    Terry & Andrews steeple clock circa 1840s seems the painted glass tile has been replaced because it doesnt match the period it does have the original paper glue inside but no model name so I was wondering anyone knew the model name of this clock, it is a 30 hour clock with a harp movement.

      Could you post some photos/close ups of the interior/movement? It does look to be in remarkably good shape for a clock from that era. Looks nice in any case.

      I think you should do a bit of research they did have glues in those days and these models were also made with wood veneers which was GLUED over sub standard woods to give the appearance of a much more expensive item.

      I will get some inside pics when I open it up because a lot of the joints have loosened and need to be reglued I did pull thin clock maker up on line and cases of thin nature appears to be very common in their line of clock but I didn't see the exact one to find a model name.
    5. schallerpen schallerpen, 7 years ago
      Bruce99 got the best interior pic I could the movement is stamped Terry&Andrews Bristol Conn. The movement is also pinned together at the frame rails instead of bolts and nuts this is the first time I have ever seen that.
    6. schallerpen schallerpen, 7 years ago
      After doing a lot of digging I tend to believe the movement and case are era 1840 - 50s but the painted tile has obviously been replaced at some point as it doesn't match that date. At any rate very decent clock for its age.

      Very neat clock, did the inside stickers add info to determine dating, they appear to be in very nice condition. Again great steeple clock, thanks for sharing

      No the paper work inside didn't give much clues at all but pull up terry & Andrews clocks and the style of that era and the length of time they were in business puts the case and movement right in the time period but as said above the tile doesn't fit the period so I feel its been replaced most I have seen online also seem to be in exceptional condition so the condition of this one didn't surprise me.

      Thanks for taking the time to post the additional photos schallerpen. Your clock looks authentic to me and I think that your circa may be a little too old. Similar examples I'm finding online say 1845:

      I agree that the tablets seems to have been repainted to a theme that is not period appropriate to the clock but it doesn't look bad.

      I don't see any mainsprings. If you had original brass springs it would really increase the value of this clock to collectors.

      It's been well cared for. The movement looks clean and unmolested. Very nice clock. I don't know what the model name was other than the style which is "Sharp Gothic" or "Steeple".

      Thanks for sharing it with us!

      Just saw one on antiques road show identical era and maker to bad the tile was replace on mine value of one on TV $800.00 they didn't seem to have a model name on that one either

      Nice clock.

      I would also suspect that the top rectangular pieces (very light brown wood) originally had veneer pieces that more closely matched the rest of the clock's veneer.

      Pls correct me if I am wrong, Bruce99. Have you seen these before with wood that contrasts as much as this example?

      Your correct, they are a bit lighter I just checked and they are veneer but may to have been done at some point the lighter shows more on camera then looking at it all in all I couldn't pass it up for $75.00.
    13. scottvez scottvez, 7 years ago
      Good buy.

      It won't come close to the roadshow price, but it is worth much more than what you paid.

      I agree but a few cosmetics don't bother me a bit over a time of about 170 years.
