EXCELLENT RUNNING CONDITION

ORIGINAL TIME AND STRIKE AND ALARM BRASS CLOCK MOVEMENT

PROFESSIONALY CLEANED MOVEMENT, OILED AND ADJUSTED

GLASS DEPICTS BEATTIFUL AND HARD TO FIND  PHEASANTS AND  FOUNTAIN DESIGN

FULLY RESTORED CLOCK CASE

SET TO BEAT AND REGULATED

This beautiful steeple mantel clock was made by the New Haven Clock Company of New Haven, Connecticut, circa 1878. Made in America just after the Civil War, it is amazing to consider that this wonderful spring driven clock, more than 130 years after its manufacture, still runs and keeps great time today! It is truly a testament to American ingenuity.

Many manufacturers such as Seth Thomas, Ingraham, Ansonia, Gilbert and Welch made steeple and beehive clocks, but this is an EARLY CLOCK as it was built with the original flat front lower base instead of the molded ogee ( OG ) shape that was used in later clocks.

Some people call this a sharp gothic clock.

I have included many pictures so you may enjoy the details of this beautiful mantel clock and bid with confidence.

BEAUTIFUL ROSEWOOD CASE

The wood case measures apx 19"H x 10"W x 3.5"D and is covered with ROSEWOOD and mahogany veneer that has mellowed to a deep rich, warm chestnut color. This beautiful clock shows extremely well. Look at the wild and fancy grained rosewood on the front half rounds! The veneer is tight to the case, You don't find this often with antique Steeple clocks as the horse hide glue the case makers used to adhere the veneer to the pine backboards often dried out, separating the delicate veneer from its base. This clock has tight glue joints and a sharply defined peak.

Furthermore, the case has a smooth waxed finish that enhances the depth of the grain.  

ORIGINAL ZINC DIAL

The off white zinc face is ORIGINAL to the clock with a small amount of flaking. This could be retouched easily, but the purist would leave it as is. The dial has great character as you can see the delicate age lines in the painted face. The Roman numerals have not been retouched and are sharp and very visible although they show some slight fading.

ROSEWOOD VENEERED DOOR

The upper part of the wood door frame still holds a clear glass to protect the face. The decorative knob of the clock door is completely original to the clock as it turns a latch that holds the door shut.

PHEASANTS AND FOUNTAIN GLASS

The lower part of the door has beautiful molding, veneered in the original wood. The glass design in the lower door is a replica of a period design held in place by wood strips. The design is the famous, and hard to come by clock design often referred to as “Pheasants and Fountain”. It is a stunning but uncommon design sometimes also seen on Brewster and Ingrahams steeple clocks.

SOLID BRASS CLOCK MOVEMENT

The clock is powered by the ORIGINAL time and strike, 30 hour spring driven movement WHICH HAS BEEN OILED AND SET TO PROPER BEAT for reliable timekeeping. The movement has been PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED, and it features solid brass plates and wheels. It strikes every hour, counting out the hours on a resonant coil gong situated in the lower part of the case. The clock also features an original alarm mechanism, although this has not been restored as today's antique collectors do not use this feature.

EASY TO REGULATE AND ADJUST

To make the clock go faster, simply screw the little knob at the end of the pendulum to the right. To slow down the clock, screw to the left. That's it.!

GREAT CLOCKMAKERS LABEL

Inside the case the original instructions for setting up and running the clock can be clearly seen as they were pasted to the backboard by the factory 130 years ago. THIS CLOCKMAKER'S LABEL is in excellent condition for its age.

READY TO RUN

This Steeple mantel clock comes complete with the original brass pendulum bob and a proper key for winding. All clocks are sold without a guarantee due to shipping. Rest assured, I am a careful and excellent packer.
