New Haven Banjo Clock

New Haven Banjo Clock

On the clock face at the bottom it says New Haven Clock Co., USA. It measures High 27 1/2 inches, Width, 9 3/4 inches across the pendulum box. It has a reverse painting of a sailing ship on the bottom glass.

It belongs to a friend that wants to sell it. She paid $200. to have it repaired, it is running fine now. I have read that the Banjo clock does not chime, and this one DOES.

Could this be a lyre, or a girandole clock ? My friend was told at the repair shop it was worth $1800. Can this be so? Please see pictures. The painting seems to be signed CW, or JW. Can anyone help with info, and value. Thanks Vernie
