Antique American Clocks                      January 2022

Nicholas Muller “Dove”, Casting No. 85, 1865-1876.  A surprisingly small Muller casting, 9.25 inches tall, featuring a dove at the top feeding its young over a grape vine.  The finish on the case is completely gone, leaving no traces that I can see.  The 2.5-inch dial is paper with some wear, the hands are replacements.  The 30-hour time-and-strike, lever movement is unsigned, probably made by the Terry Clock Co.  It is running and striking the bell on the back.  Arlyn Rath describes this model in her book, Nicholas Muller Horologist Extraordinaire on page 104, but I can find no sales records. $50-$100.
