Condition Report For Lot# 993 :
solid walnut case is Heavy and robust; refinished with clear lacquer, so looks quite light. The painted dial featuring 3 birds in the arch and roses in the spandrel area is excellent, with only slight fading of the signature on the right side. 13" painted dial and signature are original and excellent. Movement was serviced, however a spring has failed and the spiked wheel is not being held against the click; secondarily the strike fan is loose on its arbor. This clock is unusual as it has false winding squares (it is pull chain wound) and also has a seconds dial (unusual for 30-hour tall clocks as an additional gear must be added to the time train to reverse the escape wheel direction for a seconds hand.
