A local event venue called Horsepower Ranch asked us to help refurbish this tower clock. We serviced the mechanism while they had the case refinished.
This clock is a Chinese copy of a double fusee clock.
This is an antique French floor clock. It is called a Morbier or Comptoise. It is about 200 years old. It sits in a large, decorative case that we left at our customers house. The use of removable steel plates with the gears running between them in one line is a unique trait of this style of clock.
We are frequently asked how new grandfather clocks arrive at our store. We received 2 today and took a few pictures of us un-boxing them.
