Comes with original Ingraham Signed KEY and instructions on Clock care and set up.
Please view all photo Carefully for more description. All 100% original with only one back panel screw replaced with an early brass screw. Brass ornament nails are all original, but I will supply a small supply of extra replacement brass nails should any fall out or get lost during your ownership since I happen to have some in stock (these are the nails that hold the ornate decorative brass and green marble columns in place).
But FYI, the nails presently in the clock are all original to the clock. (circa 1905), so no worries. This is an Estate item. It is in Original Working Condition with the original E. Ingraham signed Key, It is in Very Good Condition.I cleaned wood & surfaces, then oiled gears thoroughly using clock oil, adjusted the bell chime to the correct number of strikes matching up with the hour hand, wound it up lightly (not fully wound) tested it for 48 hours. Results: Clock ran accurately to the minute for 48 hours then stopped as I assume it needed rewinding again. During the test, chimed with proper & accurate rings on the hour, and bell struck once on the half correctly as it should. Had no problems at all - it's a nice clock! Be sure when running, the clock sits on a flat level solid surface because it has a low level pendulum so needs a flat surface to maintain the swinging , and just a small bum could stop its swing, and it will run perfectly and not stop.
When setting time, just move the minute hand to the correct time (but stopping at the 12 each time to allow the clock to strike on the hour before continuing on to the next hour). Or just wind & start the clock when it reaches the time shown on the clock.
Has nice deep clock strike tone on the hour, and a soft single bell ring on the half hour. Clock exterior gold pins are secure and original. If they do loosen, you can push or tap them back gently in to be secure or glue them in permanently.Dimensions : Measures approximately 17.5" Wide X 7" Deep X 10.75 Height (inches). Materials: Housing is made of Wood with bronze leaf cast metal decorations & feet with brass/ iron / steel internal clockwork parts, brass metal & glass face.
