196.               $400

Unknown maker wood-front banjo, ca. 1840. A 32.5-inch case veneered in flame mahogany with a clean finish, carved side-arms, and a wooden finial.  The dial glass is a replacement, the metal dial was repainted some time ago and shows some soiling.  The hands are original/correct.  The movement is typical, unsigned, and is running; the brass pendulum bob is suspended on a metal rod and the banjo weight is iron.  A tin weight shield at the bottom, with the pendulum tie-down fitting lost.  This is a nice example of this style of early banjo. I can’t find any good sales records for a similar clock, so we’ll start at $400.  $400-$1000.
