    I recently purchased this clock at an antique outlet. The face is marked with Waterbury in the upper middle, and Made In The U.S.A. By Waterbury Clock Co. under the 6 and 7. The inner workings are also marked with Waterbury Clock Co. There are four patent dates inside, the earliest is 1910, the latest 1924. it has a dual chime on the hour, and a single on the half hour. There is no other documentation with the clock. I have searched many locations on the web hoping to find a similar clock and get an idea of a manufacture date, but can't seem to find this particular clock. it seems to be in very good condition and runs great. I have wanted a mantel clock for many years and this one is wonderful. Any information about my clock is greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      Not finding this particular case model in my references. Sounds like it's a "bim-bam" Tambour (aka Napolean Hat, Camel, Humpback) mantel clock. My guess is that it is from circa 1930 give or take 5 years, but I'm not sure. Nice, clean clock. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Bruce99. I am unable to find any information either. Leave it to me to find an odd ball. I will keep on with the hunt.

      cue606 - That is actually the first site I looked at. I went through every model and did not see this particular one. Thanks

      No problem, it's worth a shot. The face looks like aluminum, which seems odd, is it?

      I believe it is aluminum
