S.B. Jerome & Co. small lever-spring wall clock, 1856-1878.  Chauncey Jerome’s son Samuel (one of three) who owned part of Jerome & Co. in England and his own firm, made small shelf clocks and lever-spring marine clocks, as found here.  The 9-inch diameter wood case is covered in a leather-like fabric; the dial glass is modern, the 5-inch dial pan repainted, and a paper dial applied.  The hands are appropriate modern replacements.  The unsigned 8-day, time-and-strike lever-spring movement is running and striking on a small iron bell. There is a small label on the back noting the manufacturer.  A rare manufacturer, with no listed sales in LiveAuctioneers, although there are three similar examples on the Antique Clocks Identification and Price Guide.  $50–$150.
