Grandmother Clock



This clock is in excellent condition throughout - to be honest like new... very well looked after by the previous owner as seen by the pictures that have been uploaded.  If you require more pictures please do ask.  The clock is constructed from a mix of solid Mahogany and Mahogany finish.  I would say that it has been finished in a shade of dark Mahogany.  I would estimate the age to be around 15 -20 years.

The clock has an Hermle Bim Bam strike movement installed in excellent working order.  The movement strikes out the number of hours and strikes once on the half hour on a gong.  It is 8 day and weight driven on chains and has two heavy brass weights to power the mechanism both of which are in excellent condition.  The dial is also in exc condition.

By design the clock does not have a silencing device.  However if you are interested in the clock and would prefer a silencing device I will happily fit one free of charge.

The hood of the clock slides forward and away from the main body of the clock cabinet to make easy access the movement.  This is very handy for ease of pendulum removal and replacement etc.

The dimensions of the clock are approx:

71"(H) x  13.5"(W) x 9.25"(D)
Price £395
Bargain!






 




 

 Grandfather Clock

SOLD

Angela, Norfolk


This clock is made from Mahogany veneers and is in excellent condition apart from the odd minor imperfection here and there.  The clock has been very well cared for as seen by the pictures.  I have added a number of pictures of the clock but if you require to see further pictures please do ask.  The clock has been finished in a shade of medium Mahogany but please study the photos as flash photography can be deceiving!

The clock has a Hermle Westminster chime installed.   The movement has just been professionally serviced - that is, the movement has been carefully taken apart and cleaned properly and NOT re-oiled as some sellers tend to do.  The movement is therefore in excellent working order and will not require a a further service for at least 3-4 years.

The chimes can be silenced at any time by adjusting a push rod that is located in the waist of the clock.

The clock is powered by 3 brass heavy weights on chains.  The weights do have a fair few scuff marks and tarnishing but can be positioned on the chains such that the worst of these soiled areas are not seen.  In my opinion despite the condition of the weights, they are presentable.  The brass pendulum disc is in good condition as is the brass effect dial.

Access to the movement is via either of two removable side panels in the hood of the clock.  This makes for easy access of the movement.

The clock looks very traditional and would look great in any home.  The clock is priced to sell and is a bargain at this asking price.

Dimensions of clock are approximately:
84"(H) x 17.75(W) x 11.25"(D)

Hopefully you will be able to see the light scratch in the picture 






 Grandmother Clock


The clock is made mainly from solid Mahogany throughout and is in very good used condition. It has the the odd age related mark here and there but nothing significant.  There is a very superficial scratch on the side of the hood that i have tried to picture.  This is not easily seen.  In some lights it cannot be seen at all!  However as I am honest seller I feel that it is important to mention all the flaws.  As seen by the pictures the clock has been very well cared for by the previous owner. I would describe the clock to be a shade of medium Mahogany - please study pictures closely as flash photography can be very deceiving. I estimate the age to be about 35 - 40 yrs old..

The clock has an Hermle Westminster chime movement installed.  The movement has just been professionally serviced and so is in excellent working order.  Unlike some of the larger longcase clocks, the chimes are not too loud and therefore more tolerable eg., especially when watching your favourite TV programme!  However the chimes can be cancelled at any time by adjusting a push rod that is located in the waist of the clock.

The clock is 8-day and is weight driven on chains.  The 3 brass weights are soiled and do have scuff marks.  However the worst of these imperfections can be hidden by correctly positioning the weights on the chains.  

The brass dial is in vgc as is the pendulum disc but does have some tarnishing.

Access to the movement is via the rear of the clock.

The dimensions of the clock are approximately:

70.5"(H) x 14.75"(W) x 9"(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.

 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)
