Ht 16"; (2) The mahogany case retains much of its original finish. There is veneer repair at several locations on the case. The original painted dial shows paint loss at the corners, the winding holes and in the chapter ring. The "ST" hands are period and correct. The movement is signed. The glasses are original and the tablet is by William B. Fenn. Ht 18 3/4"; (3) the antique metronome is the rare deluxe model with adjustable bell-ring to signal the ends of measures.
