Sold for £90
A mahogany quarter-striking mantel clock, retailed by Knight and Gibbons, London, late 20th century, the eight-day movement ting-tang striking the hours and half-hour on two bells and stamped Franz Hermle to backplate, the circular white Roman numeral dial with Arabic five minutes to outer track and inscribed Knight & Gibbons, LONDON to centre within an engine turned brass break-arch mask, the case in the George III taste with brass handle to the inverted bell top above arched brass grille side frets, on cavetto moulded skirt base with brass disc feet, 29cm (11.5ins) high excluding handle.
Movement is in clean condition however not currently running (escapement will beat a couple of times before stopping) hence a service will be required, the strikework is operating correctly. the dial has a few marks around the winding holes which should simply wipe-off. Front door glass is a little loose otherwise case appears free of signififcant faults. Clock unfortunately does not have a winding key.
