Bradley & Hubbard lantern clock, ca. 1885. Sometimes called a Parade Clock as they were carried in nighttime parades and outings; there is a working kerosene lamp inside and the dial is milk glass to let the light through.  The thin brass case is 13 inches tall with a loop hanger on top; the square case is pierced and has colored glass inserts, faceted and round.  The hands are correct.  There is a one-day backwind movement inside that I cannot convince to run.  My consignor tells me the light coming through the glasses and piercings is wonderful. The bottom is stamped with the makers’ name.  Schmitt Horan just sold one for $950.  $600–$1000.
