Waterbury Clock Co. eight-day parlor clock, ca. 1880.  A 31-inch case veneered in rosewood with a clean finish and just one chip on the left side of the base.  Both glasses are period/original, with the stencils having been rebacked.  The period painted metal dial is clean with some fading; the flowers in the spandrels suggest that this dial may not be original to the clock, as the dial glass provides the spandrels.  The hands are period.  The 8-day time-and-strike movement is signed Waterbury and is running and striking, driven by two replacement 8-day weights.  There is a good label inside; a near identical example is shown on page 425 of Lys Waterbury Clocks & Watches, Vol. 1.  These are pretty clocks.  $150$300.
