Item:392692054199French 8 Day Platform Movement Bedside Light Up Night Clock Rare Mint Circa 1890. These are rare! Especially in this more or less mint condition. Just look at that old cable and switch! This was not going when I bought it so I took it apart and found it to be powered by a high grade 8 day platform movement of French manufacture as shown in the photos. The cylinder escapement was dry of oil but once a drop of two of watch oil was carefully applied away the movement went. It has not been properly cleaned mind and it still stops and does not run reliably but the balance staff is fine and the escapement balance has pretty good amplitude when it is running. So, I sell it as in “approaching” going condition, I Cannot actually offer any warranty on it. Also. I haven’t actually had it illuminated yet (the inner dial is projected on to the ceiling above the clock via a powerful magnifying lens. I have not yet worked out what sort of modern battery might fit. There is one screw missing from the cylinder platform escapement but otherwise condition is incredibly good and the absence of this one tiny screw does not affect the clock’s working in any way st all. This was originally a British “Ever Ready” clock, made in Germany with a French movement. 5 inches wide 6.25 inches deep 7 inches wideAge:Antique, Pre-1900, Sub-Type:Illuminated Dial Night Clock, Type:Bedside Clock, Material:Brass & Green Leatherette, Style/ Origin/ Theme:French, Clock Type:Mantel/ Carriage Clock, Features:8-Day
