To anyone out there bidding on item 360283903142 the art deco figural clock, please be aware that the item is damaged which the seller has not detailed within their listing.  I enquired and also mentioned that they should in fact detail the damage, but as yet, they havent, so be warned if you have your eye on this item

Thanks, I am always suspicious when no mention of condition is made.

Shame because it is a really lovely piece.

I sent the seller a request for more pictures. It will be interesting to see what he says.

Took me longer than it should have to figure out what 'fiuries' were too.  Can you tell us what the damage is?

As you might all know it's a Walther RELIEF clock - still in better condition than mine  :cry:  :pb:

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Yes damage should be disclosed but it is rare such things are undamaged - too much handling for winding plus dusting.

actually as I don't actually know what the value would be, what would be a reasonable amount in £ to go up to without outbidding it's value?
