Chauncey Boardman fusee steeple, 1847-1850.  A 20-inch steeple veneered in figured mahogany, with two old/original glasses and well-preserved decalcomania polychrome tablet.  The contoured metal dial holds the original paint with replacement hands; the signed 30-hour double-fusee movement is running and striking on a wire gong.  The label shows a retailer overpaste, in this case Daniel Pratt & Sons in Boston.  The overpaste label is included in an envelope.  $100-$200.
