someone local to me was going to trash this clock, so i made my husband and son pick it up...it has a few issues, but my favorite is that they had lost the original weights, found some weights at some point, or at least the shells..and filled them with sugar! very interesting, to say the least. if anyone could tell me what the silver piece of metal on the top of the movement is, i would really appreciate it. it looks odd to me. im also wondering if the rods are meant to be bent in the middle like that, because the chime/strike sounds pitiful at the moment..that, and where i might find replacement weights for this thing. it was absolutely filthy, the pendulum had been stabbed into the bottom of the case, i wiped it off and cleaned the glass to try and make it less pitiful.
