I would suggest having the clock serviced, cleaned and balanced if you are purchasing this to keep accurate time. I have not wound the clock nor do I know when it was most recently wound. I don't know the proper way to wind this clock either. I simply pushed the pendulum after rehanging it, and the clock has been ticking away since.
I did test the key to be sure it actually fit the pins. The clock measures approximately 11 inches tall x 7 inches wide x 5 inches deep. All beveled glass windows on four sides are in excellent shape as pictured. Both doors open and close well.
Shows aging and patina on brass surfaces. I did not polish the brass or attempt to clean the clock in any way.
Porcelain clock face is as pictured with some minor wear around the key holes. This must have occurred sometime before I acquired the clock. Overall the face is in amazing condition.
I have not fully tested this clock. I have not had the clock looked at by an expert. Please message me if you have questions.
