199.    $100

Small German/Austrian two-weight wall clock, ca. 1870.  The walnut case is 16 inches tall with carved trim and gilding.  Close inspection suggests that small finials may be missing from the top and bottom corners.  The dial glass is old, the dial repainted, there are trefoil hands.  There is a wooden slat movement that is running and striking on a wire gong on the hours and half-hours; this is a 30-hour clock.  Part of a label on the back, but I canít determine the maker. The pendulum and weights may or may not be original to the clock.  Cute, nonetheless.  $100-$250.
