Here’s a beautiful old clock from the beginning of the 20th century. It has the spring-driven movement that you wind up with the included key. If you wind it up tight, it will run for seven days, keeping pretty accurate time over the course of a week. But as spring tension decreases, time-keeping will vary a bit. To make it run faster, you shorten the length of the pendulum by tightenening the screw at the bottom of it. Do the reverse to slow the movement down. It is set pretty well right now.
The clock is in good condition. The wood is beautiful. It has most of its case paper on the back. It has the original dial. The original painting in the window shows wading waterbirds in a marsh, with cat-tails.
This clock also features a built-in timer, with an alarm to tell the missus when her pie needs to be removed from the oven!
Somehow, the shape of this clock reminds me of one of those really fancy Chinese pagodas!
