Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


239.    $100

Vienna case with New Haven movement.  This is a nice 43-inch case with contrasting wood and carvings; unfortunately, it is missing its crest and the finials on the bottom are improper replacements.  The middle finial prevents the clock from lying flat against the wall.  All five glasses are old; the dial is new paper, the hands appropriate to an American clock; however, the winding ports do not line up well with the winding arbors, making winding difficult.  The movement is a New Haven Clock Co. 8-day, time-and-strike wall movement with an 18-inch pendulum specification.  It is running, striking, and importantly, keeping time.  Well, there are a lot of possibilities with this clock.  $100-$200.
