One of the cherubs on the front will chime one bell for quarter, two bells for the half hour and 3 bells for the quarter to hour. Each quarter hour chimes are followed by the other cherub who hammers the anvil with a different tone bell ringing the hour. This clock has a Black Lacquer case. While it is very lovely, I do not believe the case to be original to the clock.
THIS CLOCK IS SILK THREAD SUSPENSION! This Animated Clock has been completely worked through by a clock professional and runs great for its age! It comes with the original key which winds 2 of the clockwork mechanisms and a separate vintage key for the other one. It also has the original pendulum.
The face of this clock has two gorgeous gold cherubs that are animated with beautiful and intricate detail and design and a white border with Arabic Numerals. There is also beautiful brass intricate floral and cherub design pieces on each corner.This clock also has a sturdy hinge, and the original convex glass cover. This clock that been serviced by a professional clock expert and runs great. Measures are approximately 11 wide at the base x 13 ½ tall x 8 deep.
