Condition Report For Lot# 1009 :
the burled elm veneer has some losses at knots, filled in. The clock lived its life in the presence of a smoker and dial has gone from cream color to light brown. Movement is signed SMITHS, England, exactly as signed Stennes items from this period. Someone may have ordered it from Elmer as a present and not wanted his name on the dial. Usually these bring around 2000 to 2500, but we assigned a modest estimate owing to the lack of signature. Needs cleaning and adjusting. Ht 57"
