Many French and some British clock manufactures used and sold these carriage clocks and often there is no makers mark. I think this one dates to approximately 1900, but could be a few years either side of this.This clock has been fully and extensively restored, serviced and cleaned by myself. The case to this clock was in poor condition and required a great deal of work. The movement was in ok condition and was working, although not for a full week. I have cleaned and serviced the movement and case to what I hope you think is a high standard.Underneath the clock is a label from when the clock was last serviced in August 1981. I researched the guys name and spoke to someone who knew him. By all accounts he was a bit of a character and wasn’t a clockmaker for very long.This movement has had a replacement platform escapement, properly in the 1981 service. I did strip, clean and oil the escapement. The movement required a new mainspring. One of the clock plates was worn and needed one new bush to repair that. The case and glass are in very good condition, but the brass was badly tarnished. I stripped the case down completely and then cleaned and polished it. The case is then cleaned again to remove the polish and then lacquered.Please do bear in mind that this is an old clock and therefore although in very good condition for its age, there will be some imperfections related to this. The face and the 5 glasses are in good conditionThis clock comes with its original double ended key and will need winding every 7 days. If being posted to you the clock will be completely unwound.As with all my clocks, the buyer will receive my own care sheets so that you will get the most out of the clock. Covering four sheets of A4, these pages cover everything from winding up the clock and adjusting the time, to when to have it serviced. You will receive a C/D with a write up and 88 photos showing all the work I have done on the movement and case. The care sheets will be on the CD. If you require them printing, please let me know. Please note the following on postage:-I offer a delivery and setup service to anywhere within mainland UK. If you pay full price for the clock the delivery is included up to hundred miles from Congleton. If you live further than that, the added cost for delivery is 0.30 per mile return. So the cost of delivery and setup, if you lived hundred and fifty miles from me would be £30. I will also give you a twelve month guarantee. You will see the clock running and ask any questions you might have.RememberIf you do decide to pick up the clock from me or have it delivered and setup by myself I will give you a twelve month guarantee.Please have a good look at the photos before buying and email any questions you might have.Finally, some personal thoughts on these old clocks.Back in the day, clocks weren't just a decoration; families centred their lives on the time they displayed. As a repairer, each one is defiantly different and has a personality. When you think of what the world has been through since these clocks were made, my mind just boggles. Wars, natural disasters and the changing face of technology. Millions of lives born and then lost, along with all their experiences. How many children learnt to tell the time using them? How many owners have these clocks had? How many times have they been handed down after the owner has passed away?If only they could talk!I am passionate and obsessed about these old clocks and want to see them being passed down for future generations. While working on these old clocks I often come across a date and signature of a clock maker who has worked on it many years ago. In fact, this clock has a dated label. For the last few years I have signed and dated all the movements I work on. This mark will only ever be found if a clockmaker in the future works on it. Condition: This clock has been cleaned, serviced and repaired by myself. Both the movement and case have had a great deal of work carried out and is now in very good condition, but do bare in mind that its not a new clock at nearly 120 years old. Please read the listing in full, look at the photos and email any questions you may have.
