  1. You're very welcome KramerGma! :)
  2. Hello KramerGma. I think that your heirloom was manufactured by the Ingraham Clock Company (see: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/clocks/ingraham). They offered a line of Mantel Clocks which they c...
  3. You're very welcome eshnick. Glad we could help you.
  4. The 2W was from circa 1961 and had brown Arabic numerals against a light dial. At the time it was one of Seth Thomas' most popular tambour clocks. Its small size (8 /14" high, 16 3/4" wide, 4 3/4" de...
  5. Kerry, thanks. We do what we can, eh? You had some nice calls on upstatenycollector's Lux clocks too. :)
  6. You're very welcome oldjunk. You have an excellent early example of the model. Glad we could help solve your mystery. Thanks again for sharing your "Great" Grandfather's Clock. :)
  7. Looks to be a Herschede Model 320 Colonial from circa 1930. If so, it should measure 87" x 20 1/2" x 14 3/4". If you get the Serial Number off of the back of the movement you can usually determine...
  8. Nye has been around for a long time (1844). http://www.nyelubricants.com/history I use one of their synthetic clock oils and they're still a main source of Clock Oil today.
  9. We would need much better photos to offer any help. Generally speaking, these clocks can be very valuable depending upon their condition of course. There's a similar "Advertising" model listed on t...
  10. HTS, go to http://mb.nawcc.org/. Read over the FAQ page and register. You can then post your clock information in the General Section for help with identification and you can also post in the Clock ...
  11. I've seen those hands on a Mission Clock before. Here's a link to one image: http://thumbs1.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mBJ9zGRQBqAdwF8HLXsC2ng.jpg That doesn't give us much specific information but it...
  12. I found that now. Auctioned in 2010. It's not the same clock as the quarter-sawn oak door grain pattern is different. Does your clock keep accurate time with the current pendulum? Perhaps this wa...
  13. I've never seen anything like it. It's an interesting piece. As I go to Estate Sales, I see basement bars and entertainment lounges. The humorous inscription pretty much says it all. Something l...
  14. Looks like you could set the year as well as manually setting AM/PM in the stamp. Is that true? If so, is the range of years? Thanks for sharing Dave!
  15. It's a New Haven model called the "Fisher Boy" from circa 1889. It looks like it is in excellent condition...at least the Bronze finish does. The statue should have a fishing poll (which he is sort...
  16. Nice clock. Is this a family heirloom or are you a collector? Thanks for sharing.
  17. Hey Scott. The general shape of these clocks can be very similar to the OGs. We just happen to have a Column in our Collection so it kind of jumped out at me is all. Regards.
  18. Although I hate to disagree with Scott, actually this is a Mantel Clock model generally known as a Column Clock for obvious reasons. Possibly a Column & Cornice from circa 1870 although there were m...
  19. P.S., If that solves your mystery please indicate as much in your listing. If not, what more would you like to know?
  20. You have a model called the "Savoy" from circa 1905. It originally listed for $19.50 which was a good sum of money back then. Adjust for inflation that's over $500 in 2014. Yours has a very nicely...
  21. We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight We're gonna rock, gonna rock around the clock tonight....sorry, couldn't refuse. :)
  22. Can't really see much in your one photo. In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case, pend...
  23. P.S. I meant to say broken suspension spring (*not* mainspring). I had mainsprings on the mind.
  24. You're welcome Sally. That's probably best. They can look over the entire movement and make recommendations to you. They may give you the option to simply fix/replace the broken mainspring if every...
  25. Looks like your suspension spring is broken. You'll need a new pendulum rod/suspension spring replacement properly fit to the movement. You can see a labeled photo of a clock movement very similar ...
  26. I did a search on Patent Number 1,719,805 which was issued to L. Hammond and has a date of July 2, 1929. So that would be the earliest year this clock could have been manufactured, it could have bee...
  27. Something else that you might want to consider is going here: http://mb.nawcc.org/forumdisplay.php?22-Clock-Repair and registering. It's free and you'll get a lot of help on Clock Repair there. Eit...
  28. Hi Sally, just replace one of your photos above with the new photo. If you have trouble doing that, just start a new posting. I'll be happy to keep an eye out for it but there are a number of us he...
  29. Also, the alarm will sound until it runs out of power. Folks who want to use the alarm but don't want it running that long only partially wind the alarm spring. This style of clock is generally call...
  30. You're very welcome. To set the alarm rotate the alarm set disk (clockwise only...very important) until the time you want the alarm to go off is directly under the hour hand. So....if you want the...
  31. Do you have any other questions Sally?
  32. If you have any more questions please let us know otherwise, if your mystery has been solved please indicate that in your posting. Thanks for sharing.
  33. This was part of the Seth Thomas "College Series" of wood cased Mantel Clocks. This model was called the College New York" from circa 1900. You have the Strike alarm option which was the most expens...
  34. Hi Sally, Welcome to Collectors Weekly. The problem with your clock may be something as simple as the pendulum rod/suspension spring being off of the support. Often one finds that the suspension...
  35. See this thread for a brief discussion: http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?75373-Gilbert-clock-face
  36. Have whoever serviced it address the issue with the hour strike. Regarding the silvered dial, I'd leave it alone. If you try anything strong or even mildly abrasive you'll ruin the silvering and i...
  37. Just do a search on "United Lighthouse Clock" and you'll see a number of examples. Here's one: http://p2.la-img.com/300/23564/8386746_1_l.jpg It's kind of unique to the clock although you might f...
  38. Hi. Beauty! Thanks for sharing with us. I went to the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors business listings and found some Clock Repair shops. Most are in Mass. One in RI. Ther...
  39. Absolutely beautiful! Nice work. Thanks for sharing with us.
  40. Hi Melissa, Anything written or scribed in the brass by hand would probably have been done by a clock repair person. Sometimes marks are made to help keep the parts to the various gear trains iden...
  41. Hi lissaline. Thanks for posting the additional information. The movement is French and has a Brocot suspension adjustment (to regulate speed) which is commonly found on such movements. It was inv...
  42. It looks like your Mother's clock is an antique Waterbury "Seaton" from circa 1923. See: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-waterbury-clock-co-seaton-416312771 Hope that helps. Tha...
  43. Can't help with the Junghans but it looks like you have a Seth Thomas "Lynton 1W" from circa 1950. Regarding the Junghans please provide the following: Any and *all* information printed, stamped o...
  44. 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...
  45. Perhaps "Overhaul 3/11/50" ?
  46. I haven't run across very many Ingraham figure clocks. I imagine that the base is cast iron and they statue and clock tower are probably bronze finished Spelter. I don't know that for sure but use o...
  47. Your father's clock is a model called the "Duke" from circa 1909. It's described as an 8-day hour and half-hour strike, 4 1/2" porcelain dial. It came in "Bronze" or "Verde" finishes with five gold-...
  48. You're very welcome Dschmid. We can't always identify models and it's nice when we can. Glad we could help. Unless you have other questions, please do indicate that your mystery has been solved in...
  49. Congratulations on your purchase. You have an Ansonia "Servia" from circa 1886. Here's one which sold at auction for $65 at auction but it was in pretty poor condition: http://p2.la-img.com/289/295...
  50. You're very welcome agnes. Again, thank you for sharing these beautiful, heirloom clocks with us at CW.
