Waterbury Clock Co. “Galway”, ca. 1883.  Well, this clock doesn’t look right, but it is.  The Galway is 36 inches tall in walnut with a good, polished finish, an old glass in the door, an old painted dial, and a proper Waterbury pendulum and bob.  I believe the fancy finial at the top is a replacement, well done; the hands are also replacements. The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed and running, striking on a nickel bell.  There is evidence of a label on the back. There are three listings of this model in the Antique Clocks Price Guide over the last 20 years, and one sale on LiveAuctioneers; the most recent was at RO Schmitt’s in 2011 for $550.   $250-$500.
