Henry Terry & Co. shelf clock, 1834-1836.  Clockmaking in the early 1800’s was tough even when your father was the most famous clockmaker in the US.  Henry worked in his father’s firms for about 10 years before setting out on his own with an unknown partner.  The business lasted two years after which Henry switched to making woolens, which he did successfully until 1860 in the clock factory his father (Eli) built.  The two-door case is 33 inches tall with mahogany veneer on the front and sides; the half-columns are “barber pole” mahogany with half-pineapples at the top, something I have not seen before. There is a carved eagle splat (which I have seen before).  Both glasses are replacements, the tablet an unsigned reproduction. The dial is clean, the hands period.  The 30-hour time-and-strike movement will run for 4 or 5 minutes and will strike on the iron bell.  There are two old weights and a good label behind plastic.  A nice example.  $250-$500.
