This little fellow I first purchased in about 1978. I sold it to a fellow collector who kept it all these years. He decided to downsize last month a sold off all his clocks to an Indianapolis clock dealer whom I have known since he started collecting and dealing. So, I bought it back for about what I sold it for 40+ years ago. While it is not a remarkable clock in many respects, what is remarkable is its state of preservation. I think the finish is original, never refinished, never deeply cleaned, never subjected to Go-Jo, etc. Dial is excellent as is the label, hands, weights, and so forth. Even has original dust on it I am sure. The only uncertainty from my perspective is the tablet. It is proper for the period, it is what was in the clock when I bought it the first time. It looks right but almost too good.
