Antique Chicago Globe Chronometer Company Clock
C.1900, Chicago Globe Chronometer Co., Chicago, IL, 12 inches time globe in good original condition. This clock was designed by George W. Ramage; it shows the hours and minutes on two annular dials in the French fashion. The chronometric balance movement was provided by the Chelsea Clock Co.. This clock is pictured in Distin and Bishop, page 199, fig 464. Two pointers allow you to keep track of local time and one other time at a glance. Since the photo was taken for Bishop, the globe has had something dropped on it that has made a few scuffs; see detail image, above label. Also the paper globe cover, which is glued on in sections, is lifting at some joints. Still, this is an exceedingly rare clock, the first we have ever seen, and according to Bishop, only 2 are known to exist. Height 20 inches
