Bought this in Sweden (Löppis), couldn´t pass it for 2€! The finish with light alligatoring was refreshed and redone with two coats of shellaque and the movement serviced (not too much worn,no bushings needed) I guess it´s from the 1880-1890?
Enjoy!

2 Euros? Not 200? How much is round-trip airfare from the US to Sweden? Almost worth crossing the pond to buy an American clock! Your clock corresponds to the Drop Octagon, R.C., as shown in Tran Duy Ly's book on the New Haven Clock Co. The image in the book is from the 1880 catalog. That's a very nice clock that I'd be proud to own.

Thanks Mike for Your info.
It seems that Sweden imported quiet a lot of American clocks between 1870 and WW I; I could have bought several OG´s both Jerome and other makers, 30hour and 8 day in beautifull condition with wonderfull original tablets for 20-50 Kronor that is 2-5 Euros and more Drop Octogons as well.This one was the best both per the case and the movement, but there are many more left....;)
Thanks again!
Burkhard
