DESCRIPTION: Ithaca Calendar Clock Co., Ithaca, New York, "No. 0 Regulator" hanging clock with a weight driven, 8 day, timepiece movement (Welch, Spring & Co.) and a H. B. Horton patented perpetual calendar mechanism in a walnut case with burl walnut accents.
CONDITION: The case is in excellent condition and retains an original finish. The original paper dial for the time movement has been overlaid with a painted dial. The paper calendar dial is original and shows some aging. The calendar drum papers are original. The hands are all original. The movement is unsigned but is identical to the the Welch, Spring & Co. movement shown for the Ithaca No. 0 Regulator on page 122 of Tran Duy Ly's "Calendar Clocks reference book. With the exception of a very few minor surface scratches and the time dial, this is an excellent and beautiful example of this scarce Ithaca clock.
