    Pretty neat application. What is the large hole on the right side of the back cover for? Did this clock also control an electric range circuit, and/or was it an audible alarm?

    Bruce99,
    The wire you can see through the large hole in the back is for the alarm bell hammer (my terminology might not be correct). It is a very loud audible alarm.
    I have no idea what the post are for, (1 at each winding key), but they are smooth and don't appear to be anything to connect a wire or anything to. I tried to unscrew them, but don't think they are a type of screw.
    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

    I see. It's a vintage "Kitchen Clock".

    A lot of early American Clock manufacturers like Ingraham, New Haven, Waterbury, Seth Thomas and Sessions made elaborate pressed or carved wood (usually Oak or Walnut) case clocks which are often referred to as "Gingerbread Clocks". Those with alarm movements are also known as Kitchen Clocks.

    Thanks for the info and for sharing some of your collection. You have very nice clocks and watches.

    Regards,

    Bruce

    Thanks Bruce.
    Were these made by Westinghouse or someone like Westclox (Big Ben type)?
