Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


148.    $150

Chauncey Jerome miniature fusee column & cornice, 1844-1850.  Miniature Jerome Empire clocks are not uncommon, but I can find no sales records for a miniature with a fusee movement.  The rosewood case is 18.25 inches tall with the original grain-painted and gilded columns; the dial glass is original, the cut glass tablet is a replacement.  The painted metal dial has been touched up and the numerals strengthened, the hands are modified from another clock.  The 8-day, fusee movement is signed and running, striking on a wire gong.  There is a yellowed label inside.  $150-$300.
