I just bought a Spontini from a charity shop ( thrift shop in the US?) at a very reasonable price. It all looks very original, even down to what is probably the original key . I have never seen hands like this on any American clock - are they the correct ones?
Thank you guys - that’s a relief. Hands are so easy to damage when you have to set the time ‘from the front’ and I dread having to find the correct ones if they have been changed. Reference books on American clocks are thin on the ground over here and to get them sent from the US costs as much in postage as buying a clock! My last clock needed a book on Nicholas Müller to identify the metal front casting, so this forum is so useful to me. Thanks again.
