Shipper: STORE PICK UP
Signed by the most famous of American tubular chime grandfather or tall case clocks, "Herschede," this vintage clock from about 60 years ago has a mahogany case with an excellent restored finish.
The brass movement has been professionally cleaned and oiled and keeps excellent time. It plays the familiar Westminster melody, a longer part of the tune on each quarter hour, also counting the hour on the top. Contact us to hear the soft and resonant chime. A pull chain winding runs for a week, there is a silent lever on the side.
The lavishly engraved and embossed filigree dial has the crown symbol of "Herschede." There is a shadow from a removed presentation plaque.
Measurements of the classical case are 21 1/2" wide, 12" deep and 81" 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.
