My wife is going to LOVE it!
She said it stopped working after they moved it.
It was not perfectly level...
It's a beautiful piece of furniture and i have always liked them.
Next I am going to refinish my 2000lbs antique safe and put it against the other wall.
Nice Tic Tok billy......
What a deal.....
Wow! Nice indeed.
A few months ago my wife got a $2400 bed for $150 the same way.
We both just browse through all the Facebook personal for sale junk and sometimes hit the jackpot
Nice find, is it electric?
Nice Clock Billy !..................
No it's the real deal
Mechanical weight driven.
Shows the phases of the moon etc
Sorry just seeing the electric cord running behind it made me think that. Nice clock enjoy!!!
Nice score for sure billy. Wowser...
My uncle George who was a self taught master woodworker built a few of those for his kids, only out of cherry. The cherry came from trees he had cut and had sawed into lumber and dried. He got the movements from some German company. In addition to needing to be perfectly level over a period of many years some of the brass shafts, gears, etc will develop a greenish colored waxy form of corrosion that required total disassembly, cleaning, etc. (pricey work) He built all kinds of stuff including some very sweet violins.
This came with the manual and it says wear gloves to touch the brass
I never find stuff like that. Do I need to friend somebody or something? My friends are buying guns and crap....all I see is used clothes!
It's about time that you got a great deal. Nice clock.
Been there done that! I used to accompany wife yard sailing. used clothes, household stuff, nothing of interest to me! No guns, knives etc.
Nice! That's the kind of item that if cared for gets passed on for generations. *thumbs up*
Some times gardening tools or classic fishing gear can be had.
Old Fly tieing kits, camping gear.
One time I bought a old shoe box containing two brand new unopened packets of guitar strings, a few picks and other things (tuner with corroded batteries, was able to get it working) for $7
A Yamaha Tenor recorder for $10.
Nice find! I have about thirty old clocks with 20 working, all found at estate sales, flea markets and yard sales. Drives my wife nuts, did I mention they all chime, chirp or cuckoo.
I assume when I die, someone will score a heck of a deal on a tool collection of made in the USA tools I have collected over the last 37 years. And my daughter will buy a worthless Chinese "designer" handbag or something with the money.
Cool clock Billy!
If you can't get it running yourself, billy, bring in a clockmaker to get it going again. They are not easy to find, but they will be able to get your clock running.
One thing I still wish we hadn't passed up at a NYC auction back in the 1980s was a cherry cased Art Deco grandfather's clock. We had nowhere to put it, no way to move it, but it was SO beautiful!
