I know nothing about all the clocks however I do know about condition and things associated with you approaching this clock so please let me do my best to explain what I see about this lovely clock. First of all, the face of the Clark is lovely and ornate and the patina is excellent.If it is all about the movement and face of these Gustav backer clocks This one is superb. The cabinet is also lovely. Please let me point out a few things I saw while photographing.
The upper piece is removable by design. However one of the top crown molding is on glued and will need to be re-glued. Also, there might have been a medallion or eagle Something like that on the top of the clock Its missing. I saw a arcing light scratch on the inside wood where are the pendulum swings back and forth.I think I got the scratch in the photographs so please look. I did notice a light scratch on one of the pieces of trim that is over the glass. Also, if you look at how the door rubs against the top board of the clock underneath, it shows rubbing where when the door is opened and closed. You cant see it from looking at it its all underneath. I think the cabinet is quite stunning.
It obviously is exactly as pictured. I also dont like to mess with things I dont know.My experience tells me to not mess with something of this nature. In my opinion, this mechanism is lovely. The entire clock is lovely. One day these Gustav Becker clocks are going to be highly sought after. They are quality that isnt being attained today.
They are craftsmanship and quality. I already have this clock packed. I packed it with great care. Fragile written all over the box.My only concern is the glass which I taped with masking tape. Also keeping anything that could break the glass away from the glass. Its big enough and heavy enough. I did not want to overcharge you so I packed this item prior to listing. That these clocks would need please expect a nice cabinet with minor light wear but overall very nice.
