An Outstanding Grandfather’s Clock
I have started with a face of the clock as the detail on it is so wonderful! I would say it is cast iron by the weight, but I have never seen cast iron done in such fine detail. Rather than describe all of the detail, I think you can see it all in the photos. The detail is on all four sides and is so intricate. I especially like the lion’s head that appears at the bottom of the clock on three sides. The scroll work is magnificent and the corner posts look just like carved wood. This is a working clock with dials to move the hands on the clock etc. It is all ORIGINAL including the working mechanisms. The pediment is made with great precision and has depth to it, as does all the embellishments on the clock. This would make a great first impression in a grand hall of your dolls’ house!
