1890s Reed's Tonic Patent Medicine Advertising Grandfather Clock Miniature 24":
Very Rare and simply fantastic, 1890's, “Reed’s Gilt Edge Tonic” / American Patent Medicine Miniature Grandfather / Tall Case Style Advertising Clock.
This beautiful little advertising Clock measures approx. 25” tall and 10 1/4” by 4” at the base it is made entirely of wood. The Clock appears to be 100% original retaining the original, paperboard face with advertising lettering that reads “Reed’s Gilt Edge Tonic”. The central, lithographed panel features text that reads “Reeds’s Tonic Cures”. This text is completed on the lower lithographed panel with text that reads “Malaria and Indigestion” (how these two ailments are related I have NO idea).
The Clock retains its original brass movement and original hands. The movement is in excellent, working condition and the Clock retains its original pendulum.
This very rare and wonderful, 1890's, Reed’s Gilt Edge Tonic Advertising Clock is in very good to excellent condition. The Clock is complete and intact. It is in working order and retains all of the original advertising panels and the original advertising clock face. The Clock face is intact with no significant physical damage but with some light surface wear as can be seen in the scans below. It appears that the forward facing wood surfaces were refinished a long time ago (these surfaces may have been originally ebonized as is the remainder of the clock case) but overall this beautiful little Advertising Clock is very well preserved and displays beautifully.
A VERY rare and beautiful, c1890's, “Reed’s Gilt Edge Tonic” / American Patent Medicine Miniature Grandfather / Tall Case Style Advertising Clock and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
PLEASE NOTE: Although the mechanism of the Clock is intact and original and the spring is tight, we have not been able to get it to run and it will need to be at least thoroughly cleaned and adjusted and likely will need some repair. We also beleave that the small, brass latch that holds the glass door that covers the face of the clock has been replaced - just the small brass hook and eye.
