Condition Report For Lot# 998 :
The case has lost its original finish and a thin coat of lacquer applied without stain, so the clock does appear light to the eye. The maintenance man at Santa Fe reinforced the top rear of the door with a metal bracket (very nicely done) to keep it from splitting [a common problem with this case]. The movement is clean and running. The original dial has had artists fixative applied, however the base surface and numerals are all original; only a couple of minor flakes and minor fading of some minute numerals. Complete with mercury pendulum [special shipping required], original thumb print glass jars, and with much of the original gilding still showing on the lower carriage of the pendulum. Ht 75"
