Clock left behind by seller. I suggested to my wife put it in garage sale its just a homely clock. Decided to open it up and read the paper lable Rocket Time Piece Jerome & Co New Haven Conn. Research sez Chauncy Jerome made wood clocks and his brother made wood clock cases in the early 18oo's. Changed to brass and had a booming business. Eventually Formed the New Haven Clock Co.
Then went broke after buying a Bridgeport clock co. and died broke in 1868. New Haven used the name Jerome &Co on their clocks til 1904. Haven't removed the face to see the works. It's nailed to the case with tiny nails. Face is missing a lot of numbers and someone put them on with a ballpoint pen. Wound it and it ticks right along. Enjoy and thanks for looking.

    Ball Point Pen? Arrrgh! They probably started to "clean" the face with something abrasive...

    It also looks like someone may have "restored" the finish with Polyurethane. At least they didn't mess around with the label!

    As you know, it's a very nice clock from a historically significant and important American Clock Manufacturer. Are you going to keep it?

    Someone has destroyed a lot of the historical value but it looks like everything is still there.

    It would be a good restoration project for someone who enjoys restoring antiques to their original condition.

    Thanks for sharing.

    You're welcome pickingupbones. I'm just here as a collector to enjoy learning new things and "meeting" fellow collectors, but I don't come here to buy or sell. If you do decide to sell, good luck. I hope you find a good home for them. This one has been abused.

    Best Regards
