  1. It appears that your heirloom is an incomplete Ansonia "Rosalind" from circa 1904. See this image for a complete example: http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Model-0853.php Hope that help...
  2. Very neat. Never seen anything quite like it before! :)
  3. Hello Rbbhoneycutt. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Nice pick. Thanks for sharing your Gilbert Wall Clock with us. You may try this Clock Supply House for your glass: http://timesavers.com/i-8947...
  4. Hello ollehybrood. Welcome to Collectors Weekly! It looks like you have a model that Waterbury called the "Fairfield" from circa 1886. Hope that helps solve your mystery. If so, please indicate ...
  5. Nice clock. Thanks for sharing it! Here's an excellent article on the history of "Pratt" clocks. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/daniel-pratt-neglected-clockmaker-of-reading-massachuset...
  6. Hey Shawnicus. There's a faded stamp of the model name on the Directions Card attached to the inside of the back door. It's a Preston 1W which indicates it is a mechanical or a spring driven "W"ou...
  7. You're very welcome Dallibone! :)
  8. Here's an excellent reference on Ansonia Clocks: http://www.arlingtonbooks.com/ansonia.html
  9. Well, you know it's a Cuckoo Clock. They come in a super wide variety of shapes, sizes and complications/features. I don't collect these types of clocks but there are some folks here who do. Hopef...
  10. Just to add to some of the excellent info antiquerose has already provided, I would tend to categorize this type of clock as a "Boudoir", "Dresser" or possibly a "Novelty" clock. Here are some addi...
  11. Is this a clock or a pocket watch?

  13. Here are links to other examples of this model: http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Model-0437.php http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Model-0438.php http://www.antiqueansoniacloc...
  14. This is an American manufactured Ansonia porcelain clock. The model names is the "La Cannes" and it is from circa 1904. Royal Bonn porcelain is considered to be some of the best porcelain used by An...
  15. I don't know when it was first offered, but this model is called the "Barrister" and can still be purchased new anywhere from about $450 to $700. I think yours may have been an earlier model since it...
  16. The model called "Adrian" was manufactured by the Ingraham Clock Company as blunderbuss2 points out above. It was offered in circa 1915 and originally listed for $8.90. I think it's well designed ...
  17. Anthony, I have a possible correction for you...this may be a model called the "Gallery" and not the "Arcade" as I had thought before. See these links: http://antiqueseththomasclocks.com/Seth-Th...
  18. No, I don't but this reference might help: http://www.clockworks.com/clock-parts/clock-keys.html You might also want to consider having the clock properly serviced if you intend to run it. These ty...
  19. That's an insignificant option. One often finds a variety of dial options on a model. Indeed, American Clock Manufacturers often offered a wide range of dial "upgrades" or just slight variations to ...
  20. Hello Anthony. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like your friend has given you a Seth Thomas "ArcadeNo. 1" from about circa 1928. In original condition and in good working order they can be v...
  21. 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.
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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 ...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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!
  28. 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...
  29. You're very welcome BobbyK! :)
  30. 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...
  31. 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...
  32. 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...
  33. Nice pick. Looks great! Thanks for sharing.
  34. 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...
  35. 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...
  36. Can you show us a well lit photo of the clock's movement?
  37. 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?
  38. You can view examples of Waterbury Willard Numbers 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 here: http://www.antiquewaterburyclocks.com/Waterbury-Model-Names.php
  39. 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...
  40. 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...
  41. 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...
  42. 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: ...
  43. 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...
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 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...
  47. 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 ...
  48. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  49. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  50. 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.
