Description:

Pair of Atkins Cottage Clocks, both flat-top mahogany cases with stenciled door glass, 6-in. painted zinc Roman numeral dials, one an eight-day time-only movement, the other a thirty-hour time and alarm, ht. 12 in.
Estimate $200-400

Thirty-hour dial may be refreshed. Veneer on both cases in very good condition. Both clocks have blue paper labels stating Eight day Timepieces manufactured by M. W. Atkins & Co. but the thirty-hour movement appears to be original to the case.
