Tiffany Ships Bell Clock
Sorry, This item is sold.
Item #: AC3003
Presented here is one of the most unusual both Tiffany Clocks and Ships Bell clocks you are likely to ever come across.
In our many many years as horologists, we have never seen another like this Tiffany & Company Clock or a Ship's Bell Clock, other than this single one offered here for sale.
It is an extremely solid and heavy clock, with a movement that is absolutely original to the case (the fit is perfect) and an original Tiffany.
The Case is Sterling Silver over Solid Bronze. The striking mechanism is 2 Hammers striking in turn on a single gong. The clock is a keywound 8 Day time and strike movement, and has its original porcelain dial, which is in perfect condition. It also has its original hands.
The beveled glass over the clock dial appears to be original as well, with all in excellent condition.The clock is in excellent running order, was recently oiled and cleaned and adjusted by a master clocksmith, and strikes well, and beautifully.
The silver over bronze shows some of the tarnish one would expect over the many years. We decided to leave the silver in its current state, and let the new owner decide whether to polish it, or possibly put a new sterling silver plating, like the original, to restore it to like new (we can provide the names of people expert in this field, if desired by the high bidder) if so desired -- a choice we prefer to leave in the hands of the collector.
This stunning clock's movement is French and is signed by the famous Samuel Marti, and is circa 1900. Without meaning to sound overdramatic, given that Tiffany made clocks in very very small lots during this time period, one may never see this particular model of clock for sale again.
