  1. It's often referred to as an "Anniversary Clock" because it should run for over a year on one winding...so you wind it annually or on an Anniversary.
  2. Welcome Drossmill06. You've pretty much said it all. You have an "Owl" from the Gilbert Clock Company. Reportedly from circa 1891. The "June 8 1879" is probably a patent date. Here's a document...
  3. I'm not certain but I think your clock was probably made after 1968. The battery powered quartz movement may be a replacement. It's a nice looking clock in good shape. Apparently, there were a num...
  4. Welcome to Collectors Weekly Jesiejj and thanks for sharing your lovely example of a Gilbert "Athol" model enameled wood case mantel clock with us. My reference has the circa of this model from ...
  5. Hello Tank, This is not an antique Seth Thomas. The Seth Thomas Company was bought by General Time in 1930. Seth Thomas/General Time was in turn purchased by Talley Industries in 1968 so your clock...
  6. That was my beer way back when I drank the stuff. I even remember their "Champagne of Bottled Beers" slogan before I saw it on your clock. They really burned their ad material into the surviving bra...
  7. Not quite sure why, but your clock brings to mind the "Mod Squad". Colors are bound to fade with time but it still "Pops". Very nice example. Thanks for sharing it Russ!
  8. Hi SpiritBear. Nice pick. Your New Haven Clock is from their "Dandy Line" as you've pointed out for us already. There were three different models in this line designated "A", "B" and "C". Yours i...
  9. You're very welcome BobbyK! :)
  10. Hello Bobby. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Your Seth Thomas "Sentinel 2" is from circa 1928. It could have been manufactured several years before or after that date but it was after WWI but certain...
  11. Nice looking clock. I'm thinking that it may have some information stamped on one of the movement plates. It probably uses a German manufactured movement but you would have to partially disassemble...
  12. Beautiful indeed! Depending upon who manufactured the clock's movement (Jerome & New Haven) I believe that this general style of clock is sometimes also referred to as "Anglo-American". Love the Mar...
  13. Nice pick. Looks great! Thanks for sharing.
  14. Regarding "Russells" that may be the Logo/Name of Russells LTD out of Liverpool England. They were Watch and Clock Makers in their own right and most certainly could have used French Movements manufa...
  15. That's a French Movement. Judging by what I can see, my guess is that it could be from circa 1875 give or take 15 years. It looks like there is a serial number of the pendulum. If so, it should hav...
  16. Can you show us a well lit photo of the clock's movement?
  17. I've never seen an "art piece" quite like this either. I take it that the movement is electric or battery powered? Can you provide any information or photos of the movement?
  18. You can view examples of Waterbury Willard Numbers 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 here: http://www.antiquewaterburyclocks.com/Waterbury-Model-Names.php
  19. This is the problem when there are multiple posts on the same clock. Dave is right, you have a Waterbury "Willard No. 13" from circa 1927 so it should fit right in with your 1920's home! :) Water...
  20. What you have here Bulldog is a Waterbury "Willard No. 13" from circa 1927. The Tablet is original and the subject is said to be "Good Fellowship". The clock should have an Eagle Finial on top. H...
  21. Bulldog, what I think you have here is a Waterbury "Willard No. 13". Although I haven't found an exact match or example, I did locate a Waterbury "Willard No. 14". See this link: http://www.justans...
  22. Looks like a genuine antique clock to me. The Willards signed the clock's dial face. Although your clock's face has lost some paint, I don't see any trace of a Willard signature. See this example: ...
  23. Refinishing antique finishes can be a controversial topic. One thing is for certain, they really brought out the beauty of the grain pattern with the French Polish technique they used. They may have...
  24. At least one American Clock Manufacturer honored the Willard family by naming Banjo Clock models after the family name. The lyric is from a "Stein Song" by Richard Hovey. As near as I can tell, th...
  25. Hi Hutchy, Okay, that explains a lot. Thanks for taking the time to do so. I'm glad it wasn't converted to a battery-powered quartz clock. I usually hate when that happens! Thanks again for shari...
  26. The serial numbers won't give you answers to the questions you've asked. You'll need to either remove the dial or the movement to see the front surface of the front plate. That's typically where yo...
  27. You should really post a photo which shows the entire clock case. We can't see the entire top of the case for example. You should also provide case measurements. Based on what we can see, it looks ...
  28. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  29. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  30. What are the clock's measurements? I think Dave is right. It looks like an Empire No. 1. Circa 1909 is about right. They probably ranged about 5 years plus or minus that date.
  31. Another nice example. Thanks for sharing!
  32. Congrats on finding this example. I don't see any windup keys on the back and have noticed a sweep seconds hand. Has this clock been converted into a battery powered quartz? It's a nice looking ex...
  33. To me, this looks like it may have fit into a dashboard or control panel of some type. I would suggest that you register as a user at the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors message bo...
  34. I obviously disagree Rose. Those "switches" on the AM/PM indicator dial look like they can be rotated to different settings. I don't think it's an alarm clock. Not in the traditional sense anyway b...
  35. If I had to guess (and I do have to) I would guess that it is some type of mechanical timer mechanism. The 24 hour disk on the back has two tabs. Most likely they "flipped" some type of rotary elect...
  36. Waltham Clocks and Watches go way back with Railroads in the U.S. Thanks for sharing and welcome to C.W.!
  37. Interesting. I've seen examples with June 13 and June 1882. There may be two patents which apply to various parts used in the movement. I've seen examples with three. Give us a clear close up and...
  38. If you look closely, you'll see that you're referring to the movement's "Patent" date. The patent on the movement doesn't mean the clock was made in that year. American clock manufacturers often used...

  40. It's not very easy to actually see what you're referring to because of the shaddow/lighting and lack of detail in your one photo which actually shows the clock's case but the contours of the marble ca...
  41. Looks like you may have a model called the "El Tirso" from circa 1907. There's a slight difference in your clocks' dome/top but otherwise it looks like an exact match to the catalog illustration in m...
  42. You have an Ansonia "El Chico" from circa 1901. Search eBay "Sold" listings for Ansonia Marble Mantel Clocks. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_sadis=15&_dmd=1&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_ipg=200&_stpo...
  43. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Your photos are a little dark but I think you have a "Boston Extra". See this link for more information: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/186979-ansonia-open-es...
  44. You're very welcome. Please be sure to let us know what you find out. You may end up solving your own mystery! :)
  45. The name of the manufacturer is "Kundo". Here's a link which may be helpful in obtaining more information on and perhaps dating your particular clock: http://www.anniversaryclockidentification.com/...
  46. Okay, then it is a Hall Clock No. 24 then. You're welcome. Thanks for sharing your heirloom with us.
  47. Hello Pokecowboy. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like you may have a Seth Thomas Hall Clock No. 24 from circa 1900. Does it Chime on the quarter hours and strike the hour or does it strike...
  48. Hello Michael. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like you have an Ansonia "Cottage" 30 hour time and alarm Wood Case Mantel Clock. They are reportedly from circa 1880 give or take 10 years or ...
  49. The dial has been replaced. The pendulum is probably a replacement as well. It seems like you know quite a bit about it already. How do you know it is a Gilbert, and that Dennison designed it? ...
  50. Guess not.
