Mark Leavenworth & Co. carved column & splat, 1829-1834.  This company was formed when Mark’s son-in-law, Green Kendrick, joined the firm of Leavenworth & Son.  The case is 29.5 inches tall with carved pineapple finials, exquisitely carved half-columns, and a breathtaking carved eagle and ribbon splat.  Both glasses are original with the original putty; the tablet is original but has been touched up.  The wooden dial is clean and decorated with a vase of flowers below the mainstem and a strawberry in each spandrel. The 30-hour time-and-strike movement is running steadily but does not want to strike.  There are two period weights and a pendulum bob, with a good label inside.  Schmitt Horan sold a lesser example in 2021 for $425.  $400–$600.

I use the following bid increments to assign the final sale price.  If your winning bid is less than one increment over the second highest bid, you are assessed your full bid amount.

If you are the only bidder and you bid less than $250, you will pay your full bid amount if you are the winning bidder; if you bid more than $250, you will get the item for $250 or the minimum bid price, whichever is higher.
