Seller: ctagrayuk (994) 100%, Location: Edinburgh, Edinburgh (City of), Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 142511186606 A weight driven iron gothic style wall clock with foliot controlled verge escapement. A very simple and quite crudely made mechanism of unknown age but most likely a 19th c or possibly later copy of a later 14th or earlier15th century wall clock, some of which may be seen in museums. Complete with original foliot weights and drive weight. Please see images below. Clicking on any one image will open the images as a gallery in a separate browser or tab and then may be enlarged if required. At the top of the images below I have included two links to short videos to give you an idea of how it looks and sounds when running.You may need to copy and paste these links into your browser. Please allow the videos to load before playing them through Condition. The clock is in good working order. The iron mechanism has old black paint and it is somewhat rusty as might be expected but seems to have a nice aged look which is what you would want in a clock like this I imagine. The clock is rather erratic in its time keeping but this is due to the primitive nature of the escapement and foliot. It has a very short duration of around 12 to 18 hours or so and because of this I have only occasionally bothered to wind it for amusement. Really more for show than for timekeeping.
