Foster Campos, Pembroke, Mass., reproduction of a scroll top Massachusetts Shelf Clock. This is an exceptionally nice clock, skillfully constructed, as were all of Mr. Campos’s clocks. The case and the Moberg painted top glass are signed by him. The mahogany case is 35” tall, signed “18” on its various parts, has four round gold feet underneath, and a decorative brass finial on top. Both Moberg painted glasses are extraordinary. The bottom glass features five sailing ships and is inscribed, “Escape of the Constitution”. The movement is a typical Mass. shelf clock 8-day, one weight, time only movement, that has a passing strike on the hours. It strikes one time on any hour, on a brass bell located on top of the movement. It has a brass pendulum bob, and an iron weight. They do not come any nicer than this clock. $1500-$2000.
