Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


268.    $150

Wm. Gilbert Clock Co. “Pendant”, ca. 1875.  A 34-inch walnut case with lots of patina.  The four finials are correct, the door glass is old/original, with a crack in the lower left corner.  The glossy paper dial is quite worn, the hands are correct.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed and running, striking on a brass bell.  The pendulum is quite dirty and needs a serious cleaning; it is as shown in the catalog illustration (Ly, Gilbert Clocks, page 131).  Schmidt’s Antiques sold one last spring for $450.   $150-$300.
