Condition Report For Lot# 1015 :
except for a small section of top missing, this is among the most original and most exceptional clock on offer today. Please refer to the pages shown above, where you will see that a 5 inch arched section is missing behind the top obelisk finial. Now the owner had not seen this, since hanging by itself, one would never notice the absence, Quarters are struck on two different gongs for the quarters; the hour is struck straight up on single gong; Rack controlled.. This is a large series 24 movement, and with through the dial F/S adjustment, just below the 12. The dial itself is made in composite style with large, 10" dial plate, with cast spandrels, finally with an applied silvered chapter ring with separate outer bezel and gold center accents. If the case were complete, we would have expected this clock to reach $6000. Ht 38 1/2"
