  GILDED GALLERY CLOCK, LATE 19TH CENTURY
Dimensions (inches): Please Call
Description:

GILDED GALLERY CLOCK, LATE 19TH CENTURY:
20 inch Regulator or gallery clock.  Pine or chestnut case with original gided molding.  Made by Brewsters & Ingrahm, though unmarked.  Bears a repair tag stating that it was cleaned by Robert F. King, Jeweler, Thompsonville, CT, in 1889.  This would be very near the date of manufacture.  A beautiful example with a bold, step-down profile.  Original glass, bubbled from age.  Though these rare gilded examples look great anywhere, the porthole style form is particularly great for a beach house.

Condition of Case:  Some repair of gilt loss at the very inner edge on the molding, close to the glass.

Condition of Works:  The clock was in running order when I purchased it, but I have not run it since.  I buy clocks for their beautiful cases, not their works.  Even the best early clock can work one minute and not the next, and since I can not provide perpetual care, it is largely your responsibility to get it running and maintain it, though I can assist.  I have a local clock expert who can assist and can travel for a fee.
