    I don't know anything about this clock, it has no label or markings that I know of. Please help me learn more about it if you can tell from the pictures.

      Except for the absence of a bell, the movement looks like one from a Chancey Jerome "Sessions" clock, ca. 1912, on this page: http://wkinsler.com/clocks/index.html#Chauncey_Jerome

      Dating the movement might give you a different avenue to explore..

      Thx random guy, that got me lookin. It might be an Ingraham? The movement looked close to one on your link. Then I searched for an Ingraham with lions and found a "Ingraham Griffin Flanked" clock. The griffins are the same as my clock. So maybe? Wish it had a mark or label that I could find.

      I sure wish I had more to say. I think you might be at the point where you need might want to look for a nearby collector. I doubt if the movements had any factory markings that were casually visible from the outside. Maybe a USB "spy" camera and a good light to peek inside the cavity and seeing the front of movement will reveal some markings.

      I'd sure like to know more. I have severe Johnny Five Syndrome. I _need_ to know ;-)
