C. Jerome Self Clock

I have for your pleasure an early C. Jerome Time and Strike Clock in a beautiful Ebonized Case. Jerome is one of the founders of the American Clock industry and made some unique clocks. This one uses a process of a thin coat of plaster type material over the clock. Than a lacquer finish in black, over all of this.

A key to know this clock is the glass. Jerome used some of the best glass decoration and this is a great example. These colors are rich and vibrant even after some 125 years. Also please note that in the center of the design you will find a C J c for C. Jerome Co.. This is a fine example of working his name into the clock.

This has a few chips in the plaster but they are small and a little black paint and you will know where they were. She is a working clock and a good recorder of the passage of time and sticking on the hour. Please note the gong, which is a very high-grade one, and the addition of an added back for improving the sound. It all works together for a very nice sounding clock.

This clock is a nice size with out being overbearing at 16 1⁄2 by 9 1⁄2 inches. As best I can determine it is all original with the possible exception of the holding the dial in place. While talking of the dial note the two tabs that were used to mount the dial.

A great clock from an important maker in America history.
