Here is a gift from a wonderful internet friend of mine.
This is a beautiful 8 day brass-spring beehive clock made by Brewster & Ingrahams. The clock retains the original finish, and everything else on it apart from the tablet is original.
Sadly, the strike spring has shattered (possibly during transport), and these are irreplaceable.
I was told that this clock is rather rare because B&I only made 8 day brass-spring clocks for about 4 years (1837-1843).
I am excited to get this clock cleaned and running, but I will need to find out what the equivalent steel spring replacement should be, and order one, before I do that. In the meantime the clock sits just to my right in the computer room. I have found a Terry key that fits the original door "lock" (really just a latch) perfectly, and added a tassel to it.
