So, at the regional in Texas today, I came across something that was entirely unexpected. Namely, it was a fairly nondescript 30 hr woodworks. It has decent stenciling on the columns and splat, the mirror has failed, and all the flakes are in the bottom of the door, behind what seems to be an original backboard behind the former mirror that has never been removed or so it seems. But, a survivor woodworks down here is not a common happening. And this one is a bit special. It is a Chauncey Ives, made for a very short time, and it was made with a special movement, namely a movement by Chauncey to Terry specifications. It is also a 42 tooth escape wheel movement, which is what was used in Terry’s P&S clocks. The date of manufacture of this particular clock is thought to be 1824-1828. Per Ken Roberts in his book on Ives, paraphrased a bit: “A variation of the split pillar "Bronze Looking Glass" clock made by Chauncey Ives is shown. The movement is the same style as the pillar and scroll clock illustrated below. Note that this movement has the conventional 42 teeth escape wheel for the approximate half-second pendulum of the Terry patent, rather than the longer pendulum resulting from 32 teeth in the usual long looking-glass case. This again suggests that Chauncey Ives had made an arrangement with Eli Terry to use his patented arrangement. However, these movements were undoubtedly made by Chauncey Ives. It is believed he was the first to use the Terry (style) movement in the Bronze Looking Glass case.” This clock is quite original and would seemingly made within a very short period as the one featured in Roberts book. ( This new find by me has rails to support the movement, the very earliest only screwed to the backboard.) This case is slightly thinner but otherwise nearly identical to the one pictured by Roberts. It has a pair of interesting and unusual tall thin rectangular weights; I have not seen this style weight previously. Sadly, it has no hands or pendulum bob, but everything else seems to belong together and is quite original in all ways I think (so far). Having the original mirror glass will allow a "restoration" in the case I think. More on that later. So, even down here in the South, some woodworks of interest do pop up! And this one is not only in decent original surface and overall condition, but it is not a common clock. It may be a common form but worth more investigation and study.
