    I love estate sales, I got this one a few months ago. It's a wonderful clock. I had to have new string put on one side so decided to change both sides to cats gut string. To make it look more age appropriate. It wasn't keeping time very well. Going threw the day in less than two hours. After giving to my clock guy. I had the weights on backwards! So it is working much better with the correct weight. My only issue with this clock is it's a daily wind. I have way too many daily wind clocks! It keeps me busy! I seen somewhere 1840. If this is incorrect please correct me. Thank you for looking!

      I Lamplover78.

      I think that you're right on the Circa.
      Here's a good resource for your Chauncey Jerome Clock:

      Thank you for that information. I did find a clock that looks just like it on there. So possibly 1841- 1857

      You're very welcome Lamplover78!
      My guess for your clock would be on the lower end of that range but I'm not sure.
      We only have one Jerome clock in our collection, a 30-hour sharp gothic with a lot of wear to the movement. Chauncey Jerome was a very important innovator in American Clock manufacturing. That website has a lot of very good information on him. Our collection focus is more along the lines of late 1800's to early 1900's. Thank you for all of your "Love its", btw, glad you enjoyed our postings. I have certainly enjoyed yours.

      I have a thing for clocks, lamps, antiques, or anything interesting really. I only have 10 clocks at the moment. Its enough to have to wind really. But I recently seen my dream clock in an antique shop in Fort Myers beach Florida. It was a 1920 grandfather clock. With the big tubes.
      Thanks for your reply. I really like the movement in the Chauncey Jerome clock. Its neat to watch. I also think the wind key is neat. I like it even better with the new cats gut strings. It is only a 30 hour though. Thanks for the reply and info, Stephanie

      Chauncey Jerome pioneered/developed the use of brass in manufactured clock movements. Prior to his innovations, most clock movements made in American used wood for both the plates and gears. The open center of your clock's dial was to feature the brass movement.
