37.           $750

Ithaca Calendar Clock Co. “No. 5 ˝ Hanging Belgrade”, in a later case. Extraordinary oak case, the color of medium oak, grooved designs all over the front and sides most are gold filled.  Note the two dial boards and pendulum are also covered with grooved designs of various shapes and sizes. This model has black dials with gold numbers and lettering, and the calendar rolls are black with gold lettering. I was sure excited when I photographed this clock for the ones I have sold in the past went for over $5000 and up to $8500. Then I began to notice how nice it was. Note the clean case, shining clean movements, and they are all running. The oak case is 37” tall, has many delicate wood parts that are easily broken or lost. To the best of our knowledge everything is correct on the clock and there are no glaring repairs or breaks. The black dials are also new, but on original period dial pans. The nickel-plated 30-day movement is period and signed by E. N. Welch and marked as being made for Ithaca. The calendar movement is a replica. The hanging Belgrade is a rare model and I cannot find a recorded sale of an original at any of the east coast auctions. The last ones we sold were in the January 2008 and July 2010 auctions, one bringing over $8500. Ly-Calendar, page 139. $1000-$2000.
