Condition Report For Lot# 461 :
Mahogany and mahogany veneered case in an old finish has some veneer loss on the base, a broken tip on the left scroll of the jester splat and a poor repair to the right scroll. Period painted dial has turned yellow from a later application of shellac or varnish. This painted dial is probably a period replacement as the period hands are for a dial with the chapter ring inside the chapter. Someone has gouged out an area on the movement front to allow the pendulum to swing. The clock now has a gong rather than a bell. Original painted tablet has scattered loss and some inpainting. Two repro pineapple finials. Clean label inside. Original twist columns and feet. This is a scarce Jerome model worthy of restoration.
