These things are pretty cool and it seems some of you may also enjoy taking a look at them.
These are old very early 1900's clock/thermostats. They are patented anywhere from 1907 to 1918 I do also have keys for some of them to wind up the clocks. Some thermostats and clocks work. 1890 to around the beginning of World War I had been considered the Brass Era. The reason being that it seems everything metal was made of brass during this time.
It seems someone put them on this wood board for display purposes. I have to figure out a way to take them off without ruining them. They seem to be nailed on somehow from the back to the piece of wood. I will figure it out somehow.... ; ) The 4th picture is the back of a seperate, yet similar one, that is not on the wood board.
Apparently the Honeywell company as we know it bought The Minneapolis Co. a ways back. So the history behind these is kinda cool.
Peace out... : )
