S. Marti clock with thermometer, ca. 1910.  An ornately carved walnut case with a dark stain, about 35 inches long.  The convex porcelain dial is clean, with good numbering and no cracks.  There used to be a metal bezel with glass over the dial, but it has been replaced with a wooden ring and no glass.  The mercury thermometer appears to be porcelain, but I canít be sure, and it may be a modern replacement.  The unusual 8-day, round lever movement is signed Samuel Marti, with a medal stamp of 1900; it runs and strikes on the hours and half-hours on a nickel bell.  I canít find any comparable sales.  $150-$500.
