    I purchased this clock as new in the 70's,it has the most wonderful deep sounding chimes on the hour and 1/2 hour.I don't know if "deep sounding " is the correct term to describe the sound of the chimes but this is all that comes to mind.I have taken one photo without a flash because of the glare on the glass.
    I think she is very pretty with her brass trim and pendulum but don't look too close because the brass really needs a good polishing.Other than that she is in prime condition and works like a charm.

      The clock is beautiful, and really in wonderful condition. I love some details of the face, such as the number 7 which appears as a combination of ´quotation´ and a ´tilde´ on top of it. This kind of details is fantastic!! It must be wonderful just to sit in front of it watching and lesson the chime!!

      Dottie, I´m sorry I should said ¨¿¨ in place of ¨quotation¨...

      Hi ChePibe
      Thanks for your comment and for loving my clock.That is so funny about the number 7,I don't know why I never noticed it after all this time.As I look at it now it looks like an upside down 2.Yes,I love the chimes,I find the sound very comforting where as some would call it annoying.Have a nice evening.

      Hi Dottie, it is funny how many things you can ¨see¨ in a clock dial face, it is like a figure from a Rorschach test!! Any way, there are two things that I like to pay attention when I watch a clock, first, the details of the clock dial face and, second, the design of the hands. Sometimes both of them are beautiful. Have a nice day!!

      Dottie, I did some searching on nubmer fonts and found that the numbering style is called 'French Script'. Just so you know.
    8. Dottie Dottie, 10 years ago
      Thank you Pop-abides,this is great information on the fonts that only a guy would notice( I myself never gave it much thought) but I'am sure it will be interesting to one of my sons when I hand it down someday
