Forestville Manufacturing Co. ripple-front steeple, 1842-1849. A 20-inch ripple-front sharp gothic with two period/original glasses, the tablet showing JC Brown’s home in Bristol, CT. Surprising little loss to the decalcomania image. The flat metal dial has been repainted, the hands period/original. The dial is held in place with a wooden strip across the bottom. The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed and running and striking on the wire gong. The alarm is not hooked up and not tested. A very good label inside. These are currently selling for around $600. $450-$650.
