Chauncey Jerome cottage, 1845-1850.  A 12-inch box case in walnut and walnut veneer with a full door glass and an overhead suspension pendulum. The reverse-painted glass is in good condition – note the red berries on the floral strands.  The dial pan is a modern brass sheet with a glossy paper dial and replaced hands.  The presumably 30-hour, time-only, brass movement has a brass spring that is wound tight and needs to be relaxed to run; note the overhead suspension spring and early pendulum bob (probably a replacement). The movement is signed “Chauncey Jerome New Have Conn USA.”  There is no label.  Not a bad looking example, despite the replaced dial.  AAC sold one in 2022 for $150.  $50–$250.
