ANTIQUE GILBERT AND CO SHELF CLOCK
Age. More than 100 years old
Composition. See below
Size. 13” high x 10 ¼" wide x 4 ½” deep
Comments. Circa 1800s shelf clock was made by the Wm. Gilbert Clock Company of Connecticut. It has a wood case which has veneered panels, a painted over tin dial face, brass gears and a two – panel glass door one of which has a vintage decal. The clock reports the hour but the hands need adjustment to synchronize this event. The woods finish has wear, shade variations and a few small scratches/scrapes. The clock is in sturdy shape with no apparent breaks having normal use wear, has some wood wear, there is a few small chips in the veneer, it is missing some of the paint on the dial and has some soiling. The black paint on the doors bottom glass panel needs re-doing and it is missing the pointed end on one of the hands. The clock does not run continuously so we are selling this item as is. Need some work but when done it’ll make an impressive timepiece for the top your mantle or in your study.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
