Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


45.      $250

Sperry & Shaw fusee shelf clock, 1844-1851.  A second grain-painted shelf clock in the same style case, 20.5 inches tall, with a fusee movement and marketed out of New York.  Here both glasses are old and likely original, the tablet beautifully preserved.  The painted dial is signed and has a nice patina, the hands are period and likely original.  The time-and-strike fusee movement is unsigned, and I assume it runs 1 day; It is running and striking as expected. The label is tattered; there is an embossed pendulum bob.  Again a rare clock for which I can find no sales records.  $250-$500.
