condition: good
If you are reading this ad, then this wonderful antique timepiece is still available, so no need to ask. Not the typical 30 hour Ogee, this slightly taller weight driven 8 day clock is not often found and not at this price. The clean brass strap movement (rolled brass was still too expensive then) is a decorative “acorn” or “lyre” type; again not the typical stamped squared off type. The company first made cases and then the complete clocks in Bristol CT from 1831 – 1855. The clock runs perfectly and only strikes the hour on a wire gong. The case is in excellent shape and the reverse painting of a castle is about 96% complete. There is very minor flaking on the wooden painted face. The original weights and pendulum bob are included, but the key is probably a replacement. Dimensions are : 16 ½ inches wide x 4 ½ inches deep x 29 inches tall. Cash only please. Email with a phone number, or call/text.
Also have two beautiful 1800s tall case clocks. $1250 each. And a 1880s 3 weight Grande Sonnerie for $950.
Thanks for looking. Good luck.
