The graceful lines and beautiful, detailed carving throughout this clock add to its elegant appeal, while the unique silver painted finish is captivating. Reminiscent of mercury glass, there is a unique dimensional quality to the painted finish that captures one's attention and highlights the carved features as well. The clock case was built in the 1840's, while the silver paint has been recently applied in the past 10 years.
The original clockworks can be restored or we will have a battery function installed for ease of use. We always leave choice regarding the type of clock function to the discretion of the individual buyer, but when shipping out of state recommend the battery function due to sensitive clockworks being subjected to movement in shipping. Please inquire regarding timing of installation.
