This Miniature Antique Chelsea Yacht’s Clock is extremely rare and belongs in a museum. It should only be owned by a truly devoted collector who will appreciate it’s historical significance. What makes this remarkable antique so scarce, is its unusual size and age. It was manufactured by Chelsea of Boston, Mass, for Theodore B. Starr & Co, an exclusive silver dealer in New York City which was founded in 1877. Although Mr. Starr was primarily a silver dealer, he had an affinity for all things nautical. This notable antique is made of solid brass, is fully functional, and measures 3 3/4″ across the bezel, is 2″ deep, and the movement are only 2 5/8″ in diameter. It has been stamped with the companies serial #13490, on both case and movement, showing that this clock is in its original form. Take special notice of the exquisite hand engraved filigree on the heart of the clock, the escapement. The almost obsessive attention to detail, and deep respect for quality craftsmanship is what makes the Chelsea Co. the finest clock manufacturer in business today…We pack and ship worldwide…Please click photos below for better viewing…
