Welch, Spring & Co. “Round Head No. 4”, ca. 1880.  A 32-inch rosewood case with grain-painted rosewood on the bezels; the base is original.  The dial glass has old putty but looks like modern glass, the lower glass is period.  The time dial holds old paint with some soiling; the hands are proper/original.  The lower dial is in good condition with the proper hands.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed EN Welch and is running and striking on a wire gong and the calendar hands are advancing.  A good label inside as well as on the back of the door, along with a BB Lewis Perpetual Calendar label.  A nice example.  AAC sold a similar example last summer for $450.  $400–$500.

I use the following bid increments to assign the final sale price.  If your winning bid is less than one increment over the second highest bid, you are assessed your full bid amount.
   BID                     INCREMENT

$1-$249                       $0            The bid you place is the price you pay –                                                       no increments applied
$250-$499                   $25
$500-$999                   $50
$1000-$2499               $100
$2500-$4999               $250
$5000-$9999               $500
$10,000 >                    $1000
If you are the only bidder and you bid less than $250, you will pay your full bid amount if you are the winning bidder; if you bid more than $250, you will get the item for $250 or the minimum bid price, whichever is higher.
