Butte, Montana Carriage Clock
Here's one for the collector of Montana labeled clocks!
This lovely time and alarm carriage clock sits 6" tall and 3" wide. The beveled glass is fitted to all sides and the top. There is a slight chip to the front upper left corner, but otherwise all fine.
The clock is French made but was retailed by J. H. Leyson of Butte. He operated a jewelry store at 221 North Main Street in the late 1800's until 1902 when he closed the business.
As an interesting sideline, Leyson and the copper king Marcus Daly donated (for one dollar) a piece of land in Butte that was to become the Federal Building. The building housed the U.S. Post Office and federal courts.
Interesting piece of history associated with this lovely turn of the century carriage clock.
