In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.

Zaandam Zaanse ZAANDAM CLOCK / ZAANSE CLOCK
The Zaandam clock, also known as the Zaanse clock or Zaanseklok, is a traditional style of Dutch pendulum wall clock that originated in the cities of Zaandam and Zaanse, located outside of Amsterdam in The Netherlands. The Zaandam clock is identified by its ornately carved oak, mahogany or walnut case, brass panels, the figure of Atlas holding the weight of the world on his shoulders at the top, and the motto Nu Eick Syn Sin, which means, To Each His Own.
Another popular traditional style of Dutch clock is the Frisian clock, or Friese Stoelklok, which is even more heavily decorated, customarily with hand-painted scenes of the Dutch countryside, a smiling moon face, or ships at sea that may bob back and forth in time with the ticks.
The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!

EuroLux Antiques. , Please note that EuroLux Antiques goes to great lengths to include information about the functioning of any clock we list under the 'Condition' section of our listings. This information, to the best of our knowledge, is accurate at the time of the listing. For clocks that are listed as being in FULL working order (i.e., clock runs, clock strikes (if applicable), clock chimes (if applicable)), we typically test them again for 24-48 hours prior to shipping to confirm the accuracy of those statements. The customer will be contacted prior to shipping if a clock is found not to be fully functional, if so stated in the listing, as defined above.
EuroLux Antiques provides a detailed leaflet about the functioning and care of vintage clocks with each clock that is shipped, whether the clock is fully functional or not. On occasion, stress during shipping and changes in the clock's environment can cause the clock to require a 'break in' period once the clock arrives at its destination.
EuroLux Antiques and EuroLux Imports, Inc. warrants that the clock is in the mechanical condition as stated in the listing at the time that the clock is shipped from our facility. We are happy to assist the customer getting a clock to resume functioning, as represented in the listing.
EuroLux Antiques and EuroLux Imports, Inc. provide no other warranties, express or implied, concerning the accuracy of time kept by the clock. Additionally, due to the nature of vintage clocks and our inability to control the clock's placement or treatment in the customer's home we cannot warrant the the future functionality of the clock after delivery and set-up in the customer's home. Any claim will be handled in strict compliance with EuroLux Antiques' Return Policy.
