Condition Report For Lot# 819 :
the case as you see it, is in excellent condition with original finish, except hood is now missing its broken arch crest and 3 finials, now replaced with a plain flat board, stained dark. The clock had to fit into a 7' 6" room and these bits were sacrificed. The silk backing is shredded and needs replacement. Carved claw feet are absent. The moon phase is in excellent condition with a wonderful depiction of elk and schooner and no flaking. Several tube strings and the cable on the strike train need to be replaced. Mercury has been removed and must be hand delivered. The movement is dirty but when tension was applied to all three trains they were turning free. Ht as shown 88" would finish to around 98" if you have restoration skills.
Estimate: $3000 - $5000
