Beautifully refurbished Antique Chelsea Clock Co. 1 Pendulum Weight Driven Wall Clock. It is currently not working but a simple service is all it needs to be up and running as all of the constituent parts are present and in working order. The case is oak and has had some refinishing done including what seems to be a new bottom pedestal. This clock, having a large dial and long drop, is a very popular form. The twelve inch white enameled non-crackable dial is painted on tin. This dial is in very good original condition and is signed boldly across the front “Chelsea Clock Company Boston”. The beat plate looks to be replaced. The movement is brass and die-stamped on the front plate in the upper right with the Makers name, Chelsea Clock Co.. It is also numbered 11017 in the upper left. It is weight driven and is designed to run for eight-days on a full wind. The brass plates are extra heavy insuring rigidity to the movement. The steel pinions are cut and polished, the pivots are hardened and polished. The escapement is a recoil format. The pendulum rod is wood and the bob is brass. The motion of this pendulum can be viewed through the lower door. This clock also retains the clockmakers original set up label. This can be seen pasted to the back of the door. Please see pictures for condition details as the photos are considered part of the description. These clocks were used extensively in the public school systems of cities like Boston, New York and Brooklyn.
