Grandfather Clock

This clock is made of solid Mahogany throughout and is in excellent used condition!  The clock has an Hermle Westminster chime movement installed which has just been serviced so in excellent working order. Tthe chimes can be silenced at night or any other time by adjusting a brass push rod that is located in the waist of the clock.  This rod is also used to select the Westminster chimes.

The movement is powered by 3 brass heavy in overall excellent condition.  There is the odd light scuff mark/tarnish here and there but very insignificant and barely seen when viewed from the front of the clock.  The brass pendulum is in very good condition.

The brass dial is also in excellent condition like the moon phase which is working perfectly well.

I have added a number of pictures of the clock for you to view.  If however you require further pictures please do ask and i will forward further pictures to your personal email address.

This is a beautiful clock and the buyer will not be disappointed!

 Grandfather Clock

SOLD

Rosemary, Norfolk


   This clock is fitted with an Hermle triple chime movement    in excellent working order.  The movement is very clean which probably suggests that          the it has been serviced         within the last few years.  It     has the option of 3 chimes - St Michael, Whittington and  Westminster.  Any of these chime selections can be made by the adjustment of the small lever that locates through the slot in the front of the dial.  There is also a manual silencing adjustment for the chimes using this lever.


The clock has the moon phase dial in very good condition and perfect working order.
The case of the clock is a mix of solid mahogany and mahogany finish.  It is in extremely good condition with just the odd minor imperfection here and there. Considering that the clock has been around for the best part of 25 years it has been very well cared for by the previous owner.  
The case has been finished in medium -dark mahogany (carefully study the pictures that have been uploaded as flash photography can be deceiving)
         The clock has a very                  decorative brass lyre                pendulum in excellent          condition and has 3 brass         heavy weights, all in very good condition with just the odd scuff mark here and there.  However the weights are very                 presentable!

Dimensions of clock are approximately:  
76"(H) x 18.5(W) x 10"(D)

Grandfather Clock


This clock is in very good condition throughout and is made of a mix of solid Mahogany and Mahogany finish. I would describe the finish to be a medium Mahogany but please study the pictures to give yourself a better idea?

The clock has a Kieninger Westminster Chime German movement installed which is in excellent working order but as I am unsure of the history of the clock the movement will be professionally serviced before sale. 

  
The movement is powered by 3 brass heavy weights.  The brass weight shells do have a fair amount of scuff marks and tarnishing but this is purely cosmetic and does not affect the mechanism whatsoever - everything is original and in keeping with a clock that is the best part of 40 years of age. The solid brass ornate dial is in very good condition.  The clock looks very traditional!


Access to the movement is easily achieved by removing either one of two side panels that are located in the hood of the clock.  This makes for easy access to the movement eg., to remove/replace the pendulum etc.

The clock has Westminster chimes but can be silenced at any time.  The silencing feature is easily selected by the adjustment of one or both levers which are located  behind the dial and directly behind numerals 3 and 9.  Access to these levers is easily made by removing the side panels that are located in either side of the hood of the clock.  If both levers are set to silent mode then the clock is completely silenced.  If the lever behind numeral 3 is silenced then the quarter chimes are disabled but the hour strike will continue and vice versa.

Any queries please do ask.
Dimensions of clock approx:
74.5"(H) x 16.75"(W) x 8.5"(D)

 Grandfather Clock

This clock is made of a mix of Yew and Yew finish and is in very good condition with just the odd minor imperfection which I have tried to picture.  I would estimate the age of the clock to be about 30yrs old.    

The clock has an Hermle Bim Bam strike movement installed which has just been serviced and therefore in excellent working order.  The movement by design does not come with a silencing mechanism but if the buyer prefers this I will quite happily fit a silencing device access to which will be behind the upper part of the pendulum door.  

The movement is powered by two brass heavy weights in very good presentable condition.    Likewise the brass pendulum disc and the  brass tempus fugit dial.

The hood of the clock slides forward and can easily be removed and replaced.  This is very handy to gain quick and easy access to the movement eg., to remove/replace the pendulum and if required to gain access to the suspension etc

If you require further info or further pictures please do ask and i will forward further pictures to your personal email address?

Dimensions of clock are: 

76.5"(H) x 15.75"(W) x 9"(D)
Where (H)&(W) = part of the clock that makes contact with the floor.

 Description

This clock is made mainly from solid Mahogany throughout and is in excellent used condition with just the odd minor imperfection around the skirting of the clock all of which are barely visible.  I would describe the finish to be a dark Mahogany but please see pictures that have been uploaded.  If you require further pictures please do ask and I will happily forward further pictures to your personal email address...

The clock has an Hermle Westminster chime movement installed in exc working condition.  The clock is about 10 years of ago hence the quality of the movement, which is very clean, and comes with autonight night silence.  The clock on inspection shuts off from 9:30pm and restarts at 7am correcting itself from 8am onwards.  So the clock is silenced for about 9.5 hours before restarting.  This feature is optional and can easily be cancelled by adjusting a pushrod, access to which is from the front of the clock via the pendulum door.  Also the clock has a manual silencing feature and can be selected by adjusting the lever that locates through the dial adjacent to numeral 3.  This lever is used to re- select the Westminster Chime.

The clock is powered by 3 brass heavy weights in very good condition with just the odd scuff/tarnish here and there.  However these are small and with the weights correctly positioned on the chains are barely visible.  The weights are extremely presentable!  The lyre pendulum is also in very good condition as is the brass moon dial which is in excellent working order.

Access to the movement is at the rear of the clock via a removable panel.

The clock has 3 opening doors which includes a door at the bottom part of the cabinet, all of which are held firmly closed under lock and key.

This clock looks superb and would enhance any home!  The dimensions of the clock are approximately:

86"(H) x 21"(W) x 11(D)

Where (W)&(D) are part of clock that contacts the floor.

 Grandfather Clock


This clock is made from a mix of solid Mahogany and Mahogany finish.  The clock is in excellent used condition with just the odd small/minor imperfections here and there.  I have taken a close up picture of a small imperfection on the swan-neck prediment.  It was very difficult to picture but do be honest, in my opinion, it is hardly recognisable.  However as i am a genuine seller i felt it essential to mention this and I have added a picture of this which I hope is clear enough to see.  As seen by the pictures, the clock has been finished in dark Mahogany.

The clock has a German Hermle Bell strike movement installed in excellent working order.  I am not sure when the movement was last serviced but I can say that it is currently in perfect working order!  
The movement sounds out the number of hours and strikes once on the half hours.  The movement is 8 day and is rewound by pulling down on the chains.  Also I have just fitted two brand new brass weight shells.  (The pendulum disc is in good condition with some mild tarnishing but nothing significant and is very presentable).  

The hood of the clock is easily removed by pulling it forward and away from the main body of the clock case.  This makes for easy access of the movement which is handy for removing/replacing of the pendulum and for putting the movement back into beat should it ever be knocked out of beat.  On the hood of the clock ie., on the swan neck pediment, the brass finials are in good condition but do have some mild tarnishing/scuff marks but are still very presentable.  This is an excellent quality clock made by Smallcombe about 25 - 30 yrs ago.  

The movement can be silenced at night or any other time by adjusting a push rod that is located inside the clock and behind the pendulum door.  You may be able to see this adjustment rod from some of the pictures that have been uploaded.

The dial has a fully functional moving moon.  The dial is in excellent condition!

This clock is very attractive and would enhance any home - also standing at an height of 75" it would fit in any home!

The width and depth of the clock where it meets the floor is:

15.75"(W) x 9.5"(D)

 If you would like to come along and view please call me to arrange a suitable day and time to suit.
