Description:

Pennsylvania Walnut Tall Clock, c. 1800, flat-top hood with freestanding columns flanking the Roman numeral painted iron dial with floral spandrels and decorated arch, full-length tombstone door, and step molded base, thirty-hour, time and hour strike, pull-up movement, with unmarked false plate, regulated by two cast iron weights, and pendulum, ht. 90 in.
Estimate $700-900

lacking minute hand, dial numerals refreshed, faceplate and the works are a marriage, and there is some lost molding to the hood. At one point, this piece had feet as well.
