This incredible Japanese inspired New Haven clock features a faux mercury pendulum bob, a brass bell strike, and an eight day New Haven movement (not verified.) The clock runs and chimes as it should and appears to be original. 

The Japanese inspired glass shows bamboo and globe themes consistent with the export market for which this clock was made. The clock appears to have come through a UK Auction house according to a label on the back. 

The rosewood veneer case is in very good condition with a few hidden repairs around its vulnerable edges. The gold cartouche in the door is in very good condition. This is an excellent running 19th century New Haven Clock Company example as is or an easy restoration.
