  1. You're very welcome hartatak! I can see why you love your heirloom. It's really a very fine clock with so much attention to detail. The cut, beveled glass panels in the front door tell you right o...
  2. By the way, Welcome to Collectors Weekly! Your Mother apparently has inherited a Walter *Durfee* Pattern No. 5. A very fine, high quality Tall Case Clock. Here's a link to one which was reta...
  3. Do you mean a Walter Durfee Grandfather Clock?
  4. Hi Lisa, it strikes (or chimes) the hour?! Wow, I only see one winding arbor which normally means just the Time Train. Once we have the measurements I'll see if I can narrow down the circa for you...
  5. You still there Lisa?
  6. You're very welcome debbieotoole! Ingraham made some very nice, reliable clocks. :)
  7. Hope that solves your mystery. If so, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your listing. If not, ask away. What else would you like to know about it?
  8. Hello Lisa, welcome to Collectors Weekly. Thanks for sharing your family heirloom with us. You have a Seth Thomas Long Drop Octagon Wall Clock. They were sometimes called "Schoolhouse Clocks". ...
  9. Welcome to Collectors Weekly Debbie. You have an Ingraham Cherub Black Mantel Clock circa 1903 or so. Do an Search on "Ingraham Cherub Clock" and you'll see other examples. They had Boy and Girl C...
  10. You're very welcome Dave!
  11. ooops.... hit the wrong button. Anyway....your Seth Thomas Cymbal 2 is from circa 1928. It could certainly have been manufactured several years before or after that date. If your dad is still wit...
  12. Hello Dave, Welcome to Collectors Weekly! Your Seth Thomas Cymb
  13. You're very welcoe leeezae. Hope you can find a bezel for it. Take careful measurements and set up a search agent on eBay. They come up from time to time.
  14. P.S. note that the posted reference refers to a "White Dial" so your clock is probably still all original. :)
  15. Hello Rose, Welcome to Collectors Weekly! My reference (TDL) has the following to say about the Seth Thomas Tambour 14 - 1922, " Mahogany case. Eight-day movement, hour and half0hour strike. G...
  16. Hi Msumm1969. Thanks for sharing your family heirloom with us. I think that unless someone recognizes the general shape of your clock's case, you're going to have to give us a little more to go on. ...
  17. My guess would be circa 1955 give or take 10 years. Because of the style of the face I would lean towards "later" in that range. Here's another *similar* example I found on the web: http://www.like...
  18. The dial appears to say Seth Thomas right about the "6". Is that right?
  19. Interesting. "Necessity is the mother of invention". Never seen anything like it.
  20. I'll leave the dating to slackjack since he's working with you. I'll just add that the clock's case style is called "Column and Splat". It's a very early Seth Thomas as he started out apprenticing w...
  21. P.S., if that solves your mystery, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your post. I collect Solved Mysteries! :) Thanks.
  22. You have found an Ansonia "Chatham" from circa 1914. Even with the issues, you did well for $25! Does it still run? Probably needs some attention. Antique clocks left languishing on the market usu...
  23. This is (or what remains of) an Ansonia "Calais" circa 1904. Here's another online example: http://www.clockprices.com/ansonia-calais-enameled-mantle-clock.html You can probably find many more. Jus...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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.
  28. The top part of the clock is in the style of a French Boulle Clock.
  29. 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...
  30. 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...
  31. 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...
  32. 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 ...
  33. 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...
  34. 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...
  35. 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...
  36. You're very welcome BHock45. Again, thanks for sharing it. That's a rare Beauty, obviously in good hands for the foreseeable future. :)
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. 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 ...
  40. 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...
  41. I believe that I've seen this model before. I'll check my references when I get a chance. Thanks for sharing your heirloom.
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. 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". ...
  45. 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...
  46. Very, very nice. Thanks for sharing with us!
  47. Here's one that sold at auction about 3 years ago: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/17267784_ingraham-art-deco-novelty-clock
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. 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?
