Seller: nworrel_0 (449) 100%, Location: HERNE BAY, Ships to: GB, Item: 133267001821 HERE WE HAVE A VINTAGE MANTLE CLOCK MADE BY WORLD RENOWNED ENGLISH CLOCK MAKERS, ELLIOTT OF LONDON IN OCTOBER 1961. THE DATE IS MARKED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CLOCK AS WITH MOST ELLIOTT CLOCKS. THE CLOCK HAS A SOLID WALNUT CASE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, WITH VIRTUALLY NO CHIPPING OR DAMAGE TO THE EDGES OR CORNERS. THE CASE HAS BEEN WAX POLISHED AND IS SHINING BEAUTIFULLY AND EVENLY.THERE ARE A FEW MINOR AND SMALL DENTS IN THE TOP OF THE CLOCK BUT THESE ACTUALLY SHOW MUCH MORE IN THE PHOTOGRAPH'S THAN IN REALITY. THE REST OF THE CASE IS VIRTUALLY IN MINT CONDITION.THE BEZEL IS SOLID BRASS AND NOT SIMPLY A GOLD COLOURED METAL AS WITH LATER ELLIOTT CLOCKS. IT IS IN PRETTY MUCH PERFECT CONDITION AND HAS BEEN CLEANED AND POLISHED.THE SILVERED FACE AND CHAPTER RING ARE IN GREAT CONDITION , AS ARE THE BLACK NUMERALS AND HANDS.THE CLOCK WAS PRESENTED TO ELSIE F MORTIMER ON HER RETIREMENT FROM THE WILTSHIRE TIMES IN 1961 AND HAS A BRASS PLATE FIXED TO THE TOP, WITH THIS UPON IT. THIS HAS ALSO BEEN CLEANED AND POLISHED. SHE HAS OBVIOUSLY LOVED AND CHERISHED THE CLOCK AS YOU CAN SEE THAT IT HAS BEEN VERY WELL LOOKED AFTER. THE CLOCK HAS AN 8 DAY MOVEMENT WHICH IS WOUND FROM THE BACK BY AN INTEGRAL KEY, SO YOU CANNOT LOSE THE KEY. THE HANDS ARE ALSO ADJUSTED VIA THE CHROME KNOB AT THE BACK.THE MOVEMENT IS A VERY GOOD QUALITY FRENCH ESCAPEMENT AND 11 JEWEL MOVEMENT AND IS STAMPED AS SUCH ON THE BACK PLATE. THE SPEED OF THE CLOCK CAN BE ADJUSTED BY MOVING THE LEVER IN THE CURVED SLOT AT THE TOP OF THE BACK, TO THE RIGHT TO SPEED UP AND TO THE LEFT TO SLOW DOWN. THE MOVEMENT HAS ALSO BEEN RECENTLY LIGHTLY OILED AND IS RUNNING VERY WELL AND KEEPING GOOD TIME.THE CLOCK HAS JUST RUN NON STOP WITHOUT BEING WOUND FOR 16 DAYS, WHICH INDICATES TO ME THAT THE SPRING IS STILL STRONG.SOME ADJUSTMENT AS MENTIONED ABOVE MAY BE NECESSARY WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE CLOCK AFTER POSTING.IT HAS THE TYPICAL QUIET BUT PLEASINGLY BUSY ELLIOTT TICK.THE CLOCKS DIMENSIONS ARE 340mm WIDE X 192mm HIGH X 70mm DEEP FRONT TO BACK. I HAVE ENDEAVORED TO GIVE A DETAILED, ACCURATE AND HONEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS CLOCK. THE DESCRIPTIONS OF MANY CLOCKS ON THIS SITE ARE VERY VAGUE AND MAKE BUYING RATHER RISKY. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK AND ALTHOUGH I AM NOT AN EXPERT IN CLOCKS, I WILL DO MY BEST TO HELP.
