Item:143230826812Heavy vintage brass Chelsea clock ships bell and holosteric barometer with 4-1/2 inch black-on-silvered dials and screw on bezels, both believed to date to the early 1970s. Both pieces measure 5-1/2 in diameter at the bezel and 3-1/2 deep. The glass on each is clear and scratch free. The clock keeps excellent time and appropriate chiming, and shows a serial number of 784042, which dates it to the 1970 to 1974 period. The clock has the original hang tag for "The Last Great American Clock" but no model, finish, movement, registration or purchase date information written inside. The key hanging from the clock back accompanied it when I acquired it, although I can't state with certainty that it is the original key. The barometer readings do appear to change, but I don't know enough about barometers to determine its accuracy. The barometer serial number is 9 72 4. I've not yet a reference source to help in dating, but the "72" would seem to suggest it is from and acquired at the same time as the clock. Last date of servicing on either the clock or barometer is unknown. Both brass casings need polishing, but show no structural damage. Combined prepacked weight: 10 lb. (Given their weight, these will be double-boxed by boxing each piece separately and then putting those two boxes inside a larger box to best ensure a safe delivery.)Condition:The clock keeps excellent time and appropriate chiming.
