Waterbury Clock Co. “Regulator No. 1”, ca. 1875.  This is a surprisingly rare clock – there are no sales records in the Antique Clocks Price Guide or on LiveAuctioneers.  Horton’s sold this clock to the consignor in 2015 for $1280; Ly shows this clock in his book on Waterbury clocks on page 173.  The 34-inch case is veneered in rosewood and I would guess the bezel has been redone.  Both glasses are replacements.  The 12-inch dial is likely original and has been touched up; the hands are close replacements (as is the tablet).  The A-frame movement is signed and is shown in Ly’s Waterbury Clocks & Watches Vol. 2 on page 714.  It is a two-weight, time-only, 8-day movement also used in the Regulator No. 4 (Rosedale); it runs for a while and then stops.  The weight baffles are new, the weights and pendulum likely original.  No label. $750-$1500.
