Big Antique 1913 Gilbert Mantle Clock - Runs great - unusual vintage victorian adamantine clock - gothic key wind clock 8 day time & strike
This fabulous William Gilbert antique clock is much larger than it looks in the photos so be sure you have a large place to show it off. It holds a tiny golden victorian cherub at the top to protects home that it resides in. It was not uncommon to have an angel, lion or gargoyle at the top of these to keep the spirits away. . It has a very gothic feel to it and is so much nicer in person. It runs very well and has been cleaned and oiled and is ready to find a proper home. This has an interesting history. It came from an auction at sothebys and lived most of its life in a home where an international ballerina lived. She loved the chime sound of it and treasured it. With no family members to pass it onto, we were fortunate enough to be able to own it for the last 20 years. . The key and pendulum will arrive unattached to make sure the clock works are not damaged. The amazing sides are made of adamantine. This is a type of celluloid to emulate luxurious french clocks of that era. The wooden clock is very heavy and well made. You can see by the photos all the information on the metal and back door. It measures 17" long x a6" tall z 6" wide. This is a hard to find ( especially in working condition ) antique clock. Don't miss out at the last minute.

Because these are vintage estate pieces and are vintage and possibly pre-worn so they are not considered new from the factory….. Please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age.?………………. Sold as is and priced accordingly.. All jewelry ( unless otherwise specified) is considered costume jewelry. We don’t polish these previously owned well loved pieces so we can keep the original patina. We try and photograph all of the pieces next to a ruler so you can see the actual size. All jewelry sold as found.
We use the descriptions of any stones from the manufacturers titles when they were first produced. When we refer to the stones as moonstone or jade or garnet, for example, we are using how the original manufacturer of the pieces used them. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of a stone in a costume piece of jewelry. All pieces have been worn at least one time unless otherwise specified. Although the pieces we carry are unique and interesting they may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first purchased way back when.
Just click on our photos for more close ups to help you see all the cool detail on each piece.
I will be happy to combine shipping if you purchase from both.
