Japan Wall

Catalog Description:

C.1925, Japanese, Hotel Regulator, in good condition, with some restoration. Patterned after large American wall regulators that sold successfully, this design gives you a lot of "Look" for the dollar, and the quality is nicer than similar large clocks imported from Asian companies today. The oak case has nicely detailed carvings (removable for shipping) around the dial and on the base, and retains its original finish that has been nicely waxed. The 8-day Ansonia type movement (Asian copy) is clean and running, strikes the hours on a coiled wire gong. Unfortunately the original dial got damaged and someone pasted a new paper dial to a piece of pressed wood, and glued it into the oak bezel. To make servicing the movement easier, they added top hinges to the bezel; you simply remove the hands and lift the bezel for access. The consignor paid $1100 for this clock, being reassured by his local auctioneer that it was American. Height 53"
