    Anno Sawtooth.JPG Black Slate & malachite 1.jpg French Comtoise.JPG

    We've been buying again! It's a disease! The 1st is an Anno Sawtooth, 2nd French Japy Freres Slate and Malachite and the 3rd a French Comtoise from the Province of Auray in France. We also managed to pick up a Harding and Baseley rolling ball clock. Going to need a bigger house soon to put all of these into.

    There is always room for one more. It just takes a little rearranging. I like them all, but I really like your French slate.

    the saw clocks are not easy to keep running , the french marble clock is exquisite and the comtoise looks to be last period,i.e. from 1900-WWI A good haul!

    The Anno stops quite a bit but our other one above runs really well.

    This is the Harding and Bazeley. Not a great lot to see running...drops a ball every so often and you manually need to feed them back in. The weight of the balls winds the mechanism.

    with the saw clocks there are several ways of interaction between the pendulum rod and the anchor,some more prone to stopping than others.Besides cleaning this point needs special attention . The saw rod needs a verry little oil where the skid glides on the plain side . They´re fun to look at!
