“Seth Thomas” 9-inch tall cottage clock ST called, “Cabinet No. 2-J”. It is the same height as all the small cottage clocks but they have differing case styles and movements. This very nice rosewood veneered case has their J-type movement which is 30-hour time and strike. It has a brass bezel, repainted white dial pan, ST hands, and replaced paper dial. You access the pendulum thru an opening underneath the case. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 229. $100-$200.

“Terry Clock Co. movement in this case is a 30-hour, time and alarm. It alarms on an iron bell. Typical of small Terry movements it has a stationary pendulum, and it is running robustly. The rosewood veneered case is 9 3/8 inches tall, and like many we have photographed so far, has a gilt door. The gilt has been redone. The veneer around the base is all there but some is slightly warped. There are two original glasses, original painted metal dial, replaced hands, iron bell and key. The collector of these clocks was very particular about the clocks he owned. He had a note in this case that it was possibly a marriage, Terry movement in an Ansonia case. Don’t forget during the 1850-1870 period The Terry’s were part owners of Ansonia. I don’t think it is a marriage. $50-$100.
