Vintage: Wall Clock
New England Clock Co.: Bristol, Connecticut
Vintage NEW ENGLAND CLOCK Co. 8 Day Chiming Wall Clock - Key Wind:  Up for auction is wonderful vintage 8-Day, Chiming Wall Clock made by THE NEW ENGLAND CLOCK Co. - Bristol and Farmington, Connecticut (the dial is marked Bristol, Connecticut but the paper label and the movement is marked with their Farmington, Connecticut facility).  The New England Clock Co. is known for their stunning, furniture quality cases and their floral designed dials and this clock is a perfect example of those trademark qualities.  The large wooden case is a statement piece.  Quite large with a large hinged door with a wonderful piece of glass that is free of any cracks or chips.  The case itself does show some minor scuffs and scratches but these are not deep or compromising the overall beauty of this clock.  The paper label is fully intact, individually numbered and the only discrepancy is the light line which the pendulum has created.  There are also the two interesting side pieces which I have not seen in other examples.  The wood and stain matches exactly with the case and there is a small hole in the top of each cylinder shaped 'finial' but I just do not know what their purpose is so I apologize that I cannot explain what these are for...  This clock was part of a collection from a retired watch and clock maker/repairman from here in New Hampshire and I wish that I had him adjust the pallet before I took this clock home with me.  The clock is in working condition but when it is working, every time the pendulum swings back and forth, the pallet releases the escapement wheel for too long and the clock skips ahead 10 minutes per swing of the pendulum.  I believe the quick fix would be to slightly adjust the pallet however I do not feel comfortable adjusting this piece and I will leave this quick fix up to the winning bidder. 

I will also be posting for auction a New England Clock Co. Cuckoo Clock housing group following this listing (see picture #10).  Very similar in design, the cuckoo clock needs everything (movement, bellows, chains, weights, etc.) but it would make a great project to build or to have built by a clockmaker and I think that the pair of clocks would be a wonderful complimentary pair in any home.

Shipping and Other Notes:
1.  As a picker, I seek out vintage collectibles that I am especially proud to have found and picked.
     I enjoy discovering pieces of history and passing them along to folks who will cherish and
     appreciate them as much as I do.

2.  I am not a dealer.  I go on picks when I have free time to do so.  Most of the items that I discover
     are found in old barns, attics, and estates where the items have sat untouched for many years.  I
     will occasionally clean a piece gently and appropriately in order to show the buyer a good
     representation of the sale item.
3.  I do my best to list and describe each item as accurately as I can.  If you have specific questions
     or would like to view additional photos, I will be happy to help.
4.  I will pack each item with the care and attention that I would expect to receive.
5.  Shipping will be timely and as reasonably prices as possible.
6.  At this point in time, I do not ship outside of the US.
7.  I have many items that I have picked (old medicine bottles, vintage toys, tools, advertising pieces
     and much, much more.  If there is an item that you are looking for, sent me a note and I will let you
     know if I have it or if I can get it for you.
8.  Treat one as you would want to be treated.  This lesson taught to me by my mother will be
     reflected in each and everyone of my transactions.
9.  Semper Fidelis - Always Faithful.  Another valuable lesson instilled during my honorable service
     with the United States Marine Corps.  I promise honesty and integrity in order to make each and
     every transaction an enjoyable and positive experience.

Thanks for taking a look and please check back often to see my other great finds!
