The clock is all original. Very few of these were made and they were very expensive. Foster was a good friend of mine, and I remember when he first introduced this model 30 years ago. They were $3500 back then and you had to wait to have one made. If you don’t want to part with 50K + to buy an original David Wood Mass Shelf Clock, this one will certainly make you happy. The clock is die stamped “5” “81” which means it was the fifth clock made in 1981. Condition: Excellent given age, normal wear and use. Fret on one side has a hairline crack. Movement completely overhauled, runs strong, good timekeeper.
