F.C. ANDREWS CORNICE AND COLUMN TRIPLE DECKER - For Sale
F.C. ANDREWS CORNICE AND COLUMN TRIPLE DECKER
Franklin C. Andrews established his clockmaking company in Bristol, Connecticut around 1850 and some years later moved the business to New York City. This handsome 'triple-decker' or "Cornice and Column" mantle clock includes a professionally-cleaned and well-adjusted, brass eight-day weight-driven movement with a strike on the hours. The wood dial (with a few touch-ups),and the hands are also original to the clock. The door glasses include colorful scenic and floral reverse paintings with professionally- restored borders and background. There is enough of the original paper label inside the case to clearly read the maker's name (F.C. Andrews) as well as a charming American flag imprint (see photograph). The clock is in excellent running condition and strikes the hours properly on a coil gong. This will make an eye-appealing addition to anyone's mantle or wall shelf...and like our other clocks...it's priced reasonably due to careful management practices and our long-standing policy of listing clocks at sensible prices!!
