125.           $100

Terhune & Edwards “Grisi” iron-front, ca. 1867.  A 16-inch iron-front with bright flowers below the dial and grain-painting around the dial and center section, and gilding across the bottom. An interesting design not often seen.  There is a foundry stamp on the back but I cannot read it.  The dial glass is old with newer putty, the lower glass a modern replacement.  The dial is paper, possibly original, with the numbering strengthened. Hands are old replacements, the minute hand modified to fit.  The 30-hour time-and-strike movement is unsigned; it is clean and running, striking on a wire gong.  There is a dark label inside.  $100–$200.
