Condition Report

Dial is dirty and has some minor hair cracks. Movement appears to be complete but is very dirty and requires clean, service and overhaul, no pendulum. The case is rather dirty but otherwise in good condition and appears to retain much of the original gilding and patination. No pendulum or winder.
