Antique American Clocks January 2022
Upside-down skeleton clock, ca. 1990’s. With the glass dome this clock stands 23 inches tall on a slate stand that supports the dome and a marble base for the brass clock. The clock was made in China, although the porcelain dial says “Huguenin a Paris”. The clock itself is the pendulum, with an inverted crutch held between two arms on the back post. It is running, probably for 8 days; there is a large key included. There is a chip out of the marble base on one side and a small factory repair to the slate stand; there is glue around the brass ring on the marble base that could be removed. This same model sold at Fontaine’s last fall for $500, and it had lost the inverted crutch and would not run. $250-$500.
