HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS                             JULY 2019


729.          $1000

Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. “No. 11 Regulator”, ca 1891. You will not have to hide this 50” high walnut clock. It is clean and polished, and ready to hang and enjoy. If it hung in a house where there was coal smoke, this clock does not show those signs. Original putty around the side glasses, door glass probably a replacement. There is considerable detailed woodwork on the case and it is all original and complete. The only thing about the clock that may need some explanation is the delicate woodwork on top of the case. I checked back thru past auctions and noticed that the tops on the Gilbert 11’s I have sold were not all the same. In Ly-Gilbert two No. 11’s are pictured and the tops are different. One thing I have learned in 50 years of selling clocks is that all models of a clock are not necessarily the same. I have extra pictures of No.11 tops so you can check yourself. The movement is original to the case and there is no evidence it has even been messed with. The weights, pendulum bob, wood stick, three hands, two piece signed dial, and coil gong appears to be correct and original. In the No. 11’s I have had previously both cords went to the top right of the case, one came down, the other went across the case top then descended. In this one each weight goes straight up to the rollers on each side of the case. Ly-Gilbert #353. $1200-$1500.
