Waterbury Clock Co. “Alton”, ca. 1906.  A 39-inch spring-driven wall clock, this one in walnut with an old patina.  The glass is old, the dial likely original paper with some wear and yellowing, the hands fancy Waterbury issue.  All the brass has been polished to a high shine.  There are labels on the back and one on the interior base, below a Waterbury porcelain beat scale.  The signed, 8-day time-only movement is running like a champ.  Altons are not terribly common, and walnut is always attractive in an old finish.  AAC sold this clock a year ago for $333.  $300-$500.
