My wife's Christmas present to me was this Herschede Hall Clock, Pattern No. 146, in Mahogany. It has a Winterhalder and Hofmeier 9 tube movement and is fitted with Herschede's ornate three vial mercurial pendulum. The clock is in unmolested original, running, condition. It's 99 inches high, 29 inches wide and 18 inches deep. Negotiations with the owner, an estate, began in May, 2018, and the clock was finally purchased and picked up by me and my clock-guy last Saturday from a Victorian house where it had sat unmoved since 1963. The late owner's parents received the clock as a wedding gift in 1910, the year to which I would date the clock. It had the original key and winding crank. The original owners' grandson is an inductee to the baseball hall-of-fame, but the clock was obtained from the estate of that person's uncle. I have wanted a Herschede since I was sixteen. It only took 36 years for me to find the right one. It's a keeper, and so is my wife! The photographs were taken at the late owner's house.
