Silas B. Terry double-wind 30-hour steeple, ca. 1850.  A very rare steeple from the master of horological innovation, here a single-arbor double-wind, time-and-strike 30-hour steeple.  The clock winds in only one direction but it winds both the time and strike chains.  The 20-inch case is veneered in flame mahogany with four cone finials and two original glasses, the frosted tablet is in good condition.  The wood dial is also in good condition with the original paint and likely original hour hand, with a replacement minute hand.  The brass 30-hour time-and-strike movement is unsigned; it is running and striking without problem. There is a stained and tattered label inside with Silas B Terry at the top.  AAC sold a similar example in 2021 for $4250.  $500–$5000.
