8062 Welch, Spring & Co. “Verdi” wall clock.
This clock is in superior, original condition. It will be hard to find one with a nicer case. Usually these models have a significant amount of veneer damage and lifting but this clock is nearly perfect. It has a very clean, original finish and is ready to put on your wall. Usually the gold trim on the lower door has been lost due to cleaning but on this example there is very little loss.
The dial paint is original, clean and the numerals are very crisp. There is just a bit of paint loss at the center arbor. It has the original hands and a great pendulum which has never been polished. The bezel is brass and both glasses are the originals. It also still retains the black flocked paper behind the pendulum.
This is an eight-day clock with hourly strike on a resonant gong and there is a separate seconds dial. This clock was recently professionally cleaned and serviced and is running very well.
30 ½ inches tall. $345.
8078 Fine Gilbert jeweler’s “Regulator No. 9”.
This is a great looking clock with the bonus of having a solid cherry case with a burl walnut center panel. It was refinished a number of years ago and it has a very nice color. There are a few spots on the case that have a bit of old finish and a small spot of wall paint but overall it is in very good condition. The only case faults are the two small drop finials that are missing from the bottom front.
The porcelain dial is perfect without one chip or hairline. The hour and minute hands are the originals while the center sweep seconds hand is a perfect replacement. The side glasses are original and the door glass has been replaced. The pendulum is original, the 8 inch diameter brass bob has never been polished and it is perfect without a single dent or scratch. The weight and pulley are also the originals.
The movement mounting frame is stamped “W. L. G C Co.”
This is an 8 day clock with a heavy brass movement having maintaining power and a deadbeat escapement. It was recently professionally serviced and is in good running order. This will make a very impressive clock for that special spot in your home and it will be a precision timekeeper as well.
6 feet 6 inches tall. SOLD
