Daniel Pratt & Sons 8-day round gothic with alarm, 1853-1869.  Daniel Pratt was a retailer on Union St. in Boston in the mid-1800s; he bought movements and cases from various manufacturers.  This beehive case is 19 inches tall with mahogany veneer on the front, plain maple doors, and grain painting on the sides and dial board, giving it a striking appearance.  The finish is clean and it has likely been refinished.  Both glasses are period, the dial glass has been replaced/reputtied, the lower glass with a period tablet in good condition, although the color is faded.  The dial holds the original paint with minor touch-ups, and period hands.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is unsigned; it is running and striking on a wire gong.  There is a good label inside and an alarm on the lower left that is not hooked up.  A nice example.  $100$200.
