    This clock is beautiful. It still keeps the correct time and has a wonderful gong on the half and full hour. I inherited it 16 years ago when my grandfather past. I have no idea when it was made. I only know he got it during WWII.

      It is not an exact match, but your clock is very similar to a Sessions Clock called the "Brewster". I see three relatively minor differences, otherwise the models look the same. The Brewster is from circa 1923 so I would assume that your grandfather's clock was too. Thanks for sharing.

      Your right. My amateur eyes only saw 2. What was the 3rd? Thanks

      In my catalog illustration, the feet were different, the side ornaments were not lion heads and there was no cast 'ribbon' below the dial. I've found another example online which has feet similar to your clock but the dial is different so it would also have three cosmetic differences.
      Here's the URL:

      That one appears to be covered with smoke film too.

      Just so long as the dial is original, it's not that significant that slightly different models or even examples of the same model have different "versions" of the dial.

      Here's another one similar to your clock but it doesn't have the cast ribbon decoration and it is painted brown (which may or may not be a factory finish):

      Here's another similar example:

      Now here's one with the medallion (or cast ribbon) like yours, but it too is brown, has a plain dial and the smaller feet like the example I found in one of my references:

      So we seem to have a basic model with variations in the side ornaments, the presence or absence of a cast ribbon decoration below the dial, two different versions of feet and some variation on the dial face.

      I think it's most likely that this clock was made in the early 1920s as per my reference materials.

      Thanks for all the help you you've given. Looking forward to looking at all of them.

      They are all very nice. I imagine they are worth the about the same. Which is what I'm trying to find out.
