Brewster & Ingrahams early round gothic with cast iron backplate, ca. 1840.  An uncommon model with a cast iron backplate and brass springs enclosed in iron cups, and a repeating rack and snail strike.  The mahogany case has an old finish with some scuffing; both glasses are original with a good cut glass and frosted tablet.  There is a key in the ivory escutcheon and a working latch.  The original wooden dial with original paint shows some wear and is not securely mounted; the hands are likely original.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed and running with a rack and snail repeating strike on a wire gong on a brass lyre mount.  There is a good label inside. $450$600.
