Antique American Clocks January 2022
Chauncey Jerome remote spring steeple, 1844-1850. A 22.5-inch sharp gothic case in mahogany veneer with the original dial glass and a period mirror. The flat dial has been varnished; the hands are original/period. The signed, 8-day time-and-strike movement has remotely mounted springs but is not a fusee. The label advertises “with steel mainsprings”. The wire gong is a replacement and not fitted correctly. The New Haven address on the label puts its manufacture in the late 1840’s. $175-$250.
