Seller: mrg222 (531) 100%, Location: Cambridge, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 303498327888 Normal 0 LANTERN CLOCK PROJECT, INCLUDING WORKING BIRDCAGE MOVEMENT An interesting Lantern Clock project for someone to complete. Personal advanced age and ill health precludes completion. Materials included with the project are: Brass lantern clock frame (posts, top and bottom plates) with turned feet and finials, and cross-frame for bellEngraved front plate, and engraved chapter ring (diam. 160mm) with black-filled numerals and rings, to fit above frameBirdcage movement (ca. 18th century), single hand, square steel posts, with striking mechanism and hammer. Bell holder on top plate. Includes chain (lt. rust), with circular cast iron tensioning weight, and pulley with hookTwo good cast bronze bells (138 & 142 mm), one w/ especially fine tone PLATE SPACING: Spacing between the top and bottom plates is: Lantern frame: ca. 157 mm Birdcage frame: ca. 151 mm This indicates that only a fairly small amount of adjustment will be required when transferring the birdcage movement to the lantern frame. CONDITION: The lantern clock material appears to have been recovered from a dismantled original, apart from the front plate which is newly engraved. The birdcage movement has light surface rust on some non-critical parts. However, with the addition of weights and a pendulum (not included), it runs well for between a half hour and an hour before stopping. Evidently a thorough clean is required, but basically working. Striking mechanism also works well. N.B.: This material is HEAVY, so postage will not be cheap, especially for shipment outside the U.K. Local collection could be arranged if required. Condition: Basically good. Movement is working, see description for more details., Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Material: Brass & Steel, Type: Clock Parts, Sub-Type: Movements, Clock Type: Lantern & Birdcage
