Condition Report For Lot# 903:
The case, with an old refinish and replaced skirt, appears very similar to an example by Emory shown on page 24 of Dworetsky. One side cove molding is loose and has a break on the lower left case side and the brass castings on the columns of the hood are replacements. The consignor has supplied a provenance sheet, indicating that the original movement was exchanged for a brass one c1920. The current movement and dial c1830, sitting on a new plywood seat board, was fit more recently and looks ready to run. Flwg comments added by editor: " Jesse Emory worked in Weare, New Hampshire and apparently made some cases for his clocks, but this is in no way one of his cases. The clock referenced is not in its original case. I knew that clock shown in Dworetsky when it belonged to an old collector in Newburg, New York. I believe this clock case was also made in New York state from the design and the extensive use of high quality tiger maple (which was plentiful in NY state, but not so much in Conn.) This handsome case could have had a wooden movement originally as it is about c. 1810-1820, but is nice enough to have had a brass movement.", [Chris Bailey 3/12] Ht 97" to top of finial"
