This specific clock was located in the Clark and True Jewelry shop in Middleton, Conn., from the 1880's until 1960 when they went out of business. It was moved to a family estate on Long Island where it sat until it was discovered in 2004 by Kirtland Crump. Mr. Crump re-silvered the dial and over hauled the movement and sold the clock to the current owner. Movement is stamped and dated and appears to be the same movement as was used on the S.T. Regulator No. 12, however this clock does not have jeweled pallets. The case is missing the bottom back panel which mildewed while sitting in the cellar and has been replaced with pine boards. Bottom storage latch was moved up and someone added shelves at some point for the jewelry store (note one of the shelves stamped Clark and True). The tip to the pointer for rating screw is absent.

1044 $1000 $1500 Joseph Ives, 8 day time and strike gilt case wall lyre reproduction, c20th century this a very attractive clock, but the main part of the case is new and has a backboard from a Birge & Fuller clock. This firm was not in business when this model was made. The movement is period and would work in this case, but again was not made by Birge and Fuller. The gilt front to the case is very nicely done and could be an original front that was made whole, but we feel that it was made at the same time as the main case. It is a very attractive example and would make a nice addition to one's collection despite the fact it is not period. This clock was purchased in 1990 and took two years to restore. What we don't know is what did in look like in 1990? Was it only the front and the rest was added? Ht 39"
