We have received many requests for additional info on this clock. The clock runs, I have not verified it’s accuracy. The bells seem to strike corrctly, though I have not run it through a 12 hour cycle. The serial number is 150826. The same number is on the bottom of the wood base. There is a split in the mahogany back of the base, it is concealed by the bronze base, visible if you look at it from the back. The metal surface is in good, apparently untouched, condition. I assume the engraving WHD is a former owner. Shipping is handled by a 3rd party, call Steve Mahan, Mailing Services Plus at 610-692-9425, e-mail is [email protected]
