Condition Report For Lot# 359 :
(1) The Gilbert has some resemblance to the "Excelsion J" shown in Ly, but this is an entirely different case and probably a premium model. The case appears original but refinished. A rear paper label remains, along with a Clear Lake, Iowa retailer's tag. (2) This model was probably sold by the American Clock Co. of New York, but the model has not been identified. The painted dial has considerable loss. The movements tick and strike but were not tested long term. Hts. 19.5 in and 23.5 in
