Antique Shreve & Co., San Francisco Carriage Clock
A beautiful Shreve & Co. San Francisco signed brass carriage clock, circa 1890. Unfortunately, the clock is not in working order, but I couldn't pass it up when I saw it at an estate sale. Shreve and Company in San Francisco is one of the finest, and this clock is stunning!
The clock features a gorgeous porcelain face, and each side is open to view with beveled glass panels, as is the top, through which you can view the balance wheel and escapement mechanism. Back is marked, "France." A couple areas of chiped glass that are very subtle.
It measures 4-1/4" tall, by 3-1/4" wide, by 2 1/2" deep.
Beautiful clock for display, or can be fixed by a clock repair expert. The price reflects the clock in its current condition. If repaired, it sells for quite a bit more.
