ENGLISH SMITHS ENFIELD ANTIQUE ORIGINAL MANTEL CLOCK Picture(s) and Description:

 290112305742164740 ENGLISH SMITHS ENFIELD ANTIQUE ORIGINAL MANTEL CLOCK

This is an EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL example of a Smiths Enfield English Mantle Clock in wonderful condition. Runs great! It is a very classy design mantle clock in need of a warm loving home. The movement is signed. The Smiths Enfield Company was an English Company maker of very high quality clocks. It has a signed time and strike movement (could be an 8 day also but most were 14 day) which chimes a on a cathedral gong on the half-hour and counts the hours on the hour with a beautiful sound. The movement runs very well and keeps good time. The movement was just cleaned, oiled, pivots polished and bushings added where needed. This clock will not need servicing for many years to come, and is ready for the next 100 years! This is a labor intensive service, with many clockmakers charging 250.00 and up. We recommend having it oiled every 2 to 3 years to keep it in tip-top shape! With the purchase of this clock for an additional $ 2.25 we will include an oiler kit with a professional oiler loaded with enough oil to oil approximately 50 clocks with easy instructions so you could even do it yourself! This one runs about the best I have ever seen with a big bold swing of the original pendulum. Has a very pleasant quiet ticking sound as it runs. The case is very beautiful! The case is made of walnut in a beautiful style in very good condition with the veneer being 99.9%. It must have been made by a master craftsman by the quality of the construction. The dial is original and in superior condition! The numbers and lettering are very crisp! (See picture) The metal around the dial is original. Has its original convex glass and bezel! The hands are original. One thing I really like is its original back and back door! It has its original “knob” on the back door! Complete with the original signed key and the original heavy pendulum. The clock measures 9 ¼ inches high, 6 inches deep, and 12 inches wide. These antique clocks amaze me - could you imagine any other consumer product still working after all these years! And the truly amazing thing with proper care they will work easily past the next 100 years! Antique Clocks are a Fine Investment. Each one has a unique quality, as well as appreciating in value and beauty with age. You will become attached to your antique clocks and they will become a meaningful and important part of your life adding untold joy each day you own them. They can be handed down from one generation to another as they increase daily in value. Antique clocks serve many purposes other than being useful in telling time, decorative in your home, a valuable asset in your estate and above all a faithful servant and friend which will be true to you to the end of time. This clock will be packed very very carefully to insure a safe delivery and the buyer is to pay $19.50 for shipping, packing and ins. I will gladly answer any emails promptly. I have always hated that "reserve" when I have bid myself so this fine clock has no reserve and a very low starting bid. I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email. We will be at a clock convention in Lexington KY. Going in our vintage Airstream (with all the kitties!) from the 15th to the 27th .

We are taking our laptop and will be available somewhat to answer questions while on the trip – every so often we can find a modem hookup at a campground. We will ship promptly upon our return – sorry for the inconvenience.
