Chauncey Jerome remote spring steeple, 1844-1850.  A 22.5-inch sharp gothic case in mahogany veneer with the original dial glass and a period mirror.  The flat dial has been varnished; the hands are original/period. The signed, 8-day time-and-strike movement has remotely mounted springs but is not a fusee.  The label advertises “with steel mainsprings”.  The wire gong is a replacement and not fitted correctly.  The New Haven address on the label puts its manufacture in the late 1840’s.  $175-$250.
