This beautiful ogee, dating to c. 1843, has a number of things going for it. The brass dial is very elaborate, with raised numerals and chapter ring. I’ve only seen one other example on a Jerome clock. The reverse-painted tablet is also unusual. All of the features (vase, flowers, and leaves) were hand-drawn and hand-painted. I’ve seen three other examples, and no two are identical.
Label printed by Elihu Geer.
