Antique American Clocks January 2022
Jerome & Co. gutta percha cottage, ca. 1860. A 16-inch cottage shelf clock in walnut with the black or ebonized trim edges. The glasses are old with two red gutta percha inserts with gold trim, and an oval sailing landscape painting in the tablet. The gutta percha is in excellent condition. The painted metal dial is likely original, the hands appropriate replacements. There is a 30-hour unsigned movement; it is running and striking a wire gong. The lower interior of the case is wallpapered, there is a good label on the back of the door. These are attractive little clocks that donít cost much. $100-$200.
