The Manchester Downtown Hotel (formerly the Radisson Hotel), Manchester, NH
England, double-sided gallery clock, 8 day, time only, spring-driven fusee movement in a carved walnut case with 11 inch painted metal dials on opposite sides, both with cream background and black Roman numerals, blued steel Paris style spade hands.
CONDITION: The walnut case has an original finish which was maintained through the years or nicely rubbed down. There are two mounting hooks with chains on top for mounting the clock to the ceiling. The door on the bottom of the case to access the pendulum has a lock, but no key. It is currently unlocked. One of the two metal dials is flaking significantly. Some rust on the hands. The well-built movement has nicely finished plates and the original fusee chain. The movement ticks vigorously but was not tested extensively This clock would be an impressive addition to any suitable space.
ESTIMATE: $800 - $1200
PRICE SOLD: $750
DIMENSIONS: 16in x 36in x 6.5in
