This Sessions mantle clock only has Sessions on the front, and inside the back it has a four digit number only, #8367. I have not been able to find anything at all about this clock.
Does anyone know who the maker is, and what year it was made? Any information would be great!
Thanks!

    Hi, welcome to Collectors Weekly. The general style of your mantel clock is properly referred to as a "Tambour", although they are commonly referred to as Napoleon Hats, Camel or Hump Back. They were very popular American Mantel Clocks in the 20's and 30's and some manufacturers still make them today. Your clock was made by a company named "Sessions". You can read more about the company here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/clocks/sessions. Without measurements I can't be certain but it looks like you have a model they called the "Superb" from circa 1925. It is described in my reference materials as measuring 19" long and 9 1/2" high. Mahogany Finish Case; 5" white or silver dial; gold plated sash; silver bezel; eight-day hour and half-hour strike on cathedral gong. Yours may have originally retailed for $14.75. If your clock matches that description we've found it and solved your mystery (please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your Post). If not, let us know what your clock's measurements are and we'll keep looking. Make sure your case measurements are from edge-to-edge so that you get the longest straight distance possible. Hope this helps.
