WATERBURY ANTIQUE ALL ORIGINAL OGEE MANTLE CLOCK 1874 Picture(s) and Description:

 248822305558554390 WATERBURY ANTIQUE ALL ORIGINAL OGEE MANTLE CLOCK 1874

This is a GREAT All-Original Ogee style shelf or mantel clock made circa 1874. It was made by the Waterbury Clock Company, maker of fine American clocks. This clock has all of its original parts (rare - see pictures), has the original top wavy glass and the original bottom wavy glass with the original reverse painting, the original movement, original door, and door knob – which works great, the original back with some of the original paper label on the inside. Even the dial is original and is in SUPERIOR original condition – quite rare indeed, Usually the top glass has been broken and the bottom glass has long since flaked off or been broken. The dials have usually been flaked off and have had to be replaced. Remember this clock is near 150 years old! The case is in very beautiful condition and has its dark beautiful finish. It looks to be rosewood or walnut. The veneer is in very good condition for its age, with some small repairs. The sides of the case are also very good. The clock works perfectly and keeps very good time. It has a 30 hour time and strike movement. 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! We added some new cords while we were at it! The clock strikes the hour on the hour on the original signed large gong with a great old clock sound (original). The clock is fun to wind using the included crank. This clock works beautifully and will continue to do so for many years to come with no maintainance. The dial has a large hole where the hands hook on. This is because the maker was trying to show off that the movement was made of solid brass. This clock is very large - 26 inches high, 15 ½ inches wide and 4 ½ inches deep. The power for the clock comes from the 2 heavy weights (cast iron) rather than springs. Weights cause the clock to keep better time rather than springs. Springs cause a clock to run faster when they are first wound and slower as they wind down. What a piece of American Heritage! 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 by our “award winning” (receiving a perfect “10” from a gracious customer) packing department (my wife, assisted by “Wild Thing”) to insure a safe delivery and the buyer is to pay $28.50 for shipping and ins. (The clock is “oversize” when packed and is heavy!) 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 very low (gulp) starting bid. We love these clocks and I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email.
