Beautiful antique Pillar & Scroll made by Eli Terry and Son Clock Company of Connecticut about 1825. The veneer is tight to the case and excellent for a 194 year old American antique. The old hands are delicate and the original hand painted wood dial features raised gesso spandrels highlighted in gold leaf. The massive wood movement looks original to the case. The original glass surface of the reverse painted glass does not have any chips or cracks and has a nice slight warp, a characteristic marker of early 19th century cylinder glass. Kind of amazing it survived so well over time. The clock has a pendulum bob and rod, key, two weights and brass finials. The top crest and the bottom fretwork look right to me. The tips of the scrolls have been carved and repaired. Really nice clock makers label. The clock has been in storage for a long time and is untested. Its about 25 tall. This clock is an estate find I acquired along with several. The item “Antique Eli Terry and Sons Pillar & Scroll c1825 Mantel Clock Original Glass” is in sale since Thursday, November 7, 2019.
