60.             $450

Brewster & Ingrahams round gothic with cast iron cups, 1846-1852.  A second example of this uncommon model.  The 19-inch mahogany case has a beautiful finish with flame mahogany on the front.  The dial glass is original, the frosted lower glass a modern replacement.  The dial is wood, rounded on the face and with some chipping; the hands are likely original.  The signed 8-day, time-and-strike movement is running and striking on a wire gong; there is a good label advertising this as a “repeating brass clock”, meaning you can pull down on a wire inside to make it repeat the last hour strike.  $450–$700.
