Grandmother clock was a lucky find. I was at an estate sale and saw this old box under a table, which turned out to be a clock kit. It was an Emperor Model 100M kit purchased in 1971 by the gentleman of the house but was never removed from the box. The movement and most of the wood was in the kit. The movement had never been out of the box and was just like new.
The glue in some of the panels had cracked, some had a little water damage so I had to rebuild some parts but the important parts (crown, turnings & moldings) were all in good shape. All black walnut.
I gave $50 for the kit. Works great.
