93.               $100

New Haven Clock Co. “Indus”, ca. 1881. A 24-inch walnut case with an old and light finish that is a bit bare.  The door glass is not original and has applied decals for decoration.  The paper dial is new, the hands appropriate.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is not signed; it runs briefly and strikes with some reluctance.  This is a weight-driven clock, claimed to be the smallest weight-driven clock, with two small weights that are not original.  A nice pendulum and no label.  Uncommon, with just three sales over the last ten years.  $100–$200.
