This long case or grandfather clock was signed by famous Connecticut maker, "New Haven, USA," about 1910.
The solid oak case has a fine original finish with a little antique "crazing" from age, see photos. The solid brass movement has been professionally cleaned and oiled. It runs accurately for a week on a winding, by pulling the chains. A gong counts the hour and sounds the half hour as well. Behind the locking beveled glass door are brass weights and a pendulum.
Size is 21" wide, 14" deep and 89" tall to the tip of the finial.
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.
