Hi Everyone! My mother in law is moving and is looking to get a ballpark value for some of her clocks. Some were made by her father's company in the 60's or 70's I'm thinking. Any ballpark information would be super helpful. I don't want her to be taken advantage of because she doesn't know...
Thank you everyone. I went over to take more photos but I didn’t remove the movement. I expected to see tapered pins to remove the movement but I didn’t see any right away. I thought that I would ask you before I took it apart. Here are some more photos that I took. It has what looks like...
My mother in law has this Vienna regulator and asked me about it's value. I really don't know the market for these so I was hoping someone can help me with a ballpark figure. I don't think it's that valuable, but it is a nice looking clock. I haven't been to her house in a while...
Thanks Bruce, I think I’ll start with the goop first and see how it comes out. I don’t necessarily need it to look brand new. What issue do you see with the base? The urn is t bent as it looked in the first two pictures.
Can someone help me with the general value range for these clocks? If you know the model, that would be very helpful also. It is my mother in law's and I am going to overhaul it for her, but she was curious about how much it would generally be worth. Thanks!
When the clock goes in to warning, it allows the rack to fall the whole way down before it chimes. I rotated the gathering pallet a tiny bit to allow the rack to fall. that seems to have fixed the issue. It still chimes too fast, but my friend isn't as concerned with that part.
I was thinking something similar. I just popped off the gathering pallet and moved it so that the rack can fall all the way. Looks like it fixed this issue. the only issue that I see now is that the warning happens at 10 minutes to strike/chime and the strike/chime is five minutes early.
