677.           $75

English shelf clock, ca 1923. The mahogany case is 13 ½ inches tall, clean as a pin and highly polished. It has round bun feet, brass bezel with convex glass and brass sash with silver dial and original hands. There is a presentation plaque on the bottom indicating it was given to a retiree in 1923, hence the date of the clock. Of course, it could have been made much earlier. Full wood back door with latch. The brass movement runs 8-days and strikes on a standing gong. Pendulum is correct for the movement. $100-$200.

706.           $100

“Eureka Clock Co. Ltd. / London / 1905”, signed on the movement plate of this rare electric clock. It comes with a wood base and glass dome but the clock sits freely under the dome and not attached to the base. It takes two C batteries placed underneath the base, to run the clock. The one-piece porcelain dial and hands appear to be original. Extra holes on the brass base are above my pay grade to describe as I know next to nothing about electric clocks. The clock by itself is 7 ½ inches tall, with dome and base it is 10 inches high. $100-$250.

707.           $200

Austrian mantel clock with a movement that is seldom seen anymore because it has a silk thread suspension. Probably dates back to the mid 1800’s, or earlier. And yes, the light weight pendulum swings on a small section of silk thread. The 3-day movement is running and strikes half hours on a coil gong. The 18-inch-high wood case is covered in some variety of a beautiful veneer. On the veneer are several brass ornaments. The columns are onyx. The dial ring is porcelain with a few hairlines, has a brass inner dial and original hands. There is a bowed glass in the sash and a super brass pendulum bob. I did not see any makers signature but I did not pull the movement to inspect since it was running so well. I figured I would screw it up. $300-$500.

709.           $100

French, 3-piece garniture set, ca 1900. Movement is signed, “Selsi / France”, and the porcelain dial is signed, “France”. The onyx and brass case is 14.5 inches tall and the two side pieces are 9.5 inches tall, all three pieces in excellent original condition. The original porcelain dial is bowed, brass hands are bowed to fit, all are original. The sunburst pendulum is original and the front and back sashes are nicely and securely fitted. The movement was running but appears to be out of beat slightly. The 8-day movement is typical French, round with nickel bell attached. $200-$350.
