New Haven Clock Co. “Washington” thirty-day chiming banjo, ca. 1923.  A 41-inch dark mahogany case with an octagonal dial and Mount Vernon glasses, striking and chiming on the quarter-hours on five rods.  A few scuffs to the case, a few flakes off the tablet and throat glass, and light scuffing to the silvered 8-inch dial.  A brass eagle finial on top.  The hands are correct and the clock is running, striking, and chiming (Westminster) as expected.  It is spring-driven and the pendulum bob is a replacement.  Schmitt Horan sold a similar example in 2020 for $150.  $100–$200.
