Antique HEART SHAPED Porcelain BOX, ROSES & TASSELS 3-D-$43

Even after all these years I’m surprised when I find something this nice and this old just tossed in an old cardboard box full of nothing nicer than a padlock. But there it was – unharmed – among all the bits and pieces of nothing.

Authentic WAG ON THE WALL Antique CLOCK - Estate Find-$76

Once we start looking at pictures of this clock you’ll soon realize it’s not been touched in years. The problem is, what I know about old clocks could be written on the head of a pin, and there’d still be room for those angels to square dance – or whatever kind of dance they do.

 

The ebonized rim diameter is 9 ¾”, and the diameter of the reverse painted, or at least partially reverse painted, dial (with crack) is 6”. Each of the 7” long by 1 1/8” in diameter weights weighs almost exactly 2 lbs.

 

It’s a beautifully shape wood rim. I kinda wish it was a picture frame. At least I’d know something about it.

 

The hands are obviously original, but there’s that darned crack.

 

One of the sides was loose, so I took it off so you could see the guts.

 

The old lady’s family came over from Germany many, many years ago. Maybe that helps.

 

If you need some estate dust, there ya go. (We used to call it “DOA.” Dust of the Ages.)

 

There is one more thing I think I know for sure, probably.

 

The pendulum is homemade. Wouldn’t you think so?

 


It has a chime, but I can’t get the clock to do anything except tick like a raving maniac on crank when I remove the pendulum.

And one more thing: Each of the two chains is 68” long. Whew! That’s 5 ½ feet!
