Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. “Regulator No. 10, Hanging”, ca 1910. We seldom see this model, and have only seen a couple sell in 40 years. There was one sold in an east coast auction 15 years ago for over $5000, not nearly as nice as this near perfect clock. We have sold many Regulator No. 11 models, none as nice as this clock. Some may complain that the 53” oak case is too nice but we see no indications it has ever been overly cleaned or refinished. Perhaps polished or rubbed, but when you see no black in the multitude of grooves and carvings, you have to feel that it has been protected thru its existence. It came to us with the superb collection of clocks, and the collector said it was the one clock in his house that everyone tried to buy. Label on the back is mostly there. Accessories are brass and nickel bob, weight, pulley, beat scale, and dial rings. Two good glasses, one side glass has a crack, one held with the original putty, other two with new putty, colored over. Good wood stick, burl insert in the back board, repainted dial, three correct hands, and the original 8-day time only movement. If I were a Gilbert collector, this clock would not leave the house. Ly-Gilbert, page 135. $1250-$1500.
