Condition Report For Lot# 1137 :
overall excellent condition. all numbers match on mounting bracket movement and pendulum. Note that this case is extra deep, and a one inch block is used to space the movement out from the back board, however there is no bracket of later tampering. Pattern on weights, pendulum and dial is etched in, not engraved, and the scrolling pattern on pendulum and weights does not quite match the leafy pattern on the dial center. The case features a large dentil treatment above dial, and a well pendulum female bust at top. Dial is flanked by two full round and reeded columns, and surrounded by a deeply carved bezel, the lower pendulum of this double door design with well detailed pilasters. Very heavy door is held in place by pendulum robust lock and original key. This one of a kind case was likely commissioned to match a set of dining room furniture. This clock weights approx 65 pounds and we suggest a stronger wall wall hanger. Ht 64"
