    Westminster chime clock back home...

    After some weeks of repair and servicing my Black Forest Hall Clock with Westminster chime is back home. The only thing I have to do is to adjust the chiming mechanism (4/4) to get a full sound.

    Beautiful clock. Love the intricate dial work and the decorated weights.

    After re-centering the clockwork on its wooden base and re-adjusting the strikers for the hour (4) and westminster chime (4) it is finally working. A bit fast, so will have to adjust the pendulum's weight.

    Lovely blued hands, silvered dial and weights. Do you know the maker's name?

    I'm sure that case gives the chimes a delightful sound.
