I almost never grow an attachment to “things”. But this one is hard to give up. Before I go into the details. I want prospective buyers to know that I have more photos and can take more photos. This clock is AMAZING. I think this shows all of the expertise and quality of a piece crafted in 1827. There is a note on inside door that says clock made or repaired by R. Cashell Aug 14, 1827. There are also handwritten notes on the inside door that document the 1827 date. But please “judge” this by the construction and quality of the piece. The pendulum is detached from the clock. This will need repaired. I don’t know if this is a working clock. There were about 15 antique clocks for sale at that time. I just did not want to start turning things and mess something up. But if you know what I should move… Just let me know and I can pass that info to you. I would feel comfortable in assuming that someone took very good care of this. There is glass on all 3 sides of the top pieces. The glass has that “wavy glass” quality. Top brass finial is removable. The Weights are very unique. They weigh about 10 pounds each and are filled with some type of sand. Exterior of weight is some type of metal that has been crimped closed at top. Brass or bronze I would think. The moon face is so awesome. There is a scratch line running through some of the paint as you can see in photos. Don’t think this will be too hard to touch up as the scratch does not go through the moon face/eyes. Top portion has a wood inlay decorative oval. This top portion looks like it may have been repaired. See line in photo # 8. Repair looks professional to me and very good. I don’t have a key for the door. And Door Closes slightly askew. There is a “facade” (outer wood covering) of one of the legs that needs tacked back into position. See photo number 10. Height is 86.5″ without finial and 92″ including finial. Width is 20.25. Depth is 12.25. Please read my feedback and you will see that you have no worries.
