Condition Report For Lot# 1097 :
this example is in very good condition with a nice patina on the brass and good nickel plating on the top. The pierced brass railing needs to be resecured, and the small metal door covering the lower winding arbor is absent. The silvered dials show some wear. Both thermometer glass tubes are intact, the beveled glasses are good, the barometer language is Dutch. The small unsigned movement has a new balance platform which ticks briskly, and the spring motor in the base, which turns the beacon, also is operational. Ht 17"
