625.                $50

B.B. Lewis “Perpetual Calendar Y Mechanism” reproduction.  Lewis patented three forms of this mechanism, which were used by Elias Burwell, and later by Lewis & Son, in L.F & W.W. Carter calendar clocks and Welch, Spring & Co.  My consignor tells me this example is a reproduction and it appears to function correctly, although not tested in a clock.  $50–$100.


626.                $25

Tall case clock movement and dial. A standard 16-inch tall by 12-inch-wide wooden dial that has been lacquered and subsequently yellowed.  No signature, but the small scene in the arch is like those found on clocks by Hoadley from the early 1800’s.  Note that it is off-kilter.  There are filled winding holes, filled seconds bit and calendar dial holes, and filled mounting holes, indicating that this dial has been used with another movement.  The false winding holes suggest that it started out with a pull-up wooden movement.  The hands are thick iron and probably later issue.  The wooden slate, 30-hour, time-and-strike movement has brass gears and pivots and may be of Pennsylvanian German make.  It is missing the bell on top and a pendulum rod and was not tested.  No weights. $25–$100.
