505.    $600

Welch “Patti No. 1”, ca. 1880.  The 18.5-inch rosewood case could use a cleaning if you want it to shine.  The three glasses are old, there is black flocked paper on the interior back wall.  The gold leaf on the front glass is a less common design also seen on other Patti clocks (see page 352 of Ly’s 2nd Edition of Welch Clocks).  The dial is old paper, the hands are Welch.  The 8-day time-and-strike Patti movement is running and striking on a nickel bell.  The standard Welch sandwich-glass pendulum is present and there is a good label on the back, but the two “nubbins” that are usually found over the back columns have gone missing.  This clock could be brightened up with a new paper dial; we can do that for you in ivory or white for $25.  We sold one in January for $840, a typical price for these popular Welch clocks.  $600-$900.
