My newest purchase. A decent, early ogee that appears to be more or less all original. This one is by Jeromes and Company (1840-41), after the partnership of Jeromes, Gilbert and Grant and before Chauncey Jerome went solo. The finish looks original and in good shape. I will just gently clean and polish it. There are a couple veneer losses at the base that I will probably address. Also a blistered veneer on one of the ogee moldings, but it is solid and will probably just let it be. This clock has a brass dial, which is one of the main reasons I purchased it. Its numerals are worn, but I plan to leave it just as it is. This is framed by reverse painted spandrels on the upper glass. There is some minor flaking to the black background overall, but the bottom right has significant loss. I may attempt to gently touch up some of this at some point. The hands look to be original. The lower tablet I think is original, but appears that someone tried to seal it with black paint on the back. There is some loss to the painting but not terrible. I will leave it as it is. The label is in pretty good condition as well. The movement I believe is a type 1.211 by Jerome. Someone on here can probably help verify that assumption. If so, I feel certain it is original to the clock. The seller said it runs, but I have not tried it or inspected the movement yet. All in all I am pleased with the purchase and happy to add it to my collection.
