Chanced upon this clock a couple of weeks back….and it has been on my mind ever since. I grew up with a similar sort of wind up clock…and I find the chime very comforting. Unfortunately, i can’t bring the clock over to the new home…and a similar make (german) like dad’s will cost about $2,000. Out of my budget. This fella was tucked in a quiet corner…and I didn’t even know there was an antique shop at Alexandra. Very pleasant surprise. After sleeping on it for ages…I set myself a price for the clock…and told myself if the guy agrees to that reduced price…it is meant to be, and i will get it.
After much haggling…he agreed!! He is going to give it a nice clean….teach me how to care for it…and it can come home with me. Very excited. I find it really unique…not quite like the other mini grandfather clocks out there. It has a hourly chime, and it was made in Japan.
Ignore the wire in the picture…that is from another item.
