Antique 1890s Gingerbread Chiming Clock


The beautiful old clock was made in 1890s. It has an authentic brass clock movement that was made in the USA. The case does not have any name or identification on it so I cannot exactly pinpoint the year of manufacture for this clock. I can only tell by the style of clockworks in the clock. I am pretty sure the dial is not original but that would be really rare for this type of clock. However, the pendulum is gorgeous and appears to be original. The clock case is a smaller style for this type of clock during that era which is great for a mantel clock or parlor clock as it fits in without overbearing attention. The brass movement has been checked and serviced and the clock is running perfectly and keeping good time. This is a chiming/striking clock that counts the hour every hour at the top of the hour. The gong chime is a beautiful and rich tone.The winding key comes the clock and when the mainsprings are fully wound, the clock will run for approximately 8 days which was common on the very early clocks.The clock case is in great condition with the normal wear for being over 100 years. The front door has some reverse artwork in gold. It is a wonderful pattern that enhances the appearance of the clock. The hands appear to be original to this model clock. This clock is a rare find.What really gets my attention about this clock is its very pleasant tic-toc sound. It is wonderful.
