Large Antique Chess Clock Numancia - Wood

Description
Large Antique Chess Clock Numancia - Wood
Spain

This very large chess clock is of an unknown brand. There are no stamps or markings on the clock that say anything about the origin, the only thing is the indication "Foreign" at the bottom of the dials. The dial shows the name of chess club SV Rook from Numancia.

The mechanism of the clock does not work in either of the clocks, unfortunately. Left works for about 10 seconds and then stands still, right sometimes runs for 1 second. A hobbyist or clockmaker will know how to fix this, but even without functionality it is a sought-after piece among collectors.
The house of the clock is in good condition, with minor signs of wear. The back of the house is missing.

What also makes this old chess clock special is the small wooden ornaments around the house of the clock, see detailed pictures.

The clock measures no less than 26 cm x 6.5 cm x 16 cm. The weight is 1.0 kg.

The chess clock will be packed with much care and sent by registered mail.
