Condition Report For Lot# 563:
except for a dry split at the top of the door, a couple of perimeter holes in case back where screws secured the clock to the wall, and a replaced door glass, this clock is otherwise in outstanding original condition. The quarter sawn oak veneered panel in the case back and the tapered base show one of the liveliest & most attractive grain patterns we have seen. The original slightly crazed finish has been rubbed and waxed and is a wonderful golden color. Dial is original and outstanding. Retains good original weight with knurled ends and pulley. Has large & proper iron bracket with heavy "saddle" for holding the mercury pendulum; original fading gold paint on bracket. The movement has been professionally cleaned and re-strung and is in good running order; note this movement with optional jeweled pallets (shown in detail photo) Perhaps the nicest oak #19 we have had the pleasure of selling. Shown here in the Wasserman home. Ht 75"
Estimate: $18000 - $22000
