Brewster & Ingrahams four-post sharp gothic (onion top), 1843-1852.  A 20-inch 4-post steeple with a clean finish, an original dial glass with the original putty, and a period cut and frosted-glass tablet.  The four ringed finials are perfect and perhaps not original, the dial was repainted and bears the makers’ signature; the hands are correct and likely original.  The ribbed, signed movement has two brass springs and is running, with some coaxing, and striking on a wire gong.  A good label inside behind the B&I gong and a plastic sheet. Cottone’s sold one last spring for $550, a typical price.  $400–$600.
