Juvet and Company

Catalog Description:

C.1880, Juvet Time Globe, 12 inches. This clock was patented by Lewis P. Juvet of Glens Falls, New York, in 1867, and they were manufactured by James Arkell and A. G. Richmond, operating as Juvet and Co., in Canojoharie,NY from 1879-86. The movement is inside the globe, riding on an axis down the center. The robust movement looks like it should run a week, but is designed to run with reserve power for 30 hours only; it is wound by turning the tail feathers. A regular 12 hour time dial is above the North Pole, and the globe makes a revolution once in 24 hours, thus making it possible, via a scale on the equator to easily determine the local time at any point on the globe. The overall condition of the clock and globe is very good to excellent; note glass dial has been replaced and is cracked; globe has received a clear overspray; see also next lot. This very clock is pictured in Dworetsky's Horology Americana, page 176. Height 46 inches
