Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


196.    $150

English fusee octagon drop, ca. 1890.  A 26-inch wall clock with mahogany veneer, a 12-inch painted metal dial and a time-only fusee 8-day movement.    The heavy nickel bezel has come unsoldered from the hinge and will need repair; the thick glass is probably original.  The movement is unsigned but well made, typical of English fusee movements. There is a typical heavy English pendulum; the clock ticks only for a minute or so.  The latch on the bottom door has been replaced. With some effort this would be a nice English wall clock.  $150-$300.
