Antique American Clocks January 2022
English fusee octagon drop, ca. 1890. A 26-inch wall clock with mahogany veneer, a 12-inch painted metal dial and a time-only fusee 8-day movement. The heavy nickel bezel has come unsoldered from the hinge and will need repair; the thick glass is probably original. The movement is unsigned but well made, typical of English fusee movements. There is a typical heavy English pendulum; the clock ticks only for a minute or so. The latch on the bottom door has been replaced. With some effort this would be a nice English wall clock. $150-$300.
