Birge & Fuller double-steeple with wagon spring movement, 1844-1848.  A 27-inch case veneered in flame mahogany with cone finials and sitting on ball feet; the finish is clean and the veneer is excellent.  The three glasses are original, with worn frosted tablets, the lower glass badly cracked. The contoured dial holds the original paint with slight chipping and yellowing, the hands are original/proper.  The eight-day brass time-and-strike movement is clean, signed, and running, striking on a wire gong and powered by a wagon spring invented by Joseph Ives.  There is an old pendulum bob and a good label behind plastic.  $500Ė$1200.

Can I return my clock if I donít like it?


Absolutely!  Save your packing and box, you have 30 days from receipt to return it for a full refund if you are unhappy.  If the clock is not as described, or I missed something important and that is not evident from the pictures, I will refund your shipping costs (both ways) as well.  Find another auction company that does that!
