Condition Report For Lot# 252 :
the cherry case, which is the most desirable and least common, has been nicely refinished. The lower center finial has been replaced. The painted dial has been cleaned but is original and still retains its cracklature. One thumbprint vial has been repaired near the top. The mercury, which is only approximately simulated in the photograph, is included and will require special handling. This fine example will be the first time R.O. Schmitt Fine Arts will offer for auction a Regulator No. 19 in cherry in over 38 years.
