DESCRIPTION
AND FEATURES

THE HERSCHEDE 10 IS
ABSOLUTELY THE FINEST TO BE FOUND, AND THE ONLY ANTIQUE CABINET CLOCK WITH BOTH
CANTERBURY AND WESTMINSTER CHIMES.

THE FRANK HERSCHEDE
CLOCK COMPANY HAD EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO THE CANTERBURY CHIME MELODY, AND FEATURED
THE CANTERBURY IN THEIR FABULOUS TALL CASE TUBULAR CHIME CLOCKS.

HERSCHEDE ALSO
PRODUCED CABINET CLOCKS WITH THE CANTERBURY, BUT NOT VERY MANY, SO WHENEVER I
FIND ONE I ACQUIRE IT TO RESTORE. THEY ARE QUITE RARE.

NOTE THAT THE
CANTERBURY CHIMES UTILIZES SIX NOTES, THEREFORE SIX CHIME RODS RATHER THAN
FOUR.

ALSO NOTE THAT THE
HERSCHEDE CHIME CLOCK NUMBER 10 STRIKES THE HOUR ON A SPLENDID THREE-NOTE-CHORD
AS OPPOSED TO ONLY A SINGLE NOTE.

TAKE A LISTEN VIA
THE E COMMERCE AUDIO PLAYER FILES AT THE BEGINNING OF MY LISTING.

TURN UP YOUR
VOLUME AND ENJOY THE MELODIES TO THE FULLEST.

ON THE EXPANSIVE ENGRAVED SILVERED DIAL FACE ARE THREE WINDING HOLES,
ONE EACH FOR CHIME – NEAR NUMERAL 4 – TIME – NEAR NUMERAL 6 – AND HOUR STRIKE –
NEAR NUMERAL 8.

THE QUARTER HOUR CHIME MELODY CAN BE SILENCED BY MOVING A LEVER NEAR
NUMERAL 3. IN THE SILENT POSITION, ONLY THE HOUR COUNT WILL BE SOUNDED.

THE SMALL HOLE ABOVE NUMERAL 12 PROVIDES ACCESS TO THE TIME ADJUSTMENT
SLOW/FAST.

THE CHIME MELODY – WESTMINSTER OR CANTERBURY – CAN BE SELECTED VIA
TURNING A SHAFT NEAR NUMERAL 5.
