This mahogany-cased wall clock was made by F. Kroeber, New York, but it has a nameplate and instruction label of “Cook & Jaques” inside the case. The movement is labeled “F. Kroeber, New York”
Kroeber probably bought the movement from a maker such as Noah Pomeroy, who commonly made the type of escapement used in this clock (strip deadbeat),
This clock has a special pendulum with an adjusting scale, patented by F. Kroeber on March 29, 1881.
The case is 29 3/4 inches long without the bottom finial.
Repair job 5840. disassembled and cleaned, no repair.
