Seller: pro_clock (2.666) 100%, Location: Congleton, Cheshire, Ships to: Europe & many other countries, Item: 202599273909 Hi ThereBefore bidding on, or buying any item from me, please check my feedback and bid/buy with the utmost confidence.If you buy this clock from me, you will receive a C/D with a 103 photos of the work I have carried out on the movement and the case, along with a write-up of the work seen in the photos. I was the first person to do this and it is proving very popular with customers. Some of these pictures can be seen in this listing. I take great pride in my work, which I hope can be seen in the finished product.The full asking price includes delivery and set up of this clock within a hundred mile radius of Congleton. Please read the note towards the bottom of this listing. On offer here is a lovely and one of a kind large Ansonia, New Haven kitchen/mantel clock. The case, tablet glass, dial, gong and pendulum are Ansonia. This was made in 1894 with the model name of Cordova and sold for $5.60. The movement is New Haven, which was another American clock company. After some research I discovered that the movement dates to the early 1920s. How, why and when this marriage was done, I don’t know. What is known as far as I am concerned is that someone loved this clock many years ago to have it worked on in such away. In the U.S. these clocks are called gingerbread clocks, because of their shape. This clock has been fully and extensively, serviced and cleaned by myself. The case to this clock was in very poor condition and I spent over 15 hours to bring it back to its former glory. The movement was in a terrible dirty state and very badly worn. In my opinion it has not been worked on since its marriage which I think was 80 odd years ago. I have cleaned and serviced the movement to what I hope you think is a high standard while still trying to keep the character of the clock. Some of the work carried out on the movement included fitting 8 new bushes to worn points on the clock plates and fitting 3 new pivots to really worn wheels. This work can be seen on the c/d.This clock is an eight day and strikes on the half hour and counts the hours at 12. It is now keeping very good time.The case dimensions are 13 ¼” wide by 20 ½” high by 5” deep. The dial diameter is around 6”.Please do bear in mind that this clock is a true antique. It is in very good condition but there will be some imperfections related to its age. As I have said, the case is in very good condition and shows very little sign of wear considering how old it is. I debated with myself for quite a while on whether to replace the face. In the end I decided I would. The original dial was just a little to tatty to keep. I will let you decide if that was the right decision or not.This clock comes with an old key, but it isn’t an original key. As with all my clocks, the buyer will receive my own care sheets so that you will get the most out of the clock. Covering four sheets of A4, these pages cover everything from winding up the clock and adjusting the time, to when to have it serviced. You will receive a C/D with a write-up and a 103 photos showing all the work I have done on the movement and case. The care sheets will be on the C/D. If you require them printing, please let me know. Please note the following on postage:-I offer a delivery and setup service to anywhere in the UK. If you pay full price for the clock the delivery is included up to a hundred miles from Congleton. If you live further than that, the added cost for delivery is 0.30 per mile return, over the 200 miles. So the cost of delivery and setup, if you lived 150 miles from me would be £30. I will also give you a twelve month guarantee. You will see the clock running and ask any questions you might have.RememberIf you do decide to pick up the clock from me or have it delivered and setup by myself I will give you a twelve month guarantee.Please have a good look at the photos before buying and email any questions you might have.Finally, just some personal thoughts on these old clocks.Back in the day... Clocks weren't just a decoration; families centred their lives on the time they displayed. As a repairer, each one is defiantly different and has a personality. When you think of what the world has been through since these clocks were made, my mind just boggles. Wars, natural disasters and the changing face of technology. Millions upon millions of lives born and lost along with all their experiences. How many children learnt to tell the time using them? How many owners have these clock had? How many times have they been handed down after the owner has passed away?If only they could talk! I am passionate and obsessed about these old clocks and want to see them being passed down for future generations. While working on these old clocks I sometime come across a date and signature of a clock maker who has worked on it many years ago. For the last few years I have signed and dated all the movements I work on. This mark will only ever be found if a clockmaker in the future works on it. Condition: This clock has been cleaned, serviced and repaired by myself. Both the movement and case have had a great deal of work carried out and is now in very good condition, but do bare in mind that its not a new clock at around a 120 years old. Please read the listing in full, look at the photos and email any questions you may have. Thank you.., Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Sub-Type: Mantel Clock, Type: Victorian Mantel clock, Material: Wood, Style/ Origin/ Theme: American, Clock Type: Mantel/Kitchen Clock, Features: 8-Day
