This clock came from my late mother-in-law’s house. My wife grew up listening to the sound of it and is now pleased to hear it again. It was not running when we got it but a friend overhauled it at a discount ($65) and now it keeps perfect time. I did one minor repair myself when I adjusted one of the wires that comes from the shaft that is used to activate the strike train. This put the chimes back in synch.
It is an EN Welch/Sessions; the movement has Welch on it and the case matches one from the clockprof.com which he says is a Sessions. I know the takeover results in a lot of “hybrids” as we have here.
As with any quality workmanship, I am pleased to admire this and now find old clocks quite fascinating. Also, as you can see, the alarm mechanism is not in the case though I would not use it.
Appreciate your site and will look back often to read other stories.
