All Original J.C. Brown Ripple-Front Beehive

C.1845, J. C. Brown, Forestville, full ripple beehive, 8-day time and strike in rosewood. Condition: The case has been nicely rubbed down to show the beauty of the wood, and the hour hand is a replacement. With these minor exceptions the clock is totally original and a very nice example for a Brown ripple front. Typically these ripple front clocks sustain unsightly damage from rough handling which takes chunks of the ripples that are difficult & expensive to repair. For a JC Brown ripple front it is unusual for 100% of both the veneer and ripple to be perfectly intact and for the nice crispy label to be bright and easy to read. This is a very nice example in excellent condition. The Height is 19 inches.

 

Case – very attractive rosewood that has been rubbed to a nice sheen

Dial – nice for a J.C.brown shelf clock. A few chips that aren’t obvious with the door closed.

Label – very nice & readable label

Glass – nice original glasses – lower tablet is a nice lyre image 

Case hardware – nice original

Movement – nice original 

Operation - runs & strikes correctly.

Ransom Smith Transitional Clock

Ransom Smith sold clocks in New York from 1841 to around 1850 and here is an excellent all original example of his fine work. The beautifully executed carvings on the clock are boldly detailed and add a great deal of sophistication to the general beauty of the clock. Everything about this clock is original with the exception of two very tiny places on the reverse painting that could be two very small clouds put there by the original artist or could be very old touch-ups done many years ago. It's really hard to say at this point in time but whatever they are its not even noticeable when looking at the scene from the front. Just an FYI. All other aspects of this clock are undoubtedly well preserved and the wood movement functions properly by keeping good time and striking the hour correctly as well. This is an excellent original piece for anyone!  Collectors or investors will definitely appreciate this nicely hand-carved transition clock and in this original condition, they are getting very difficult to find.
