Chelsea Clock Co. “Chinese Chippendale”,ca. 1921.  This uncommon model is shown on page 83 of Ly’s American Clocks, Vol. 2.  It is 11.75 inches tall is black lacquer mahogany with painted decorations on the front, inset borders on the sides, and painted tiles on top.  The dial glass is beveled, the dial silvered with inset lacquered numbers and is signed along with the retailer’s name (A. Stowell & Co., Boston Mass). The hands are proper; the movement is not visible from the back, as it is obscured by the gong mount.  It strikes on the hours and half-hours with a rich sound.  The 8-day lever movement is running nicely.  No sales records that I can find. $250–$500.
