John Birge double-steeple fusee, ca. 1848.  A second example of this double steeple with a remote fusee movement.  The 25-inch case has a clean, old finish with a couple of veneer repairs; the three glasses are period/original with the original tablets.  The cone finials look original.  The original dial has been repainted and is darkened and chipping again; the hands are replacements.  The 8-day, time-and-strike double-fusee movement will run for a while, the strike is slow but working.  The movement is again signed Birge & Fuller.  There is a good label inside.  $600$1000.
