Once in a while, a clock will surface in more or less original condition, with few apologies. This clock, while certainly not rare nor a highly sought-after form, has more than a bit of originality going for it. My daughter picked it up for chump change on the second day of an estate sale in Dallas TX. Appears to be the original finish on the case. A bit dirty, a bit crusty, some small veneer chips, but oh so nice to see one that some fair intentioned party has not stripped down to raw wood then tossed on a coat of this or that. Also, the glasses are both worthy of further inspection. The dial, hands, movement, weights, etc are all very good to excellent condition. The label is also in excellent shape, but no photo of that. The daughter has acquired several clocks recently, I fear she has acquired the malady. Don't know if I should feel good or suggest she seek professional help?
