  1. Regarding "Russells" that may be the Logo/Name of Russells LTD out of Liverpool England. They were Watch and Clock Makers in their own right and most certainly could have used French Movements manufa...
  2. That's a French Movement. Judging by what I can see, my guess is that it could be from circa 1875 give or take 15 years. It looks like there is a serial number of the pendulum. If so, it should hav...
  3. Can you show us a well lit photo of the clock's movement?
  4. I've never seen an "art piece" quite like this either. I take it that the movement is electric or battery powered? Can you provide any information or photos of the movement?
  5. You can view examples of Waterbury Willard Numbers 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 here: http://www.antiquewaterburyclocks.com/Waterbury-Model-Names.php
  6. This is the problem when there are multiple posts on the same clock. Dave is right, you have a Waterbury "Willard No. 13" from circa 1927 so it should fit right in with your 1920's home! :) Water...
  7. What you have here Bulldog is a Waterbury "Willard No. 13" from circa 1927. The Tablet is original and the subject is said to be "Good Fellowship". The clock should have an Eagle Finial on top. H...
  8. Bulldog, what I think you have here is a Waterbury "Willard No. 13". Although I haven't found an exact match or example, I did locate a Waterbury "Willard No. 14". See this link: http://www.justans...
  9. Looks like a genuine antique clock to me. The Willards signed the clock's dial face. Although your clock's face has lost some paint, I don't see any trace of a Willard signature. See this example: ...
  10. Refinishing antique finishes can be a controversial topic. One thing is for certain, they really brought out the beauty of the grain pattern with the French Polish technique they used. They may have...
  11. At least one American Clock Manufacturer honored the Willard family by naming Banjo Clock models after the family name. The lyric is from a "Stein Song" by Richard Hovey. As near as I can tell, th...
  12. Hi Hutchy, Okay, that explains a lot. Thanks for taking the time to do so. I'm glad it wasn't converted to a battery-powered quartz clock. I usually hate when that happens! Thanks again for shari...
  13. The serial numbers won't give you answers to the questions you've asked. You'll need to either remove the dial or the movement to see the front surface of the front plate. That's typically where yo...
  14. You should really post a photo which shows the entire clock case. We can't see the entire top of the case for example. You should also provide case measurements. Based on what we can see, it looks ...
  15. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  16. BTW Debbie, welcome to Collectors Weekly and thanks for sharing your heirloom with us!
  17. What are the clock's measurements? I think Dave is right. It looks like an Empire No. 1. Circa 1909 is about right. They probably ranged about 5 years plus or minus that date.
  18. Another nice example. Thanks for sharing!
  19. Congrats on finding this example. I don't see any windup keys on the back and have noticed a sweep seconds hand. Has this clock been converted into a battery powered quartz? It's a nice looking ex...
  20. To me, this looks like it may have fit into a dashboard or control panel of some type. I would suggest that you register as a user at the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors message bo...
  21. I obviously disagree Rose. Those "switches" on the AM/PM indicator dial look like they can be rotated to different settings. I don't think it's an alarm clock. Not in the traditional sense anyway b...
  22. If I had to guess (and I do have to) I would guess that it is some type of mechanical timer mechanism. The 24 hour disk on the back has two tabs. Most likely they "flipped" some type of rotary elect...
  23. Yep, the later comet model has a taller case with a higher glass tablet below the dial so a Comet from 1879 would be right I think. Measurements are important. If your clock is 14 3/4" high, you a...
  24. Waltham Clocks and Watches go way back with Railroads in the U.S. Thanks for sharing and welcome to C.W.!
  25. Interesting. I've seen examples with June 13 and June 1882. There may be two patents which apply to various parts used in the movement. I've seen examples with three. Give us a clear close up and...
  26. If you look closely, you'll see that you're referring to the movement's "Patent" date. The patent on the movement doesn't mean the clock was made in that year. American clock manufacturers often used...

  28. It's not very easy to actually see what you're referring to because of the shaddow/lighting and lack of detail in your one photo which actually shows the clock's case but the contours of the marble ca...
  29. Looks like you may have a model called the "El Tirso" from circa 1907. There's a slight difference in your clocks' dome/top but otherwise it looks like an exact match to the catalog illustration in m...
  30. You have an Ansonia "El Chico" from circa 1901. Search eBay "Sold" listings for Ansonia Marble Mantel Clocks. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_sadis=15&_dmd=1&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_ipg=200&_stpo...
  31. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Your photos are a little dark but I think you have a "Boston Extra". See this link for more information: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/186979-ansonia-open-es...
  32. You're very welcome. Please be sure to let us know what you find out. You may end up solving your own mystery! :)
  33. The name of the manufacturer is "Kundo". Here's a link which may be helpful in obtaining more information on and perhaps dating your particular clock: http://www.anniversaryclockidentification.com/...
  34. Okay, then it is a Hall Clock No. 24 then. You're welcome. Thanks for sharing your heirloom with us.
  35. Hello Pokecowboy. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like you may have a Seth Thomas Hall Clock No. 24 from circa 1900. Does it Chime on the quarter hours and strike the hour or does it strike...
  36. Hello Michael. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like you have an Ansonia "Cottage" 30 hour time and alarm Wood Case Mantel Clock. They are reportedly from circa 1880 give or take 10 years or ...
  37. The dial has been replaced. The pendulum is probably a replacement as well. It seems like you know quite a bit about it already. How do you know it is a Gilbert, and that Dennison designed it? ...
  38. Guess not.
  39. Hey Texas, you still there?
  40. You're welcome Stacy. If that solves your mystery, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your listing and good luck with your liquidations. Regards.
  41. Here's another nice example: http://media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/12295/12691273_1.jpg?v=8CEFB51DA078FB0
  42. There probably are many. You can do an Internet Search for "Bison Clock" or "Buffalo Clock" and see many examples. This is the only antique Ansonia Model (the "Brandon" from circa 1904) that I'v...
  43. Hi Stacy, yes that is typical. If you look at some of the Ansonia clocks which have been posted/shared on this website through the years you'll find other dials similar to yours. Do you have any mor...
  44. I'm sure you'll find many clock repair shops nearby. I have no experience in that area of the country but I would give this one a serious look: http://www.heritagehouseclocks.com/ This one may be ne...
  45. Hello Celiene. I would not try a screwdriver. It won't work and will only risk scratching/damaging the Silver Finish on the Dial (which should be considered delicate). The regulator arbor is like ...
  46. 1. Seth Thomas Tambour 3 from circa 1928 2. You'll probably not find something such as a manual or "guide" for this clock. These links may help: http://ticktocktony.com/Clock-Repair-How-To-Articl...
  47. I don't know what to tell you regarding current market value is concerned since I can't find any other examples which might have sold at auction. As a general rule, I think that mechanical clocks are...
  48. I was wondering how that display works. Thanks Chadakoin. I would say a couple of mysteries have been solved! :)
  49. You're very welcome Britt. Happy we could help. :)
  50. Hello Britt. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. You've picked up a model called the Ansonia "Bombay" from circa 1904. Looks like a pretty nice example! Here's another example which can be found on...
