Antique American Clocks January 2022
F. Kroeber Clock Co. round lever 8-day, ca. 1900. Kroeber made several models of lever movement (marine) wall clocks but this one is not shown in Ly’s book on Kroeber clocks. It uses a high-grade Seth Thomas double-wind, 8-day, time-only chronometer movement also found in Seth Thomas Chronometer Levers, as shown with #242. The 8.5-inch walnut case has been adjusted to hold this large movement, making me confident that it is original to the case. It is running but a bit unsteady. The dial is worn paper, the hands likely correct, the seconds hand looks like a replacement. There is just a bit of label on the back, enough to see that it is a Kroeber clock. No sales records. $100-$250.
