The case retains its original painted dial with the st logo and original fancy hands. The ornately damascened pendulum "bob" and beat indicator are also original to the clock. There is a clean, eight-day movement with the seth thomas clock company name embossed into the brass front plate. The movement retains its original "geneva stop" these are often missing from other antique clocks. This is an added feature in better quality clock mechanisms that prevents overwinding. The movement is running well and keeps good time. The attractive case features turned side columns and an ornate "balcony" base design, or as it is sometimes called, a "book rack" bottom (see photograph). This is a nice example of the classic seth thomas "queen anne" model that will especially appeal to collectors who prefer a furniture finish.

Waterbury http://www.antiques.com/classified/4495/WATERBURY- Antique clock collectors refer to this attractive case style as a "chisel bottom" due to the slanted lower portion of the case (see photograph). A previous owner did some excellent restoration of this fine clock lending an exceptionally attractive appearance to the veneer as well as a precisely running eight-day brass, time-only movement. The replaced dial paper bears the waterbury clock company name. The lower door glass has been professionally restored with an attractive blue background and gold "bob" window surround. The 8-day movement has been recently serviced and runs perfectly, keeping good time. An old original waterbury label inside the lower door is complete and legible. We have listed this clock with a reasonable amount that reflects our conservative pricing policy. When found on the internet this type of clock often sells for more than $800. This beauty is ready to hang on your wall to provide years of trouble-free service.

Seth Thomas Eclipse Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4498/SETH-THOMAS-ECLIPSE-MANTLE-CLOCK The seth thomas "eclipse" mantle clock stands head and shoulders above most other production models as one of their most popular and sought-after clocks. We have sold over 20 of these in the past and are pleased to have this nice example to offer our customers at this time. The eight-day brass movement is clean and runs well, keeping good time and the hour and half/hour strike performs properly also. The pendulum that seth thomas used on these clocks was their special, extra fancy design with a decorative insert in the center (see our photograph). A perfect label is retained inside the case. The door glass is original with a gold pattern showing birds and floral design. And take a look at those "s" "t" hands (included on some of the better seth thomas clocks. There is also an alarm mechanism which is complete and working but adjusted so that it will not go off accidentally and wake the whole household. These alarms are no longer used by owners due to the fact that when wound they continue to sound the alarm without stopping until fully run down. This is a very nice example of this popular clock and priced at a lower than to be expected amount.

French 'baker's' Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4501/FRENCH---BAKER--S---CLOCK This french comptoise (the district where it was produced) "baker's clock" is in very good condition overall, with no age cracks as are so often found in this type of clock case. The frame features deep grooves in-painted black and a lovely brown mottled design on the higher ridges. The original door glass covers a painted dial. The hands are also original to the clock. The eight-day movement strikes the hours on a coil gong and once every half-hour as well. As with most french wall clocks, this one runs well without stopping providing it is hanging correctly on the wall. They demand proper positioning so that the "tick" is even. The dial is held in place by three long "hat-pin" like screws which are typical for this type clock. There were four pins originally. But the remaining three retain the dial quite securely. The pendulum "bob" is not original to the clock. To access the dial for winding and setting the hands, the entire door frame lifts up (see photograph). These graceful wall clocks are becoming a very popular decorator's item and are now frequently seen in home decorating magazines. Priced as low as we saw them several years ago.

Gustav Becker Vienna Regulator http://www.antiques.com/classified/4502/GUSTAV-BECKER-VIENNA-REGULATOR Gustav becker was one of germany's premier clockmakers. Because the german borders changed quite frequently due to various skirmishes and wars with neighboring countries, becker's clocks were variously marked as being made both in germany and poland. This fine example of his "vienna regulator" wall clock bears the engraved marking on the brass movement plate: freiburg-schlesien, then germany, (now poland). His clocks won the medal of honor at the paris exposition and repeatedly at other award contests for their excellence. This eight-day beauty runs perfectly, keeping excellent time and strikes the hours and half-hours on a melodious coil gong. The serial number stamped into the front plate of the movemet dates the clock as having been made around 1885. The brass weights are original to the clock as are the brass pulleys and pendulum with its porcelain beat scale. Brass wall levelers complete the fine quality of this classic clock. There is a very small and almost invisible restoration of one of the round "collars" on the right upper ornament. There are three good unbroken glasses and six finials. The two-piece porcelain dial has a subsidiary seconds dial,three old hands and brass rings. They don't come much nicer than this in my opinion.

Ansonia Clock Company- http://www.antiques.com/classified/4506/ANSONIA-CLOCK-COMPANY-- The ansonia clock company produced this attractive mantle clock in 1894 and named it the "delhi". The case is clean and with a perfect finish. The wonderful door glass with the ansonia name (see photograph) was used by the company on several of its better clocks. The dial is original with a replaced paper cover and the hands, nickel pendulum and nickel dial rings are also original to the clock. The top ornament retains its carved crest which adds to the value of this premium quality case from ansonia. Another in the collection of fourteen parlor clocks that we recently acquired from a southern gentleman who really knows his clocks !!

The Ingraham Clock Company- http://www.antiques.com/classified/4509/THE-INGRAHAM-CLOCK-COMPANY-- Those that peruse our web site and inventory of antique clocks have probably noticed that we recently added over 14 clocks...Many of which are fine-qualkity walnut cased mantle clocks. We received these from a fine southern gentleman whose taste in clocks is impeccable. This attractive specimen includes lots of originality. The door glass; pendulum; dial rings; movement; alarm mechanism and bell all started llife with the fancy walnut case around 1884. The eight-day movement is running briskly and keeping good time. The gong sounds once every half-hour and then strikes the full hours on the hour. The alarm mechanism sounds on a cup bell. The dial paper is a replacement and includes the correct ingraham name, correct hands complete this nice example of the clock that ingrahan named the "index". A good buy at a reasonable price to compliment these recessionary times.

Glibert Clock Company's- http://www.antiques.com/classified/4511/GLIBERT-CLOCK-COMPANY--S-- Clockmaking historians say that william gilbert was a demanding taskmaster, insisting on excellence on the part of his employees and clockmaking staff. His clocks were therefore well-made and highly sought-after by customers who wanted better quality timepieces. This clock was named "the prince" by gilbert and retains its originality throughout. There are no extra holes around the dial which marks it as original to the case and the eight-day brass movement runs well, keeping excellent time. The silver patterned door glass shows a marsh and pool with a crane and leaves in abundance. Note: there is a reflection on our photograph of the door glass. This is the camerman's fault and not a discoloration in the glass. The dial paper has been professionally replaced and correctly includes the gilbert name. You rarely find lower prices for high quality clocks such as this. It's another in the collection that we recently added to our showroom.

New Haven Clock Co. http://www.antiques.com/classified/4512/NEW-HAVEN-CLOCK-CO-- This little sweetheart is delightfully smaller than many so-called "school house" clocks and includes fancy and elaborate carvings on the wood oak case surrounding the dial. The dial with arabic numerals is original to the clock and in good condition. On the back of the case is the original label (see our photograph) which includes about 2/3rds of its printing. Fortunately the important wording including the name "branford" is retained. The eight-day mechanism is clean and running well, striking the hours on a clear coil gong. The pendulum "bob" has a fancy brass design (see photo). Overall, this is a hard-to-find version of the larger school house or "octagon" wall clocks. Priced to sell quickly in these economic recessionary times.

Ansonia Porcelain Clock, 'the Recruit' http://www.antiques.com/classified/4513/ANSONIA-PORCELAIN-CLOCK----THE-RECRUIT-- This beautiful porcelain clock is one of the ansonia clock companys porcelain line with the trade name 'recruit' fired into the porcelain back of the case. When the former owner offered the clock for sale we were under ther impression that it had a 30-hour mechanism. However, it turned out to have an 8-day movement which is clean and running well with a full strike on the hours and a single strike (passing strike) on the half hours. There is a small paint smudge on the rear edge of the top which appears to be as it came from the factory...Because it is fired under the glaze. It isn't at all distracting and we focus on it in our picture in the interest of full-disclosure. The clean, 8-day movement runs perfectly, keeping good time and the strike operates correctly as well. There are no chips, breaks, repairs or damage to the porcelain case. The dial is original with the correct ansonia trade mark. The hands and pendulum are also original to the clock. If mint, it would book for twice our price. And few would notice the little paint smudge on the rear of the top of the case. So, it becomes one of those great 'deals' for anyone seeking an absolutely beautiful blue and floral cased porcelain clock from ansonia.

Grain-painted Chisel-bottom Clock By Jc Brown http://www.antiques.com/classified/4514/GRAIN-PAINTED-CHISEL-BOTTOM-CLOCK-BY-JC-BROWN In the book entitled, "jonathan clark brown and the forestville manufacturing company", an identical movement to this clock is shown on page 48. Brown and e.N. Welch were partners in that clockmaking firm. The wooden case has been restored with an attractive hand-painted wood grain. When the lower door is opened, one of the most remarkable primitive paintings we've ever encountered is revealed on the inside the case. It depicts a country cottage with colorful surrounding scenery (see photograph). The painting even extends around the inside of the case. The white spot on the upper door glass at the numeral three is simply a reflection of the camera flash. This clock is typical of those produced by en welch; william gilbert and chauncey jerome who worked as partners during this period in connecticut. It includes brown's 'trademark' porcelain door knob. The dial is a later replacement with professionally painted signature including j.C. Brown's name and forestville, ct. My wife and i feel that the delightful, primitive painting inside the case makes this a prize 'find' for anyone who appreciates rare and unusual features in an antique clock.

Seth Thomas http://www.antiques.com/classified/4515/Antique-SETH-THOMAS- The seth thomas "queen anne" wall clock is highly prized by collectors for its classic lines and excellence of timekeeping. This clock has had a 'furniture finish' applied and retains its original painted dial, hands, pendulum "bob" and beat indicator. It has a clean eight-day movement keeping excellent time. The case features turned side columns and the ornate 'balcony' or 'book rack' on the bottom of the case(see photographs). It also retains the correct door lock, wall levelers and other case hardware. The nickel pendulum 'bob' has great damascening and includes its original pendulum stick. There is a nickel beat scale and dial ring. The eight-day movement is signed and has its original geneva stop (often missing from antique clocks). This is a very good example of the "queen anne" which will appeal to buyers who prefer a gloss case finish. Note: what appears to be a white line on the door glass in our photograph of the clock is only a reflection. The glass is perfect.

Seth Thomas Five Ball http://www.antiques.com/classified/4516/SETH-THOMAS-FIVE-BALL- I've never sold an antique clock as popular as the seth thomas "eclipse". Over the years, we've owned more of these than any other style. This beauty features a clean, good-running 8-day movement with working alarm. The dial paper has been renewed and the door glass is a quality and correct replacement. Notice the seth thomas clock company name on the cast iron gong base (see photograph) and the seth thomas name and logo on the brass movement front plate. Overall, this is an outstanding clock with an excellent solid walnut case and running well. Priced to sell to the advantage of the buyer. Compare our prices with any antique clocks of comparable quality and you'll find that old timers is the best place to shop.

'the Farren' Mantle Clock By The Terry Clock Company In Pittsfield, Massachusetts http://www.antiques.com/classified/4517/--THE-FARREN---MANTLE-CLOCK-BY-THE-TERRY-CLOCK-COMPANY-IN-PITTSFIELD--MASSACHUSETTS The original dial on this uncommon mantle clock has the following words printed on it: terry clock company sole manufacturers; pat. Sept. 26th 1882 pat. March 20th 1883. Luminous. Now, its anyone's guess what they meant by luminous?? But that mysterious notation on the dial surely adds to the charm of this nice clock. The beat scale inside the case (see photograph) bears the name terry clock company pittsfield, massachusetts usa. All of the components of this nice clock are identical to the original terry catalogue picture. This is the second clock we've added to our inventory this week made by the terry clock company in pittsfield. You don't see that many of them because this company only existed from about 1868 to 1880 after being organized by george bliss and the sons of silas burnham terry. It's a very nice example of a solid and handsome mantle clock from the descendants of the famed terry clockmaking family.

Ingraham http://www.antiques.com/classified/4518/INGRAHAM- We've been in the antique clock business for more than a quarter century....And never had a chance to own an ingraham "shekel". I was tempted to add this clock to our own collection, but my wife reminded me that we're in the business of selling clocks....So i agreed to put it onto our for sale inventory. The mechanism has had some work over the years and now runs properly. I always mention this so that buyers will understand that this movement has been running for over 117 years and needed some attention along the way. A former owner secured the movement to the back of the case using bolts instead of the usual screws. This results in a rock-solid attachment...Although it isn't the way the ingraham people initially installed it. I'd leave it alone since the nuts and bolts are behind the case and therefore invisible. The lion's head on the crown of the clock and the two small statues flanking the case have been re-gilded and are now finished in like-new bright gold. If you are looking for a very scarce antique clock with lots of interesting detail---you should give this beauty your most serious consideration.

The Terry Clock Company, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Eight-day http://www.antiques.com/classified/4519/THE-TERRY-CLOCK-COMPANY--PITTSFIELD--MASSACHUSETTS--EIGHT-DAY- The terry clock company was located in pittsfield, massachusetts, waterbury and winsted, connecticut. It was organized by the sons of silas b. Terry and later sold to russel and jones. This was their "highland" model, made in pittsfield, which featured lots of cut-outs in the solid walnut case and deep grooves all around. The dial paper has been renewed. A clean, 8-day movement is running perfectly and includes a working alarm mechanism. On the dial pan is a patent date of nov. 10, 1879. There are two labels on the clock...One with a red background on the floor inside the case- about 90% intact,(see photograph) and another on the back (about 75% intact). The fancy brass and nickle pendulum 'bob' is one of terry's signature designs. A curtain pattern door glass adds to the overall impact of this classy and elaborate clock. The back of the case is stamped with terry's factory mark "n96117". This is another hard-to-find clock by one america's pioneer clockmaking families.

Truly Rare Seth Thomas http://www.antiques.com/classified/4571/TRULY-RARE-SETH-THOMAS- We try not to describe a clock as rare unless it really is !! But, this particular clock has been deemed "rare" by several leading antique clock experts....So we will follow suit. The seth thomas "dixie" was made around 1924 and is one of their largest shelf clocks. The 28" height includes an abundance of applied brass ornamentation and the fancy pendulum "bob" compleats the "look" of this great clock. The dial pan was replaced at some time in the clock's history and matches the original perfectly. It includes the st logo and seth thomas name below the numeral six. In addition to all these features, there is an alarm mechanism---which adds even more to the value of the clock. If you're looking for a clock that will probably never again be available for sale, then this is the one for you!!

A Wonderful 115 Year Old Waterbury 'carlton' Wall Regulator http://www.antiques.com/classified/4574/A-WONDERFUL-115-YEAR-OLD-WATERBURY---CARLTON---WALL-REGULATOR Over 115 years ago, the waterbury clock company in connecticut produced this lovely wall regulator. The dial cover is original to the clock and retains the waterbury logo. Inside the case, the clean 8-day movement runs well and strikes the hours plus one strike on each half-hour. Even the beat meter and the black and gold paper lable with the waterbury name at the lower portion inside the case is original . On the rear of the case are two labels retaining most of their paper. This is a really attractive and impressive clock and priced lower than most of its type due to our policy of offering clocks at reasonable prices made possible by careful management and acquisition policies.

Waterbury http://www.antiques.com/classified/4578/WATERBURY- Antique clock collectors often refer to various clocks using commonly-accepted generic names. This type of clock is usually called a "chisel bottom" because of the slanted bottom on the case (see photograph). A previous owner did some careful restoration on this clock, lending a wonderful appearance and precise operational quality. The rosewood case veneer has a bold and rich colored pattern and the replaced dial bears the waterbury clock company name. The lower door features a 'bob' window with gold surround and a rich blue background. Inside the case is a clean eight-day movement that has been recently serviced and is running perfectly---keeping excellent time. The old waterbury label shows its age (see photograph) but is complete and legible. As with our other clocks, this beauty has been listed with a price that beats similar offerings on the internet and at most antiques shops where we've seen waterbury "chisel bottoms" selling for $800 and up. Our reasonable prices are the result of careful management and low overhead. This fine clock is ready to hang on the wall for years of trouble-free service. Special note: my wife brought to my attention the fact that in the overall photograph of this clock there is a little tab of brown showing near the bottom right side of the case. That is a cardboard 'shim' that i put behind the clock to level it. Our peg board walls are not level or 'plumb' so we need to use those cardboard pieces to allow the clocks to hang properly.

Ansonia http://www.antiques.com/classified/4582/ANSONIA- The ansonia clock company painted their initial "a" inside a diamond pattern on the lower door glass of this premium wall regulator(see photo). It was prized by business offices, jewelery stores and railroad stations as a clock that incorporated excellent time-keeping quality as well as adding a handsome and eye-appealing appearance on their wall. Modern clock collectors often have an 'a' (as they are often referred to) in their home or office. The solid walnut case on this clock is in excellent condition and the eight-day brass movement has been professionally cleaned and adjusted to insure accuracy and many more years of service for its next owner. The dial was professionally re-painted on the original dial pan and the hands and pendulum are also original to the clock. The upper door glass was replaced at some time in the clock's history. This is a really fine example of this desireable clock that has kept people, trains and office workers on schedule for over 100 years.

Ansonia http://www.antiques.com/classified/4590/ANSONIA- My grandmother used to say: "what's second is third". By that she meant that when something happens two times, it often happens again. That's been true this week regarding our latest additions to the clock inventory. We bought an ansonia "queen elizabeth" wall regulator last week and sold it almost before it was listed on our web site. Next we purchased an ansonia "queen anne" which is currently on our web site. And today, we purchased another ansonia "queen elizabeth"!! This beauty has a solid mahogany case and retains its original hands, pendulum with large brass 'bob' and eight-day movement which is running well and keeping good time. All of the victorian embellishments, spools, turned columns, finials etc. Are original to the case and in excellent condition. Even the door glass is original to the clock with the expected wavy old glass. In fact, the only fault i could find is that a previous owner replaced the dial pan...Or so it would seem. The clue to that observation is that there are five screws holding the dial onto the case instead of the usual three for this type clock. It's a very old dial pan and with the door closed, the extra screws are invisible of course, so i can't complain about the replaced dial. Overall, i'd rate this as an a- (it would rate a+ except for the dial replacement.) our price for this outstanding clock is well below most that we see on the internet and in shops these days. So, take advantage of the offer----it's a beauty !!!.

Seth Thomas #2 Eight-day Wall Regulator http://www.antiques.com/classified/4593/SETH-THOMAS--2-EIGHT-DAY-WALL-REGULATOR The seth thomas clock company retained their thomaston, connecticut address on the label inside their #2 regulators even though only the movements were made in connecticut after they moved to new york city. The older trapazoid-shaped movements like the one in this clock are more sought-after because they have not been duplicated or reproduced overseas (as have some of the square-plate movements). The dials on most seth thomas #2 clocks have pretty well flaked away and on this clock, the original dial was restored professionally on its old zinc pan. There are no extra dial screw holes on the case-- attesting to the originality of this dial pan. Both door glasses are original as is the pendulum, bob and weight. This is one of the nicer examples of this genre with the 'chimneys' on the bottom of the case retaining all their "buttons'. The 2004 price guide to seth thomas clocks lists this model at $2500. Our price......Four years later remains the same ($2495)due to a fortunate buy from a friend who is selling his clocks to me at great prices.

Fancy Walnut Mantle Clock By The E. Ingraham Co.-bristol, Ct http://www.antiques.com/classified/4603/FANCY-WALNUT-MANTLE-CLOCK-BY-THE-E--INGRAHAM-CO--BRISTOL--CT The e. Ingraham clock company named this model the "ingot". Its fancy case reflects the victorian love of elaborate attachments, turnings and wood trim. Made in 1880, this is a very nicely restored clock that runs strongly, keeping excellent time and striking the hours properly. The 1880 patent date is stamped into the brass dial bezel and the face is clean and well preserved with the logo of the e. J. Swiggart company of cincinnati, ohio. Many antique clocks include a swiggart dial. His initials seem to be a mystery to some antique dealers. But research articles by the national association of watch and clock collectors document his services to the industry in the 19th century. This clock is a handsome example of the ingraham company's extensive line of clocks and watches.

Admiral Dewey Commemorative Clock By The E.ingraham Clock Company http://www.antiques.com/classified/4607/ADMIRAL-DEWEY-COMMEMORATIVE-CLOCK-BY-THE-E-INGRAHAM-CLOCK-COMPANY The e. Ingraham clock company in bristol, connecticut produced a line of historically commemorative clocks with oak cases embossed to display american heros.The cases included various complimentary patterns and the door glasses were appropriate to the person being honored on the top crown of the clock case. This clock features admiral george dewey who was the only person in united states history to hold the honorary rank of admiral of the navy. This honor was bestowed on dewey by congress in 1899 following his defeat of the entire spanish navy during the battle of manila the previous year without loss of any u.S. Sailors. The eight-day clock mechanism is clean and running strongly with a full strike on the hours and one strike each half-hour. The case has been restored with a gloss finish and the door glass is original and displays the ship commanded by the admiral. There is an alarm mechanism in the case which has been disconnected from the clock movement. Many owners did this to prevent interference with the clock's operation. "dewey" clocks have been selling for over $800 for several years. This represents a good buy for the next owner of the clock.

Lux Clock In Brush-mccoy Pottery Jug http://www.antiques.com/classified/4612/LUX-CLOCK-IN-BRUSH-McCOY-POTTERY-JUG The lux clock company produced a large number and variety of clocks. Many have become very sought-after collectibles and bring high prices. This particular lux clock is cased in an equally collectible pottery jug that was made by the brush-mccoy pottery company of zanesville, ohio. Bm was founded in 1911 after the original j.W. Mccoy pottery company was destroyed by a disasterous fire in 1909. Early pottery by this company had no identifying marks. However, after 1915 there were name and logo marks on their wares. The lux clock in this fine piece runs well and keeps good time. This clock is pictured on page # 45 of sanford's brush mccoy book with the title "jug time". It was patented on october 21st, 1924. We have priced it favorably for either pottery collectors or lux fanciers. Free shipping will be offered on this item within the continental united states. Don't overlook this scarce item that is also very decorative as well as functional.

"lion's Heads" New Haven 'norwich Line' Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4615/--LION--S-HEADS---NEW-HAVEN---NORWICH-LINE---MANTLE-CLOCK The "norwich line" of mantle clocks which were manufactured by the new haven clock company around 1907 have become much-sought-after by today's collectors. This particular design with the bold lions heads is by far the most attractive and hard to find. In their year-2000 price guide, arlington books valued this clock at $395, so.....Seven years later, our firm asking price is a real bargain. The reason that we are offering this particular clock for such a low amount is the fact that a former owner replaced the dial (face) of the clock. The extra holes around the dial pan are evidence of this "upgrade" although they are not visible when the door is closed. Except for that, we'd price the clock for at least $100 more. The dial looks fine as the clock stands on the shelf, so we are confident that the new owner will be pleased with it. We are therefore selling it 'as-is'without a return privilege. The eight-day brass movement runs well and has been recently serviced and cleaned. The door glass is original and in excellent condition. In fact, overall, this is a really nice and very scarce model clock which we have only found one other time through the years.

Black Forest Cuckoo With Grape Cluster http://www.antiques.com/classified/4617/BLACK-FOREST-CUCKOO-WITH-GRAPE-CLUSTER Good-quality antique black forest cuckoo clocks that have been cleaned and restored to excellent operating condition are hard to find...Especially at this low price. We've found a supplier who has a sizeable collection of these charming clocks and will be offering them to us...One by one...Over the coming months. This great example is in the dramatic darker finish which makes a wonderful statement as it hangs on the wall. The 30-hour movement has been professionally serviced and the cuckoo sings his call---once each half-hour and then cuckoos full hours at twelve o'clock. The original old bird bows and flaps his wings as he sings his merry song. There are eight deeply carved leaves on the case and a cluster of grapes at the lower portion of the decorations. The numerals are pinned (rather than the later versions that were usually glued onto the dial)....Marking this as an older clock. The hands are later replacements. I frequently see these selling for well over $1,000 and not in very good shape at that. So, this is a great "buy" for the next owner of this nice cuckoo clock. As a courtesy to our cuckoo clock buyers, we will send a complimentary copy of the charming children's book entitled the cuckoo clock by mary stolz. The lovely illustrations and delightful story in this long-out-of-print book will enchant every cuckoo clock owner as well as their children and grandchildren.

S.c. Spring Column And Cornice 8-day Weight Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4620/S-C--SPRING-COLUMN-AND-CORNICE-8-DAY-WEIGHT-CLOCK Solomon c. Spring was born on january 29th, 1826 in granby, connecticut. Early in his life, he was employed in the clock shop of silas burnham terry. Spring then moved to bristol, connecticut where he worked as a clockmaker for the rev. Irenus atkins owner of the atkins clock company. In 1864, at the age of 38, he bought the land and buildings of the old birge, peck and company (clock makers) in bristol and renamed it the s.C. Spring clock company. The company never issued a catalogue so its hard to know how many styles they made. Most of their clocks were sold to other clock manufacturers, so to find one with the s.C. Spring label in the case is a wonderful "find" indeed !!! Spring retired in 1895 and died in 1906 after producing some excellent and very attractive clocks. This example of his work includes an intact label which although it is flaked, retains the full s.C. Spring clock company bristol, connecticut imprint(see photograph). The case is in a wonderful state of preservation and features faux marble columns with their original gilded sections. The veneer graining is bold and nothing short of spectacular!! The painted dial has been cleaned and the movement was recently completely serviced, polished and put into perfect operating condition. The victorian lady on the reverse-painted lower door glass reflects the type of work that was popular in that day. We set the price low for this excellent clock and it will surely grace any mantle or clock shelf on which it is displayed. Note: as an added bonus, a complimentary copy of the february 1978 bulletin of the national association of watch and clock collectors in which there is an extensive article detailing and illustrating the life and work of solomon c. Spring, will be included with the clock to its next owner.

Attractive Seth Thomas Pillar And Scroll Mantle Clock With Floral Tablet http://www.antiques.com/classified/4625/ATTRACTIVE-SETH-THOMAS-PILLAR-AND-SCROLL-MANTLE-CLOCK-WITH-FLORAL-TABLET Seth thomas was born on august 18th, 1785 and died on january 28th,1859. He worked for eli terry making cases until 1810 when he and silas hoadley purchased terry's business and continued making clocks as thomas and hoadley until 1813. In 1818 he purchased the right to manufacture the shelf clock developed by eli terry. In 1822, thomas and terry had a misunderstanding about terry's patent rights which in 1827 resulted in a law suit against thomas. Terry later dropped the suit. When the clock business was slow, thomas had his workers perform farming operations until they were needed once again in the clock works. This beautiful example of his wood works mantle clock that is now known as a "pillar and scroll", features the unique and attractive floral reverse-painted lower door glass. This has been professionally repainted as original and makes a very eye-appealing clock whereever it is placed in the home. The paper label inside the case is in excellent condition...A sure sign that the clock has had good care during its century-and-a-half of timekeeping. The 30-hour wood-works movement runs well and strikes the hours on a clear bell. The brass finials are old but probably not original to the clock...As is often the case. Pillar and scroll clocks are becoming very difficult to find...At least those that are in such outstanding condition. We've heard lots of reports from persons who bought a pillar and scroll clock from an unknown source only to discover a terrible mess in the movement that cost hundreds of dollars to repair and correct. Our wood works clocks are carefully examined and serviced by a master clock repairman and then run in the shop for several weeks before we offer them for sale....To make certain they are in good running order. This is an exceptional value for the price.

Cornice And Column Eight-day Mantle Clock By Daniel Pratt, Jr.-boston http://www.antiques.com/classified/4628/CORNICE-AND-COLUMN-EIGHT-DAY-MANTLE-CLOCK-BY-DANIEL-PRATT--JR--BOSTON Daniel pratt, jr. Was born in 1797 and died in 1871. He was a clockmaker in reading, massachusetts (near boston). After 1849. His clocks used brass movements that were probably made in connecticut. Pratt's boston store address was 49 union street which is listed on the paper label inside this clock case (see photograph). The label retains a lithographed print showing the inside of pratt's clock manufacturing works. This very nice example of his work has a reverse painting on the lower door glass that shows the old merchants exchange building in philadelphia. The painting has evidence of age, but may not be original to this case. That building was popular with clockmakers who often chose it for their better quality mantle clocks. There is an alarm mechanism inside the case and the strap brass eight-day, weight powered mechanism has been recently cleaned and serviced (see photograph) for good running order. Most antique clocks that we find have dirty, corroded and often defective movements. Ours are completely disassembled and hand cleaned and serviced before offering them for sale. This one will look very handsome on any mantle or shelf in the next owner's home.

Ephraim Downs Pillar And Scroll Wood Works Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4631/EPHRAIM-DOWNS-PILLAR-AND-SCROLL-WOOD-WORKS-MANTLE-CLOCK Ephraim downs was born in 1787 and died in 1860. During his working career, he was associated with many other noted clockmakers including luman watson, silas hoadley, eli terry and seth thomas. His mill is listed in the history of bristol, connecticut. This fine example of his work has a lovely case with very attractive undamaged veneer. The brass finials are later additions. The wood dial is an old original with a small area of paint fill-in at the upper left corner (mostly hidden when the door is closed). The wood works were recently professionally serviced and run well including the hour-strike on a clear pleasant cup bell. The door glasses are replacements and correct to the case. The paper label inside the case is quite readable although stained. This is another consignment clock from a nearby collector/expert and priced considerably lower than the other pillar and scrolls in our current inventory. A very attractive, working clock that will look simply great on your mantle or clock shelf.

Gilbert Clock Company, 'mirrorsides' Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4633/GILBERT-CLOCK-COMPANY----MIRRORSIDES---MANTLE-CLOCK The william l. Gilbert clock company was founded in 1866 after many affiliations with other clock makers in the region. The company continued until the 1960's and made many fine clocks including this beauty that they produced around 1891 and which most people call a 'mirrorsides'. The gilded cherubs that stand on each side of the case and reflect in the original old mirrors are replacements. The old dial has become brown with age but is unstained and clearly readable. We like them that way, rather than the pasted-over replacement dials found on many antique clocks. The original gilbert label is retained on the back of the case (see photograph) and the hands and "grapeleaf" pendulum is also original to the clock. A 'cathedral gong' resonator is an outstanding feature of this particular clock...Giving it a deep resonant tone when it strikes the hours and one time on the half-hours. The door glass also appears to be original. Note: in our photos of this clock, the wood finials that hang down on each side appear to be leaning. That's because they are removeable and i didn't straighten them when i set up the clock before snapping the picture. They hang perfectly even and straight now. Overall---a real honey of a clock...Priced right and lower than most of this type that are sometimes seen on the internet and at antiques shops.

The movement runs for eight-days with a strike on the hours and once on the half-hours. The inside of the backboard is covered with a clean dark grey paper. The cherubs and mirrors are later replacements. The beautiful original door glass retains the old ansonia name and there is an alarm mechanism which is in working condition. Overall, one of the more attractive clocks in our current collection and priced appropriately for the benefit of the buyer.

Ephraim Downs, Pillar And Scroll Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4640/EPHRAIM-DOWNS--PILLAR-AND-SCROLL-MANTLE-CLOCK Not all of the pillar and scroll mantle clocks bore paper labels that identified the clockmaker. This one has never had a label on the old backboard of the case. However, careful research in the archives of the national association of watch and clock collectors wood works movement identification bulletins have positively identified this clock as having been made by ephraim downs in bristol, connecticut around 1824. The original dial is in far better condition than most that we see. I'd rate it as excellent...Retaining its original paint and gesso on the wooden dial board. The wood works have been professionally serviced and have had the required restoration to assure that they will provide good running quality for the next owner of this clock. The center scene on the lower door glass has been restored by a master reverse-painter in our area and the upper glass is also the old original...With wavy lines to prove it. The right scroll has been professionally and almost impercepibly repaired. This is a golden opportunity for a buyer who wants a fine pillar and scroll clock at a lower-than-usual price made by one of the old connecticut clockmakers...Around 1824.

Classic Hubert Herr Cuckoo/quail Black Forest Wall Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4645/CLASSIC-HUBERT-HERR-CUCKOO-QUAIL-BLACK-FOREST-WALL-CLOCK Hubert herr began his clockmaking career around 1898 as a carver who was unique in that he also made his own movements. Later, he hired others to join him in establishing a cuckoo clock manufacturing works in triberg (black forest) germany. This remarkable example of his work bears his name stamped into the brass plate of the movement(indicating pride of workmanship---many cuckoo clock makers omitted their name), and the inscription 'germany' under the numeral '6' on the dial....Confirms the dating range of this clock because the mckinley tarrif act of 1891 required all imports to be marked as to the country of origin. Later, after 1914, this act was revised to require the additional words 'made in' to be added to the country of origin name. This suggests that this clock was produced by herr before the year 1914. The brass movement is clean and operating well. Both the cuckoo and the quail sing their songs stoutly flapping their wings as they bow and open their beaks during these performances. The bellows appear to be original and are in good condition for continued service well into the future. 20 evergreen leaves and two large pine cones complete the casework carvings topped by a substantial alpine bird on the top crown of the case. The hands and numerals are also original to the clock and other than a couple of re-glued parts on the ornamentation which are not at all noticeable as the clock hangs on the wall, this is an almost perfect presentation of herr's reknowned work. The pendulum and cast pine cone weights are also the old originals. This is surely one really fine example of the early black forest clockmaking industry. As a courtesy to our cuckoo buyers, we will send a complimentary copy of the charming children's book entitled the cuckoo clock by mary stolz. The lovely illustrations and delightful story in this long-out-of-printbook will enchant every cuckoo clock owner as well as their children and grandchildren.

Andrews established his clockmaking company in bristol, connecticut around 1850 and some years later moved the business to new york city. This handsome 'triple-decker' or "cornice and column" mantle clock includes a professionally-cleaned and well-adjusted, brass eight-day weight-driven movement with a strike on the hours. The wood dial (with a few touch-ups),and the hands are also original to the clock. The door glasses include colorful scenic and floral reverse paintings with professionally- restored borders and background. There is enough of the original paper label inside the case to clearly read the maker's name (f.C. Andrews) as well as a charming american flag imprint (see photograph). The clock is in excellent running condition and strikes the hours properly on a coil gong. This will make an eye-appealing addition to anyone's mantle or wall shelf...And like our other clocks...It's priced reasonably due to careful management practices and our long-standing policy of listing clocks at sensible prices!!

Cottage Clock By E.n. Welch Clock Company http://www.antiques.com/classified/4650/COTTAGE-CLOCK-BY-E-N--WELCH-CLOCK-COMPANY 30-hour shelf clocks were often used in modest homes that couldn't afford a grandfather (tall case) clock or more expensive timekeeper. These are therefore known in the trade as 'cottage clocks'. This little sweetheart has pretty veneer with a few chips off the bottom edge of the case and a some rubs on the top (see photographs). The zinc dial is perfect, having been repainted professionally and the lower door glass is quite colorful with some flaking in the center of the design which has been filled-in properly.

Miniature Octagon-drop http://www.antiques.com/classified/4655/MINIATURE-OCTAGON-DROP- The venerable old clock company named meiji was located in nagoya, japan beginning around 1895. In addition to seikosha, the meiji (pronounced like my gee)clock company affiliated with the ansonia clock company in new york to produce ansonia type movements for their oriental clocks. Later, the meiji clock company produced many thousands of clocks and movements that were derivatives of the ansonia style and which they considered an improved design. The meiji clock company produced many different styles of clocks, most of which were based on american designs. This little beauty is in the style of a miniature eight-day 'schoolhouse' clock. The soft wood case has been delightfully refinished in a honey-tone color reminiscent of walnut or butternut. The eight-day movement is clean and runs and strikes the hours properly. A "grape leaf" style pendulum compliments the overall appearance of this nice little clock. On the iron gong base are cast the words meiji clock company. The movement displays the letters "s.B." which to date, we have not been able to identify. The clean dial is original to the clock with the numerals painted on the zinc. Several additional screws have been added over the years to fasten the dial securely. The hands are also original to the clock (see photograph). This is surely a 'honey' of a clock with an appropriate honey-colored finish that will compliment any setting in which it is displayed.

Rare S.s. Higby Wood Works Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4658/RARE-S-S--HIGBY-WOOD-WORKS-MANTLE-CLOCK Because this clock was made by a rarely found maker, it is surely a collectors dream! The original lower door glass retains its "lady in the flower" design (with original putty); the stenciling on the half columns is very nice and the eagle on the top splat is excellent (and seems to be original). The paint on the back of the reverse eglomise is lifting a little but remains quite stable...Don't touch or finger it and it should remain as it is forever! The old wood movement is complete but appears to be a replacement. It runs for a while and stops. It could be adjusted for good running if the next owner chooses to do so. The paper label inside the case is a delight! The name ss higby is intact and reads: 's s hibgy new hartford center conn.' there are also several signatures on the back of the door with dates when the clock was serviced and the names of those who performed the work. One reads "j. Bailey september 5, 1838; another says j.S. Wiskey september 18, 1852. Another lists the date 1875 and the is also a signature of a joseph way sdated 1877. These marks inside clocks add immeasurably to their charm and help date the piece as well. A really intriguing feature is found on the inside of the case. One of the clock's early owners has glued a hand-written letter onto the wooden back--probably to keep dust out of the movement. If the works were removed from the clock, you could easily read this letter which seems to include a signture. Who knows--it may be an important historical document??!! The price for this clock has been kept lower than one would have expected for a clock by such a rarely found maker. Except for the replaced (though old) wood works movement, this clock appears to be entirely original.

Soloman C. Spring 8-day Cornice And Column Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4661/SOLOMAN-C--SPRING-8-DAY-CORNICE-AND-COLUMN-MANTLE-CLOCK Some connecticut clock firms did not make their own movements but purchased them from competitors. Clock hands, dials, cases and other parts were made by various bristol, connecticut firms and sold between the makers. Through the years, john birge had over 14 partners although he himself was neither a clockmaker or salesman. Instead, he financed the makers with whom he was associated through the years. One of these many associations was named birge, peck and company. Later, the three remaining partners of this firm sold their water rights, factory buildings and property to soloman c. Spring on april 29th, 1864. Spring had worked for silas b. Terry and irenus atkins before launching his own clockmaking enterprise. Among other types of movements that he made was this eight-day weight-driven strap brass works. The label said, "regulator/strike extra eight day rolling pinion brass clocks/ manufactured by s.C. Spring successor to birge, peck and company, bristol, connecticut. The label in this particular clock is mostly gone by now (see photograph), but was certain to have had this wording when new. Note that the movement in this clock was modified from that used by birge, peck and co. In that the friction plate, 12 hour count wheel originally designed by noble jerome was used in place of the 24 hour ives type mounted on the great wheel. This was the last of the roller pinion type movements by joseph ives. This excellent example of the work of soloman spring retains its original finish, a wonderful primitive reverse painted door glass (see photograph) with a few minor touch ups and fine gilded capitals and pediments. Inside the case is the business card of a repairman named h.E.K. Erb with his address in pottstown, pennsylvania and penciled notations indicating the dates when he overhauled the movement of this clock(see photograph). For the clock collector who knows and appreciates an historic piece of connecticut clockmaking, and wants to have one of the remaining examples of this type clock...This is the one for you!!

M.w. Atkins 8-day Triple Decker Cornice And Column Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4664/M-W--ATKINS-8-DAY-TRIPLE-DECKER-CORNICE-AND-COLUMN-MANTLE-CLOCK The m.W. Atkins clock company was founded by merritt atkins, his son thomas atkins and irenus atkins in 1840 at bristol, connecticut. Their company was the successor to the old atkins and porter clock company. Merritt atkins was born in 1804 and died at the age of 69 in 1873. This wonderful example of his unique clockmaking skill features the rare brass movement configuration that is known and sought-after by clock historians and horologists. It is unusual because of the configuration on the strike side gearing. This was designed by atkins to avoid violating the jerome striking patent. It sometimes resulted in mechanical problems. However, our clockmaker seems to have adjusted this movement very well and it is striking the hours properly (although at about 3 minutes before each hour). The eight-day brass weight-driven movement runs well and strikes the hours on a resonant coil gong. The door glasses are old originals, probably made in new york(see photographs). They retain much of their original paint, with some loss as expected. The label (see photograph) has a wonderful american eagle with the e pluribus unum motto and retains the m.W. Atkins name as well as bristol, connecticut. Overall, this is a very scarce example of the ingenious work of one of connecticut's well-known clockmakers. Priced lower than expected due to the fact that it has been consigned to old timers llc by a nationally known clock collector who is reducing his inventory.

Rare Double Door 8-day Og Mantle Clock http://www.antiques.com/classified/4668/RARE-DOUBLE-DOOR-8-DAY-OG-MANTLE-CLOCK The forestville manufacturing company was founded in bristol, connecticut around 1835 and continued making clocks under that name until 1839. The company, established by j.C. Brown;j. Goodrich;l.Walters; chauncey boardman and w. Hills made eight day movements and used various labels. The company later became the e.N. Welch clock company and finally the sessions clock company. Most of their og clocks (so-called because of the case design) incorporated a single door. A few however featured two doors and were known as 'double-door o.G.S'. This is one of those very scarce double-door ogs and retains its original painted wooden dial which includes the name of the company and is in a wonderful state of preservation, with only a couple age lines (see photograph). The eight-day weight-powered movement has been professionally cleaned and adjusted for perfect operation. The strike sounds each hour and the lower door glass has its original fenn glass (see photograph). Fenn was a renowned painted and designer of reverse painted door glasses used on some of the better-quality clocks in the 19th century. The label inside the clock is mostly flaked off and gone, but enough remains to identify the case as being original to the dial on which the forestville name is printed. This is what some clock experts call a "collector's clock"--very scarce and collectible and priced reasonably in that regard.

My wife and i never pass up the opportunity of purchasing a nice clock shelf when we find one--which is not all that often! Many of our customers say they would like to buy a clock if they only had a place to put it. So, we've collected all the pretty shelves we can find to accomodate that need. This particular shelf has a lot going for it! It not only has two drawers under the top shelf; but also a "what-not" display area below the upper deck. The shelf was probably made by a home craftsman in the early 20th century when many things were "home-made" including clothing, ice cream and many children's toys. In those days, there weren't all sorts of home builders shops or craft stores selling shelves and other ready-made items. The fathers just went out to the shed or barn, picked out some scrap lumber or pieces from old discarded furniture and made their own shelves and other necessities. This is a really nice shelf...And by the way, the clock and "what-nots" in the picture are not included with the shelf!! Note: the top dimensions of this shelf are 19" across by 4.75" deep.
