Condition Report For Lot# 397:
dirty but in generally good original condition, with a very good original dial, hands, special weighted pendulum with minor dents, good beat scale, etc. This is a very hard to find model, using the Fischer patent striking movement. They made these clocks only from 1896 through 1902. It appears that someone installed the strike assembly upside down [see "150Years of Electric Horology", page 50, which shows the "crescent" installed over the minute shaft rather than under]; it appears to screw on either way. There is one large No. 6 EverReady battery [now dead] included. The 2 items that keeps this from being excellent, are a missing carved leafy trim on bottom right of case, and a small chip, too right. Ht 45.5"
Estimate: $700 - $1000
