Chauncey Jerome “Wood Lever” 8-inch with alarm,ca. 1886.  A 12-inch diameter octagonal case with rosewood veneer; note the missing strip on the upper left side.  The dial glass is old, the painted dial original, with a Jerome stamp below the mainstem.  The hands are original.  The 1-day lever-spring movement includes an alarm and is signed “Chauncey Jerome New Haven USA”.  It is running; the alarm was not tested but should work, striking on a small steel bell at the bottom.  Note that there is no strike.  No label inside or on the back. AAC sold a smaller time-and-strike in 2022 for $75.  Time and alarm seems unusual to me.  $50–$100.
