Unfortunately with some clocks it is not a matter of unpacking them, putting the pendulum on and away they go, some clocks will need the extra adjustments and setting into beat so please remember this before bidding. Most clocks will be ok and will not need any additional adjustments but please bear in mind this may not be the case. Any clocks returned because of setting up issues or adjustments needed after transit then a fee will be applicable. For your piece of mind we test all our clocks here before they are sent out and any issues are either sorted or described in the add, the clock will not have any problems as they are tested vigorously before sending. Please read my full terms and conditions by clicking on the returns tab above. Good luck and happy bidding   PLEASE NOTE: I have just received some excellent quality bracket clocks from a private collection all of which have been well looked after all of which will be listed over the next few weeks.

The fine detailed decorations are of the highest quality down to the figures on the pillars, the clock sits on its original birdseye maple veneered stepped up cathedral base and gives it an added display look, the base has the gong strike mechanism inside The case has its original blue stained glass panel to the centre behind which the pendulum swings and a true cathedral ferature THE DIAL The clock features a pierced bronze gothic dial with roman numerals and original French hands and stunning pierced decoration to centre.

The movement is in full working order keeping time and striking when it should as can be seen in the video above with its original silk suspension french pendulum and a new winding key The automaton top bell works with the strike hammer at the back of the movement having a silk cord attaching it to the hammer at the top and to the hammer which is in the base and it is that one which strikes the gong which is inside the base so the gong strikes in sync with the automation top bell and at the same time. An extremely rare feature to have and an absolute pleasure to watch The movement comes with a 6 months return to base warranty, please see full terms and conditions
