    Thought I'd show off this new arrival that came in the mail a couple days ago. Been on the lookout for a nice example for sometime. This one seems to have survived really well. Very clean overall, and working well. A couple small repairs to the case, plus I'm sure a refinish at some point, and tiny areas of touchup paint to the eglomise. From the auction photos, I had assumed that the lower glass was a modern replacement or repaint. Looking at it up close now, I see it definitely has some good age. The interior and the label are also very clean. Anyone want to take a guess at who the maker is?

    Very attractive, lovely condition. Congrats. Wouldn't like to hazard a guess at maker, not being au fait with American Clocks this side of the pond.

    Congrats on this great find. This is about the best you can hope for other than if it still had the original finish. I'm still looking for one myself.
