Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


243.    $250

Chauncey Jerome lever box clock, ca. 1850.  An interesting style that may have been made for export to England; there is only one sale of this model that I can find, at RO Schmitt’s two decades ago for $975.  The 11-inch walnut case has veneer on all four sides with a handle on top; there is ripple molding around the base and a push-button for the bezel. The painted dial and hands are original (as is the handle on top).  The signed (Chauncey Jerome, New Haven), 8-day time-only movement will not run; the lever spring is good.  A little attention should fix it.  Shreds of a label on the bottom. An unusual model.  $250-$500.
