Item Details


this is a novelty falling ball / falling gravity clock
 the clock works by its own weight , it is fixed to the back plate by a recoiling suspension strap and the weight of the body of the clock makes the clock tick , when it has run its full course which is 8 days and the length of the back board you just lift the ball and the suspension strap recoils back into the movement ( like a pull cord on a petrol lawn mower )
 it is in working order running fine with a clean even beat  but it is being sold as spares or repairs as it has been standing for a long time and will more than likely need a service , also part of the top finial is missing , this does not stop the clock from working in any way its just decoration
 the globe is made of brass with a silvered and engraved dial , you can tell the time by the mermaids tail which acts as a pointer , quite a complicated looking movement which is running on a platform escapement , with heavy solid gears 
 the backboard is mahogany with brass plaques and hanger 
 globe measures a total of 12.5.cm in diametre and the back board measures some 75.cm long , the whole lot weighs in at over 6kg 
 free uk postage you are also more than welcome welcome to collect from ilkeston derbyshire
