Tick toc, tick toc........... and so goes the clock.
As I have mentioned on my blog before, the people we bought our house from left several pieces of furniture. Well actually we bought some and they left some. But along with the amazing furniture, their realtor told our realtor that they wanted to leave us a gift.
The first time we toured the house, there was an antique clock on the stair landing.
My hubby greatly admired it, and made a comment about it. So when we came to close on the house, we were told that the owners had left us a gift. This clock! Wow we were so delighted. I am not sure of the maker, as we now have it on display on the bookcase in the living room. But we were told that it belonged to one of their grandmothers.
And low and behold when we came to the house after the closing, we not only found this clock, but TWO more!
The manufacturer is from Ithica NY.
This third clock is in very sad shape.
All of the insides are falling down, so it has to be treated very tenderly. On the back is a sticker that says "Fred's Grandfathers clock". Fred was the owner, and he was about 70 years old. I do not see a makers mark and I did not want to open the little door.
But thanks to the former owners we are on our way to a nice little antique clock collection :-)
