Lot#: 385

DESCRIPTION: Bradley & Hubbard, Meriden, Conn., "John Bull" blinking eye shelf clock with a spring driven, 30 hour, timepiece with a balance wheel escapement in a painted cast iron case.
CONDITION: The paint quality is poor. The movement is a modern day German movement. The replaced dial is now porcelain, the hands are new as is the brass bezel. The earlier style John Bull case with fancy base has been broken in several locations, poorly glued and is now in several pieces which will need to be properly glued.
ESTIMATE: $150 - $250
