Antique American Clocks January 2022
F. Kroeber Clock Co. “Regulator No. 32”, ca. 1881. A second small Kroeber wall clock, this one 33 inches long in a light walnut finish. The door glass is modern, the dial repapered and the center section is missing. The hands are correct, as is the bright and shiny pendulum. The 8-day, time-and-strike signed Kroeber movement is running and striking. There is a battered label and instruction label on the back behind plastic. The No. 32 Regulator is a hard one to find; only one sale on LiveAuctioneers, at Schmidt’s Antiques last spring for $700; no sales on Antique Clocks Price Guide. $450-$700.
