The Manchester Downtown Hotel (formerly the Radisson Hotel), Manchester, NH
Winterhalder & Hofmeier, Schwarzenbach, Germany, bracket clock, 8 day, time and strike with Westminster chime playing on four gongs, triple fusee movement in an oak architectural case with fluted pilasters, frieze meant to resemble ashlar, tympanum with carved floral design, brass dial plate with applied cast spandrels, silvered chapter ring with Roman numerals, subsidiary rate adjustment and chime / silent dials, blued steel hands.
CONDITION: The oak case has an original finish that has been nicely rubbed down. There are two splits in wood on either side of the roof, one that was repaired. A piece of fretwork from the door on the right side has broken off, but is included for future repair. Small chip to the top of the right pilaster. Cloth behind all three doors is deteriorating. Lock on rear door is missing. The dial has a bit of dark tarnish in the center matte area and silvered chapter ring. The movement ticks, strike, and chimes, but could probably use attention.

PRICE SOLD: $800
DIMENSIONS: 17.5in x 13in x 9.25in
