  24. I forgot to mention that it does chime on the hour and half hour. The chime coil is large.
  25. The clock has a opening cut out of the bottom near the front of the clock that is about 4" which makes me think that it was mounted on something that fit in that slot (you can barely see it in the for...

  33. pw-collector, good luck Dave.
  34. Is it the 2 inch or the 5, I have a copper one, and an Ivory one both with boxes and tags. I also have a blue 2 inch one without the box.

  45. It even has the magic eye feature that helps to tune it.

  47. Harold Berman was an extended hobbyist, he had no art certification and his books are riddled with errors, Heritage Auctions say they only use his books for the illustrations but warn they could be wr...
