Seller: markdwarner (1.393) 100%, Location: Eastbourne, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 192554545755 Description PLEASE NOTE: Over the years I have squirrelled away a few clocks and am now having a bit of a clear out. So please have a look at my other auctions, and also pop back in a day or so and see what else I am listing.Due to their age, all my clocks are being SOLD AS SEEN. So, remember to check the photographs, description and condition section beneath. Any questions PLEASE SHOUT!Here is a rather interesting Smiths Mantle clock. Most examples I have seen are pendulum, or sometimes electric. This one uses a floating balance escapement. It's really rather good fun to watch the wheel swing back and forth (I know I really do need to get out a bit more).This clock is being sold FOR ATTENTION as although it currently runs fine it is losing 5+ minutes a day even with the regulator switch on the wheel set at fastest. So I am guessing it most likely needs a clean.O, I almost forgot this comes with its original Smiths key.Happy bidding!ConditionAs mentioned above, although this is currently running fine it loses time. The case is a bit scruffy and the face is rather worn round by the "9". The key is immaculate!Approximate DimensionsInches: The case is: 7 long x 7.5 high x 3.25 wide. The face is 6 across.Centimeters: The case is: 18 long x 19 high x 8.5 wide. The face is 15 across.The last photograph in the series features a can (not part of the auction!) to give you a sense of scale.Postage And Packaging I try to charge the exact cost of postage (or close to it). To keep my costs down, and help the environment, I use recycled boxes and packaging where at all possible. I also take a great pride in making sure that your item is VERY well packaged and arrives with you in great shape. I aim to get parcels on their way to you the day (or at the latest the next day) payment has been received. I always update the listing with a shipping tracking number, so you know it has been dispatched. If you purchase multiple items I will happily combine postal costs for you. So, if you have bought more than one item, please message me when the auctions are finished and I'll send you an invoice. Overseas Buyers PLEASE NOTE: I am not geared up to post items abroad, BUT I have opted in to the eBay Global Shipping Program (which means they do the overseas shipping for me). So if this item is available to you via that, then GREAT, we'll let eBay do the work for us! If it is not (eBay excludes some items from this program), I am sorry I CAN'T ship it to you! Payments As I am really just a hobbyist seller I only take Paypal or postal orders. I would ask you to PLEASE pay promptly if you win as late, or even worse non-payments, cause me a lot of hassle and it is really not very fair on someone who is trying to offer the best service possible!! About Me And Goodbye I guess that is it, apart from saying I ALWAYS do my VERY best to date and describe all the items I sell, BUT THEY ARE SOLD AS SEEN. So please read the complete description and look at ALL the photographs. I have always been a bit of a collector, but recently I have begun to sell as well. It is just a hobby and helps to fund some of my eBay purchases. I do not (and never will) make any kind of living out of it! Blimey, I'd starve to death if I ever tried! I also wish you happy bidding! If you have a chance please take a look at my eBay seller page and also at ALL the other wondrous treasures I have for sale!On 11-Jun-18 at 10:11:30 BST, seller added the following information: PLEASE NOTE: I FORGOT TO PUT ON THE LISTING THAT THE STRIKE DOES NOT WORK.
