  1. Nice. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Take a clean wad of cotton, dampen it with clean water and use it to gently apply a paste of Cream of Tartar. If done with care, this should help to clean and brighten the silvering without damaging...
  3. Still there?
  4. P.S., glad you decided to keep the clock in its original condition. If an original movement is missing or destroyed, a quartz insert may be a good option, but it would be a last resort. Usually muc...
  5. Hello Sev64rey, Welcome to CW. I looks like you may have one of Sessions' Miniature Tambour models called the "Dart" from circa 1923. The Dart measures on 9 1/2" Long by 4 1/4 inches High. It's ...
  6. Yes. See: http://www.clockprices.com/seth-thomas-metal-no-2-oak-mantle-clock.html
  7. Gilbert has the number 1807 on a number of styles or models of their clocks. If you do an internet search on Gilbert 1807 you'll easily find a few examples (not all of them tambours). This is a tam...
  8. Cindy is exactly right. Seth Thomas called this their "Sharp Gothic". It's from circa 1879. It was offered with a 30-hour, as well as an 8-day movement. Seth Thomas also offered an alarm option. ...
  9. Merry Christmas and thanks for sharing your lovely clock with us.
  10. Were you able to adjust the clock for more accuracy Don? Did you have any more questions?
  11. Could be a Sunflower, or the Sun. Nice! Thanks for sharing. :)
  12. Hello Don, Your heirloom belongs to a style of clocks generally called "Tambours". This style was very popular in the 1920's and 30's. I think your clock may be from circa 1923 based upon similar...
  13. Hello familyresearcher. Welcome to Collectorsweekly. I can help you with this. Your heirloom Seth Thomas is from their "Metal Series". Yours is called "Metals No. 1". It was made in Oak. My refe...
  14. Nice SpiritBear. Thanks for sharing it with us. I've been told that an acceptable error rate for a mass produced mechanical clock is around 3 minutes plus or minus in 1 week (for an 8-day movement)....
  15. Can you post more photos of the mechanism you're referring to? If you don't mind my asking, what does your Dad remember about it?
  16. You still there Timndiane? If so, any other questions?
  17. Your clock is listed simply as an O.G. or O.O.G. From circa 1881. They came in Mahogany or Zebra. Not familiar with the painting on the Tablet. That may have been done by one of the clock's own...
  18. Harold Bain is usually spot on. He does qualify his answer with definitely "Asian". I think Banyan may be a Chinese Company. At least it is now. Here's my source: https://www.wayfair.com/Banyan-...
  19. Hi, see this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogee I'll see if I can find your particular model in one of my references.
  20. It's an "Ogee" Wood cased mantel clock. What are the case measurements?
  21. I'm a few years older than you. I remember the brand but never tried it. Found this commercial for it on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrScZdC1yn0 A different era for sure. Nice pick....
  22. Any marks/labels/stamps/names on the clock case, dial or movement?
  23. Beautiful, classy timepiece Sean. Thanks for sharing!
  24. Congratulations and *very* nice job of restoring the clock to its original condition! :)
  25. Wonderful piece Russ! Thanks for sharing it.
  26. No photo, but here is a listing I found on the Internet: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ansonia-porcelain-snipe-clock-case
  27. It is in a class known as "Novelty Clocks". I didn't find your particular model in any of my references but the dial/movement was used in a lot of models I came across. It's a nice clock. Thanks for...
  28. Corphelp, you still there? Any questions?
  29. From what I can see, it looks like your daughter has a model called the Seth Thomas "Ideal" from circa 1906. Here is a similar example. It doesn't have the medallion in the front, but other than tha...
  30. Hi. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Nice clock. Do you mind if I ask, is this an heirloom, do you collect or deal in antiques? I think I've seen this model before. I'll have to research it and wi...
  31. Nice piece. It's pretty amazing what type of objects/art work can be made into a clock with the fairly accurate and relatively inexpensive battery powered quartz movements. "Time Marches On". Tha...
  32. Good point..."yet". I'm sure it will find a good home with you if you decide to pick it up. Chimers can be high maintenance when the time comes, but I know you take very good care of your collection...
  33. Hey Shawnicus. This looks like a contemporary Ansonia Clock. The Company was re-opened in 1969 under a totally different business entity. In any case, you have a nice looking clock to consider th...
  34. Hi Scott, That's very kind. Thank you. It's a great site. There's so much more to it than just clocks but I'm happy to be able to contribute if and where I can. See you around my friend. B...
  35. Everything goes better with Coke! This is a cute Anniversary Clock. Thanks for sharing with us.
  36. That's a "Tambour" style case which his part of your desk. I've never seen anything quite like it. I've seen desk clocks before but this takes that whole thing to another level! :) Looking forward...
  37. You're very welcome Betty. Glad we could help. Hope to see you around. :)
  38. Looks great! Love the grain and finish. Thanks for sharing with us.
  39. You're very welcome Scott. Thanks for sharing!
  40. Hello again Betty. I'm still unable to find another example online. That would suggest that it is not a common model although I can't say with any certainty that it is rare. It certainly is distinc...
  41. Hi Betty. Without a manufacturer's name to go on, it becomes more difficult to find the model. It becomes a matter of elimination. However, I lucked up and found your model. You have an "Elma" ...
  42. The hands should come off if there is some type of nut or taper pin. I think that the metal cylinder that the nails go through and into the case certainly is held in place by the nails. There are ...
  43. Never seen anything quite like this one before Shawnicus. I only spot one pivot through the back plate. Would be interesting to see the movement from the front and sides. Not sure that would help a...
  44. Hello Scott, It looks like you have a model called the "Englewood" manufactured by the Waterbury Clock Company. It's from circa 1917. Here's another example on the web: http://www.worthpoint.com...
  45. You're very welcome Laurie. I'm glad we could help. :)
  46. Not sure from your photos as they are dark with a lot of flash glare but it looks like you may have an Ansonia "Dover" from circa 1904. Check for yourself by comparing this example: http://www.antiqu...
  47. You're very welcome Nea. I'm glad we were able to help you.
  48. Hello Nea. It looks like you have an Ansonia "Capri" from circa 1904. Here is another example I found online: https://www.antiqueclockspriceguide.com/pages/clock0254.php and some more: http://mb.na...
  49. Nice save. Thanks for sharing!
  50. Hello again Bob. Your Seth Thomas is a bit older. It is a Cottage Clock named the Octagon Top "C" from circa 1865-1880. Your label states "Thomaston Connecticut". The earliest examples of Octagon ...
