Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


120.     $200

Solomon Stow column & cornice, 1828-1834.  With the pineapple finials and claw feet this clock stands 30 inches tall; the pineapple finials are period if not original, the claw feet look like replacements.  The turned feet in back look original.  the half-columns and splat look to have been repainted some time ago.  The lower glass and tablet are original, with some losses to the tablet; the dial glass is either original or a very old replacement.  The wooden dial is clean and in good shape, the hands are unusual, old, and have been painted.  The wooden 30-hour time-and-strike movement is running and striking the iron bell without issue.  A decent but dark label inside.  This is a rare maker and I can find no comparables online.  $200-$350.
