75.      $2500

Foster S. Campos “David Wood shelf clock” 1978.  A 34.5-inch walnut case with a beautiful, banded inlay around the hood and base, a banded border around the lower door with a burl panel holding an eagle with a shield. Elaborately carved fretwork at the top, with small brass finials.  The cabinet work is spectacular.  The painted metal dial is signed at the top, with fancy hands; the 8-day, passing strike movement is running, driven by a signed weight.  The case and door are stamped ‘2’, with the date stamped in as well.  Schmitt-Horan sold a near identical example in 2020 for $3400. $2500-$3500.
