  1. Merry Christmas Nathan! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Thank you Kydur and SJR for stopping by and for the loves. Much appreciated!
  3. Merry Christmas to you too Sean. Hoping that your 2014 & 2015 end & begin with the best of times! See you around the CW.
  4. Niiiice! Thanks for sharing another sweet pick Sean. :)
  5. Yeah, just give me the date of manufacture! Maybe I'll call it mine, maybe not... :)
  6. What SEAN68 said! Very nice example. My guess is that it might be a century old but I doubt that it is much older than that. The "R/A" on the pendulum bob is fairly common. It means "Slower" and ...
  7. I certainly wasn't accusing you of molesting antiques for art projects Kydur. There are different "definitions" of antique clocks but generally speaking something a century old qualifies. In the mar...
  8. Love the video. Those are some "Fast" birds! Thanks for sharing!
  9. Just saying....
  10. Cuckoos are not my cup of tea but one has to appreciate a piece for what it is. Glad you didn't tear it apart for parts. I like to repair and restore antique clocks so Steampunk "art" made from anti...
  11. You're very welcome! Glad I could help. :)
  12. Yes, that's pretty commonly seen especially in clocks which have been serviced. The old & soft Pine wood cases don't stand up well to repeated removal and replacement of the wood screws...especially ...
  13. Happy Holidays to you and yours Kerry!
  14. Hi Kydur. You're very welcome. With those dimensions I think you have the model called the "Essex". It came in several different designs. Your design matches my circa 1921 illustration. "Beehiv...
  15. Hi Kydur. The closest match I see in my Reference Book (Tran Duy Ly's "Waterbury Clocks & Watches" copyright 2001 page 397) measures 25 7/8" tall. The width is not given. The tablet painting in my...
  16. The crossed arrows is the logo of H.A.C. which later merged with Jungans in 1926. It's a nice looking Art Deco style case. I've never seen one before. Sorry I don't have more information for you. ...
  17. That is a nice Seth Thomas wood case Mantel Clock. The case style is generally referred to as "Gothic Arch" as opposed to a "Sharp Gothic" (or "Steeple") case. I think your model is called the "Stra...
  18. Often a manufacturer would offer these cases with either a 30-hour or 8-day movement until the 30-hour movements fell completely out of production. You are right though. The 30-hour movements are ge...
  19. I agree with shawnicus, that looks to be an 8-day Time and Strike Movement. The Pendulum Bob looks like a Waterbury but it may not be original to the clock. Waterbury also sold movements to other ...
  20. You have a very nice Time & Strike Bracket Clock. I don't have any H.A.C. references but judging from the style my guess would be circa 1915 give or take a decade. Again, that's just a guess on my p...
  21. P.S., at $45 for a nice example in working condition, I think you got a good deal. These types of clocks generally sell at auction for somewhere around $75-$100. Some much more, some less...dependin...
  22. You have an American Black Mantel Clock. It is a Sessions model called the "Carlotta" from circa 1908. It originally listed for $9.15, roughly $240 in 2014 so although it was relatively cheap compar...
  23. It's an "O.G." Circa is probably more along the lines of 1880 give or take a decade. Thanks for sharing.
  24. This is a model called the Ansonia "Baltic". It is from circa 1886 and could have been manufactured several years before or after that date. The case is made from Black Walnut. Prices are down o...
  25. Hi, thanks for sharing your family heirloom. What information are you seeking to solve your "mystery"?
  26. 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...
  27. 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...
  28. Nice example Nathan. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  29. Thank you for stopping by and for the loves jimy777 and ticktocktime100!
  30. 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...
  31. 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...
  32. 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...
  33. 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.
  34. 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...
  35. 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...
  36. 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?
  37. 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"...
  38. 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 ...
  39. 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...
  40. 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. ...
  41. 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...
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. 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...
  45. That looks "modern" to me in 2014.
  46. 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...
  47. Thank you freiheit for stopping by and showing the love. Much appreciated!
  48. Thanks for the loves freiheit and CindB. Thank you also for the kind comments CindB. I'm glad that you enjoyed the video.
  49. 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...
  50. 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...
