Antique clock, gold gilt, cast metal, circa 1900 Art Nouveau boudoir clock or Mantel clock, runs and keeps time. Very Quiet Perfect for desk, mantel, night stand. Marked on the bottom J.B. #497, indicating made by the Jennings Bros. of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Their metal foundry opened in 1890 and was known their quality work. They hired talented artist and sculpture's to design their artistic pieces. This particular clock was made for and retailed by the New Haven Clock Co., of New Haven, Conn. The original 30 hour key wind movement could not be repaired economically. It had a broken balance staff and broken main spring. The clock is now fitted with a new Made in the USA quartz movement. It keeps accurate time to within a few seconds a month. It runs one year on a LR44 watch battery. Clock case is 5 1/2” tall, 4 1/2” long and 3” deep. The four feet are free of damage, no repairs. Glass crystal is scratch free. See photos
