Antique Gilbert Regulator No 3 Wall Clock 1870s Rosewood Case Time Only Running. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself! This is a very nice Gilbert Regulator No 3 Clock that is rare and uncommon to be available in the market place. Do not see another one available in any internet clock store at the time of this listing (let me know if one of you sees one). The wood case which appears to be made of rosewood has a lot of its’ original elegance. The wood appliques on the front of the case are all in place as well. The condition of the case is very nice. The topper and finials are all in place, some condition issues, see below. Great looking brass movement on this clock as well, see the pics. Ingenious how Gilbert made the sliding rosewood panels behind the pendulum and bob to mask the lead weight from being seen. No loose wood pieces on the case, all the carved appliques and finials are in place. The locking latch for the door is still on the side of the case. Hinges for the door are in working order. The back panel on this clock really shows a lot of age, a crack in it from about 1/3 of the day down from the top running to the bottom. The topper is all there. The topper appears to have been dropped at some point as you can see where split across the piece, under the lady’s face, and repaired at some point in the past. The three bottom finials are in place, the center one has part of the point and cone just above the point cut off on the back. The leveler plate is still in place at the bottom of the case. Nice intact glass piece on this case. As noted before, the glass on the front of this clock case is just beautiful and intact. Has a couple of molding bubbles in it as well! The glass has no blistering or cracks. Cannot say if the glass is original, but looks appropriate. The clock face is made of paper applied to tin. Says “Wm L Gilbert Clock Co” and “Winsted, Conn” on it. The paper face is most likely a replacement one applied to the original tin pan. The clock hands match and look appropriate to the clock. Did not see any marking on the front plate of the brass movement. The movement design and hanger for the pendulum matches up with other Gilbert Regulator movements we have found pictures of online at the sites we refer to. This is an eight day movement. Beautifully detailed brass cable and pulley the weight hangs from. The leaded weight looks appropriate to the clock, cannot say if original. This is a weight driven time only movement. Great wood pendulum rod (no splits or repairs) and brass bob on this clock that look appropriate to the clock. Much of the paper label is still on the back of the case. The clock stands 48″ tall, by 15.5″ across, by 6-7/8″ wide (by topper, 6″ by case). The clock face is 7-5/16 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. To get a quote to your location just let us know and we will send the contact information over to you. You can also pick it up in Wilmington, DE. Will also offer to deliver the clock to within 150 miles of Wilmington, DE one way. Make sure that this clock meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. So again, ask all questions you have, come see in person or send a friend to see the clock on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it. Don’t be shy, we are always open to reasonable suggestions!
