This solid mahogany grandfather or tall case clock was made by the prestigious Herschede Clock Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The serial number is 102 which indicates it was made around 1905. The clock is in remarkable condition. The prominent arched top has a wide, bold cornice and is supported by 2 large full columns. Notice all the original beveled glass on the front and sides. There is also a small door on either side of the top with a pierced carved decorative pattern on their fronts. The doors are for easy access to the clock works inside. The cabinet rests on a plynth base with suppressed ball feet. The front door retains its original heavy cast brass hinges and working lock with key. The brass clock face is intricately chased and has raised numerals of cast brass. There is a sweep second hand dial as well. Notice the painted moon dial. Originally, it rotated with the passage of time reflecting the varying phases of the moon but is no longer working. The original 8 day Herschede clock works has its original 3 weights, 5 tubes and pendulum. The clock comes with its winder. It keeps perfect time, striking a stanza of the Westminster tune every quarter hour and then striking out the hour after playing the full Westminster tune. The tubes are of superb quality resulting in a wonderful sound. The clock case finish is original and in exceptional condition having a deep, rich color and very desirable patina. The clock works are also in excellent working condition and have been cleaned and oiled. What a grand statement this will make in any home or office!
