  1. I just spend my time trying help folks interested in their family heirloom or in furthering their collections. If you're looking for information so you can market this clock, items for sale are not s...
  2. Hello McMac, That would confirm that you have an original (or certainly appropriate) movement in this clock case. From your information the clock has a Seth Thomas movement "No. 44 V". That is de...
  3. Nice example Nathan. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  4. Thank you for stopping by and for the loves jimy777 and ticktocktime100!
  5. Thanks for the additional photos and measurements. I think I've narrowed it down. I think you have a Seth Thomas model called the "Chatham" from circa 1914 give or take about 10 years. Yours looks l...
  6. You're welcome. While a good servicing can help restore value lost to poor running condition, it will probably not "pay for itself". You'll pay the repair person to get it running for your own en...
  7. On the other hand, it might be a Gilbert....so.... In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, ca...
  8. Clock *might* be a Sessions. Can't really tell with the one photo you've uploaded. There are a lot of Coca-Cola Collectors here. Perhaps one or more of them will weigh in.
  9. In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case, pendulum and key. This includes names, trademar...

  11. You're welcome. Based on what you've told us I think it's safe to assume the clock was manufactured in 1904. Do you have any other questions?
  12. PS, it could have been manufactured and sold in 1904, or that may have been a service date. Was the date printed or written or what? Hope that solves your mystery. If so, please indicate "Solved"...
  13. You have a Gilbert Porcelain Model No. 427 in Cobalt Blue from circa 1900 (approximate date of manufacture). They originally listed from around $9.00. Most recently appraised by TDL at $450 for an ...
  14. Also, the strike hammer looks as though it needs to be carefully adjusted so that it will strike the gong at the appropriate times. If you want to run the clock, my advice would be to get it properly...
  15. The case style is called Gothic Arch. The movement has an Open or "Brocot" Escapement...named after the French Horologist. Your movement could probably benefit from a good cleaning and servicing. ...
  16. I found a very similar clock on the Antique Clocks Identification and Price Guide website. https://www.antiqueclockspriceguide.com/clockdetails.php?clockid=40197 Perhaps that is the one you were ref...
  17. Any local clock shop and provide you with a key that fits. If you measure the distance between the opposing sides of the winding arbors (the square end upon which the winding key fits) you can determ...
  18. I can help you with this. You have a Welch Wood Cased "Mantel Clock". The model came from their Assortment A and is referred to the No. 1 from circa 1900. They were marketed this way for shipment...
  19. Well, I can read the name either and certainly don't recognize it. I've never run across one of these before. I could be wrong but it looks to me like a "faux" 400 day Anniversary Clock. The...
  20. That looks "modern" to me in 2014.
  21. Hi, your link should be edited so that it doesn't have an "a" at the beginning. All I know is that "Anniversary" (or 400-day) clocks generally need to be re-wound once per year, hence the name. Clo...
  22. Thank you freiheit for stopping by and showing the love. Much appreciated!
  23. Thanks for the loves freiheit and CindB. Thank you also for the kind comments CindB. I'm glad that you enjoyed the video.
  24. In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case, pendulum and key. This includes names, trademar...
  25. You're welcome anthony. Make sure it's on a level surface and in beat. See this reference by a guy who calls himself "Tick-Toc-Tony": http://ticktocktony.com/Clock-Repair-How-To-Articles/how-to-adj...
  26. You're very welcome Linda. Please mark your listing as "Mystery Solved". Thanks.
  27. The premium 15-day round R. Kaiser Time & Strike Movements were only found in some of Seth Thomas' more expensive mantel clocks. The "45481" is this movement's serial number. Although these metal ca...
  28. You have a "Tambour" style Mantel Clock. From what I can see it looks like a Sessions model they called the "Surprise" from circa 1925. If so it should measure 19" long by 9 1/2" tall. Mahogany Fi...
  29. Hi, This is a more contemporary example of a Seth Thomas Westminster Chiming "Tambor" Mantel Clock. I believe the stamp indicates that it was manufactured in October of 1966 (6610) but I might be w...
  30. P.S. It appears as though your example may have been refinished at some point in the past. Hard to tell for sure without seeing an original example but bronze and silver were the two original finis...
  31. Forty-Three dollars in 1889 would have been the equivalent of $1,121 in 2014. Tran Duy Ly's "Book Value" for a pristine, original example in good running order was $950 in 2000. Even in relatively ...
  32. Great Pics...Excellent post...Neat design...learned a lot! Thanks for sharing Russ.
  33. Can only see general shapes in your photos. Can you post clearer pics without the glare? Please provide the following to help us id your clock: Any and all information printed, stamped or label...
  34. Hi Linda, You have a New Haven "Lulli" from circa 1889. The Bronze finished clock originally listed for $41. It also came in a Silver Finish which listed for $43. A LOT of money in those days....
  35. We need to see more of the case. Well lit photos would also be a big help.
  36. Great looking collection Russ! Thanks for sharing with us.
  37. You're very welcome. I'm glad they confirmed all of the information I gave you over on the NAWCC website. If you want them to provide value information you'll need to subscribe to the paid areas. ...
  38. Okay, that's why I said "circa". The information that I provided comes from a reprint of a 1913 catalog. The clock could have been available several years before or after that date. Any other que...
  39. Just confirming what has already been stated, you have a Seth Thomas & Sons Mantel Clock case. The model was marketed as their "No. 8015" from circa 1872. While Seth Thomas & Sons did manufacture c...
  40. Neat! Thanks for sharing.
  41. Hi, Your heirloom New Haven clock is called the "Knight" firce circa 1913. Originally listed for $32 back then. Equivalent to about $770 in 2014. One sold for $650 (plus buyer's premium) at auct...
  42. One other thing, your clock has an "Adamantine" finish so don't use anything abrasive on it. Once you have it cleaned, you may want to apply a good quality car wax to help bring out the gloss and co...
  43. The Elba was offered in the Seth Thomas Catalogs but they often worked with businesses to offer promotional clocks. Personally, I would just use non-abrasive Goop hand cleaner on the case (metal in...
  44. You're probably right about the case. What are its measurements? That doesn't look like any Seth Thomas movement I've ever seen...not that I've seen them all. Is there a "ST" stamp or logo on it a...
  45. This model is called the Elba from circa 1896. The top metal ornament is broken and partially missing. Perhaps it was altered (smoothed out) to look as though it was an original design. Here's an e...
  46. Is there anything stamped in the brass plate behind the cup bell?
  47. Looks like a French marble clock. There *might* be more information stamped on the movement's rear plate which is hidden behind the cup bell. It's a simple matter to remove the bell and find out.
  48. "Sweet"! ;)
  49. Thirteen grandchildren Kerry? Got quite a collection of them too, eh? :)
  50. Well "T.K." you really can work some magic on things which had seen better days. You work so fast I have to wonder if you're using some magic pixie dust or something. :)
