Eureka Mahogany Sheraton Gothic case as found

This Eureka clock has three balls in the bearing housing and 40 teeth on the escape wheel (very rare) this gives the balance a oscillation of 3 seconds, (one and a half each way)  which translates to 20 contacts in 1 minute 1200 in 60 minutes and 10512000 in a year!!

ART-DECO ATO CLOCK

A fine example of an eight day triple fusee chiming bracket clock on matching stand.
The case is of oak in the Gothic style but much work is needed to restore this clock.
The massive fusee movement chimes on a series of eight bells and strikes the hours on a gong.
It has an anchor escapement with a steel pendulum rod and brass bob.

The finished clock movement with the new parts fitted

A fine oak cased clock by Winterhalder and Hofmeier recently purchased by a customer at auction . Unfortunately this clock was missing most of its chiming parts  and this will add considerably to the cost of restoration. The missing parts included the fly, the warning wheel the gong pinions and hammers. These will all be made in the workshop.
