Herschede Clock Co. weight-driven banjo, ca. 1921. A 42-inch mahogany-cased banjo timepiece (including the gilded gesso eagle finial) with Mount Vernon glasses.  Note the missing flake on the original tablet.  The dial glass is a replacement, convex, over a painted dial with some flaking and light soiling. The signed movement, serial number 7567, is running without problem, driven by a lead weight.  The most recent sales match that I can find was in 2019 for $300.  $250$350.
