Shipper: STORE PICK UP
A long case or grandfather clock from Germany dates from about 1900, and has been professionally cleaned and oiled. The original brass movement keeps excellent time, and strikes the hour on a resonant gong signed "Bass."
Pull chain winding runs for a week. Brass dial, weights and pendulum are all original on this antique clock. The solid oak case has its original finish, waxed and buffed so all that is needed to maintain its luster is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth. The original dial glass is wavy and lower plate glass panes are beveled. There is no key for the door.
Size is 19" wide, 11" deep and 84" tall.

This clock needs to be "set up" when delivered - weights and pendulum attached and the case leveled. Most of our customers can do this as we walk them through the fairly simple steps by phone. The process is not very difficult, and it is also nice to know how to do this again whenever the clock needs to be moved for cleaning, painting or whatever. A few customers prefer to hire a local clockmaker at their own expense to make a house-call and set up the clock, which is usually not very expensive, depending on your location.
