Antique American Clocks January 2022
Forestville Hardware & Clock Co. sub-miniature steeple, 1853-1855. A very rare clock from a short-lived company presided over by J.C. Brown. The walnut and rosewood case is 12.5 inches tall with two original glasses, an original painted metal dial with some touch-up, and proper period hands. The dial shows age cracks and staining, the frosted tablet shows some wear. The 30-hour time-only, pinned movement is unsigned and running fabulously. The label is in outstanding condition. Only two sales records on LiveAuctioneers, for $750 and $850 in 2015 and 2014, respectively; AAC sold one without finials last summer for $1000. $750-$1000.
Can I return my clock if I donít like it?
Absolutely! Save your packing and box, you have 30 days from receipt to return it if you are unhappy. If the clock is not as described, or I missed something important and that is not evident from the pictures, I will refund your shipping costs (both ways) as well. Find another auction company that does that!
