Auction Find: Antique Gilbert Gingerbread Mantle Clock

     I Went to a auction with lots of antique & vintage clocks.  This particular clock is a Gilbert Gingerbread Mantle Alarm Clock.  This beautiful Victorian Era Clock was a great find! 
     The Gilbert Clock Company was in business from 1828 until 1964, during that time it changed hands many times over the years but always produced high quality clocks.
     This clock is super clean, it has an oak finish, it is considered to be gingerbread style,  it chimes on both the hour and the half hour, the alarm works and the keys are included.
     This beautiful Gingerbread Clock is 24" tall, 15 1/2" wide and 5" from front to back.  The workmanship of this clock is just a beautiful form of art.
     At a $100 purchase price I'm sure to make a good profit on this antique Gilbert Clock.
