Column clock CA 1850 New Haven/Chauncey Jerome
Quintessentially "American", this little workhorse from the 1850s keeps time just like the modern ones, albeit with somewhat less accuracy. Just wind its spring-driven movement once a week and it will not only count out the minutes and hours but will remind you with a mellow, gong strike every hour. The mahogany case with faux-grain and gilded columns is in magnificent condition and both glass panels are original. Outside of some paint loss on the reverse-painted bottom panel and some minor wear on the metal hand-painted dial, you couldn't find a cosmetically nicer clock of this early vintage. The original movement has been completely gone through and is freshly cleaned, oiled and running perfectly. Even the advertising paper on the inside back is intact and readable! It can either sit on a mantel or shelf or hang on a wall. 18" tall, 12" wide and 4-1/2" deep. A completely authentic & functional piece of history that will win you over with its outspoken yankee charm!
