  1. I particularly like the hands! Too bad the brake doesn't squeal at the top of the hour to signal that it's "time" for brake service. :) That would probably get a little annoying pretty quick I thi...
  2. You're welcome Sockets. I'm glad that we could help a little with your research. These Long Drop Octagon Wall Clocks kept pretty good time. The "Time Only" Timepieces, like yours, were the most acc...
  3. Excellent write up and photos! The clock appears to be a Gilbert Clock model "Consort" from circa 1910. See: http://clockinfo.com/posts/6695 and compare yours. It sounds like the movement migh...
  4. Can't see much detail in your photos. What is printed on the dial? Are there any stamps or markings on the movement plates? Looks British or German to me based on what little I can make out.
  5. The top part of the clock is in the style of a French Boulle Clock.
  6. Almost looks like a spring-driven mantel clock which was converted into a tall case weight-driven clock. I've never seen anything like it. If collectors here can't help, try posting it on the NAWCC...
  7. Described as a "MINIATURE CHINOISERIE BRONZE" here is another another example of this model in red: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/44310961_miniature-chinoiserie-bronze-kienzle-germany It sol...
  8. Those are Rhinestones. Circa 1960 +/- 10 years? See: https://www.etsy.com/no-en/listing/221914404/vintage-60s-1960s-elgin-crystal http://retrorenovation.com/2007/12/12/vintage-50s-elgin-rhinestone...
  9. You have a lot more documentation that most antique/vintage clocks come with. Elgin has a history of making high quality watches and clocks. Is there any date information on the info sheet. What ...
  10. Hi again alynne, I was able to find this much: Peerless was a trademark used by Matthias Bäuerle GmbH of St. Georgen, Germany. As the name suggests, "Peerless" was only used on their highest g...
  11. It occurred to me that you have more of a watch than a clock here. The "Bucherer" Company started off as a very high-end Jewelry Store in partnership with the founder of Rolex Brand Watches. Here's...
  12. Hi Alynne. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. I'm not that familiar with Peerless clocks at all. My impression is that they made some nice quality clocks. Your heirloom looks very nice. An eBay sear...
  13. You're very welcome BHock45. Again, thanks for sharing it. That's a rare Beauty, obviously in good hands for the foreseeable future. :)
  14. You're very welcome rludlow... Yes, I noticed the quality wood joints too. It kind of reminds me of the "Mission Arts & Crafts " Style. If true and original, that could be possibly a little ear...
  15. The "Omaha" link many of these types of clocks were offered with several different movement options. The Alarm feature was a little extra. Here's an example with the Alarm option: https://www.livea...
  16. You have one of the older "Chicago" models from Seth Thomas' City Clock Colllection. This clock probably dates from sometime around the 1880's so it was probably passed down to them or they acquired ...
  17. I've never seen a clock quite like this one so I can't help you as far as what was originally used. You may have to experiment by hanging some type of container and adding weight until the movement...
  18. I believe that I've seen this model before. I'll check my references when I get a chance. Thanks for sharing your heirloom.
  19. Hi JohnK860 You have a Seth Thomas mantel clock from their City Series. This is their "Omaha", Circa 1880s. There are many other examples online, here's one: http://www.prices4antiques.com/Shelf-C...
  20. Correction, I mentioned "Pendulum Rod" several times and just made things a little confusing I think. These Mercury Pendulums hang on Suspension Springs. The two basic configurations for mantel clo...
  21. Hey TF, I've seen two styles of pendulums with these Porcelain Ansonia #? Crystal Regulators. The central rod measures around 4 7/8" and is hung on the pendulum rod (which is hooked) with an "eye". ...
  22. Hey Rhythm, from what I can see, the movement looks like one illustrated in Ly's reference. The Model "O" from circa 1934. That and the Art Deco theme leads me to guess that the model was on the mar...
  23. Very, very nice. Thanks for sharing with us!
  24. Here's one that sold at auction about 3 years ago: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/17267784_ingraham-art-deco-novelty-clock
  25. Unfortunately I'm not finding it in any of my references Rhythm. Looks like it might be some type of promotional Bank issue? Does that read "Bankers Development Corp. N.Y.C. on the back? Is that...
  26. These are not common clocks so I don't know where you might find a replacement finial for one. You might try looking through antique malls/shops. You may find something similar that could be made to...
  27. Hello Rhythm, welcome to Collectors Weekly. Could you tell us a little more about this clock? Is it a family heirloom? Are you a collector?
  28. Hey TurdFerguson, you still here? :)
  29. You're very welcome billysastard. I'm happy that we were able to help. It looks like it may need a little work but basically a nice, intact antique clock. Must be a good friend you have there! :)
  30. Hi, Looks like you have an Ansonia "Capri" from circa 1904. Your example could have been manufactured several years before or after that date. Here is a link to another example: https://www.antique...
  31. From what I can see in your photos, I'm certain you have a clock designed by noted authority Tran Duy Ly as the Welch "Unknown No. 36" circa 1890. It is cataloged as clock number 1569 on page 494 of ...
  32. We'll need to at least see the entire case. Can you post one? Is the top missing?
  33. What makes you think that this is a clock key?
  34. Looks genuine to me. These Ansonia Crystal Regulators 1 through 8 do have Royal Bonn porcelain, but not the "typical" Royal Bonn Markings. The imprint and markings on the bottom do attest to this. ...
  35. This is a very interesting modern clock. Will you restore the missing feet or remove the single remaining one? Thanks for sharing. Great posting as usual.
  36. Thank you Scott. I wasn't sure about the wood so thanks for verifying the type to Roy. It's a very nice looking model and example. :)
  37. Look at this search of recent eBay Sold listings to get some idea of current market value for clocks similar to yours: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=sessions%20regulator%20h%...
  38. Here's an eBay Search of recent "Sold" listings for Sessions Black Mantel Clocks. Sorted in descending price order: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_nkw=ses...
  39. That may have been the date it was purchased or even the date of an early servicing. You can find a lot more information on Sessions here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/clocks/sessions Please let ...
  40. Hi. Sounds like a neat clock. Could you post a few more photos of the dial and case? Thanks!
  41. You're very welcome Roy2016. Happy we were able to help. I think you're right about the date. I believe these clocks are circa 1900 or so. It's in good hands so no doubt it will get a good start o...
  42. Where are you located Roy2016? Ansonia sold this model as the "King" (as Dizzydave already has pointed out), but they also sold it as the "Austral" which was exported to Australia. It came in Oak a...
  43. You're very welcome Jposer
  44. Nice save! I think that this is a "Sucile" circa 1904. Your clock may have been made a few years before or after that date. The movement is the Seth Thomas "No. 89" 8-day Time & Strike mechanism. ...
  45. Hello, Welcome to Collectors Weekly! This doesn't appear to be a very common model. I think Vintage_Joe is right. Although I don't have a Home Chime 20 listed in my references, There is a Ho...
  46. You're very welcome Jchill77. You have a very nice, well cared for example there. Your family obviously took good care of it. Thanks for sharing.
  47. It's a model called the "Topaz" made of Oak from circa 1896. Do a web search on "Ingraham Topaz" and you'll find more examples. Hope that solves your mystery, if so please indicate "Mystery Solved" ...
  48. You have what Ansonia called their "Boston Extra" model from circa 1904. See: https://www.google.com/search?q=ansonia+boston+extra&rlz=1CAACAG_enUS624US624&espv=2&biw=1533&bih=732&source=lnms&tbm=is...
  49. You're very welcome gmb1891. Congratulations on acquiring your antique clock. Hopefully it will stand witness to many joyful moments for you, your family and friends as it no doubt has during the ...
  50. The link that Scott provided tells us that the Junghans Logo stamped into your clock's plate first appeared in 1890, so that would be the earliest your clock could have been made. From what I can see...
