Case: This is a short drop octagon shaped 'school clock' with the head of the case made of eight individual constructs of wood (? oak) and having a black painted circular ring abound the brass glazed bezel over the dial. Below the octagonal head of the case is short drop of four sides and glazed with a decal that states, Regulator 'A'. There is an attached card that states, '#54861 Pony Express System Yorktown, NY', (likely the facility where it kept time on the wall). The round white dial, most likely made of paper (although they can be painted) has a Roman hour chapter, closed minute ring, two winding apertures with brass collets and directional arrows for winding the spring driven movement. There are steel American style spade hands.
Movement The movement is not shown but most likely a skeletonized brass plate style with coiled steel springs for the eight day time and the hourly striking on a coiled wire gong. If this is an American made clock there would be the company name stamped into the movement. However, such clocks were also made in Asia, both in Japan and Korea, and they copied the American style closely.
Condition: Appears to be in good physical condition and I will assume that it is able to run.
