That is due for a serious restore kick off this week. Its a very good instance of a mid Victorian cuckoo clock with twin automaters and an beautiful music field. Extra on this when its underway, nonetheless, check out the cylinder! I dont know what number of notes per sequence there are in all probability between one and two thousand at a broad estimate. Ive run it manually to have a hear and it feels like an orchestra taking part in one instrument.
What doesnt actually come over from the images is the dimensions of this factor. Its 2ft x 1ft if no more which supplies lots of scope for carving as you’ll be able to see. It is a large job because the mechanism is shot just about with all of the cams worn and now not doing their job. As well as there’s injury to the roof and construction so the entire case will want finding out earlier than every part of independently mounted mechanics can by synchronised. Like it!.
