HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
Wm. Gilbert Clock Co. “Vista”, ca. 1913. The Vista is 10.5 inches high in a Rich Gold Plate Finish, highly polished with beveled plate glasses all around. It has a porcelain dial with the Gilbert Visible Escapement and Patent Beat Adjuster; there are a couple of faint hairlines. The signed 8-day movement strikes the hours on a cathedral gong and the half-hours on a cup bell; it is running and striking as required. I think this guy looks pretty good for 106 years, don’t you? One sold at RO Schmitt’s in 2014 for $225. $175-$250.
