Antique Anniversary Clocks

These type of clocks are becoming more sought after now- mainly because they don’t require winding every week and they are nice to look at,( being made of  brass ) and also they’re relatively  inexpensive compared to the modern plastic quartz clocks found in the High Street today.

I have, under repair one1906 jfk  Silver plated six pillar tholos-style cased clock which would make a very nice Silver Anniversary  present!
Also a Kaiser with revolving moon and a sphere representing the world which rotates with the turn of the pendulum. Both of these clocks are now repaired and appear below.
