condition: good
If you are reading this ad, then this beautiful antique timepiece is still available, so no need to ask.
These two masters formed a partnership from 1833 – 1837 in Bristol, Connecticut. The clock is in perfect running condition, and features a raised gilt eagle splat over the painted wood dial, half columns with gilt capitals flanking the upper and lower doors, a reverse painted glass in the lower door, and an original mirror in the midsection. The unique eight-day strap brass movement is spotless, and is powered by two cast iron weights and regulated by a pendulum. The clock strikes the number of the hour on a bell. There is considerable wear to the maker’s label. Dimensions are: 17 inches wide x 5 ½ inches deep x 37 inches tall. Cash only please. Email with a phone number, or call/text. Thanks for looking. Good luck
