Seller: ctagrayuk (1.074) 100%, Location: Edinburgh, Edinburgh (City of), Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143322115026 A weight driven wooden Black Forest type 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 17th century wall clock. Complete with original foliot weights and drive weight. Please see images below. At the top of the images below I have included some short videos to give you an idea of how it looks and sounds when running. Please allow the videos to load before playing them through Condition. The clock is in good working order. The wood mechanism 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.
