Antique American Clocks January 2022
Terry & Andrews Four post steeple, 1842-1850. A 19.5-inch four post steeple with good rosewood veneer all around; a couple of the finials have lost their tips. The dial glass is old, the frosted tablet a modern replacement, but correct for this type of clock. The contoured dial has been touched up and the numbering strengthened, the hands are likely original. The standard T&A lyre 8-day time-and-strike movement is signed; it will strike but only run for a minute or two. There is an alarm that winds at the bottom, it was not tested. Both strike on the iron bell. There is a very poor label, very dark and tattered, behind plastic. I could not find any other T&A four post steeples that had sold on either LiveAuctioneers or the Antique Clocks Price Guide. AAC sold a Brewster & Ingrahams four poster last summer for $426. $250-$500.
