When I found this clock, it was sitting in a crate of items that had come from a basement at an estate sale. The globe was so crusted with crud that you couldn't even see the clock. This was at the tail end of the sale, and the lady in charge said "go ahead and fill up a bag for $5". I grabbed this clock, a Fenton Bowl, a copper bowl, and a few smaller knick knacks.
When I got the clock home, I found that the pendulum support fork was jammed down over the globe. I slid that up, and lo and behold, the globe started to pivot! I am slowly getting it in time, but I still can't believe how I found this!
