86.            $150

Atkins Clock Co. “London”, ca. 1870.  An 8-day model, the most common form, with good rosewood veneer (a few nicks here and there), original painted columns and gilded capitals and plinths, original glasses, tablet and dial surround, a repainted and antiqued contoured dial, replaced but proper hands, and an unsigned 8-day, time-and-strike movement that is running and striking as expected.  There is an alarm hooked up but not tested, and both strike on a cathedral gong that is a later modification.  A good label inside.  A classic from Atkins.  AAC sold one last year for $250.  $150–$250.
