Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


22.      $175

Chauncey Jerome column & cornice, ca. 1845.  A 27-inch case with bright rosewood veneer in excellent shape and mahogany on the sides.  The two milk-glasses are likely original and in very good condition; the dial glass is also likely original.  The half-columns are grain-painted.  The wooden dial appears to be original to the case, the hands possible replacements.  The 30-hour weight-driven movement is signed Chauncey Jerome, New Haven, and is running and striking, driven by two old weights.  A Jerome-style pendulum bob and a very nice label inside.  This is an uncommon model; I found one sale at Schmidt’s in 2016 for $350.  $200-$350.
