Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


254.    $100

George Marsh column & cornice, 1828-1831.  Marsh was actually in partnership with William Gilbert at this time in Bristol CT.  This 28-inch case is largely untouched, with gritty half-columns and a dark splat.  The dial glass is original, the lower glass has a picture behind a wood panel and may have been a mirror at one time.  The wooden dial is worn with loss of numbering, the hands are likely original.  The 30-hour time-and-strike wooden movement appears to have ivory bushings, as claimed on the label; it is running and striking without issue.  A very good label inside; two old weights and an old, embossed pendulum bob.  $100-250.
