191.             $400

Early banjo, ca. 1830.  A 32-inch mahogany banjo timepiece of unknown (to me) origin with brass side-arms.  The flat dial glass is old, the throat original, the tablet repainted by Tom Moberg.  The iron dial is certainly original, with crackled paint, original hands, and no signature.  The 8-day movement bears no features that would allow me to identify it, but perhaps you can.  It is running, sensitively, driven by a cast iron weight.  There is a tin weight shield at the bottom.  $400-$800.
