    EN Welch Clock MFG.02
    Forestville. Connecticut
    USA
    Is written on the workings. Have had it about six months and love it has a really nice old chime. It does need a service though as it stops periodically and will skip to the next half hour occasionally.
    Any ideas on model and age are welcome,thanks

      Hi kpgreg73,

      You have a very nice Welch "No. 16" from their "Assortment C". It is from around circa 1900. It may have been manufactured and sold earlier than that, but not too much after. It was offered in both Oak and relatively rare Walnut. The Welch Clock Company suffered from production problems following a factory fire. They eventually sold out to the Sessions family and gave rise to the Sessions Clock Company in 1903. If you are interested, Collectors Weekly has an excellent, informative and concise history at this link: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/clocks/sessions

      If this were my clock, I would probably just display as a decorative piece until I could have it properly cleaned, serviced and lubricated. From outward appearance it looks to be all original. I think it is very nice example of Welch's artful touch. They offered a lot for $4.50. (Adjusted for inflation that would be about $126 in 2014.)

      Hope that solves your mystery. If so, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your Post. If not, please ask any other questions you may have.

      Thanks for sharing your clock with us.

      Thank you Bruce99 you have solved enough for me yes I will look at your link, when I bought this earlier in the year I was looking for an Ansonia and this was advertised as one, after it arrived I found out differently, but after a bit of searching on Google I think I got a bargain.

      You're very welcome kpgreg73.
      Here's another link that has a little more information about Welch before it was bought out by Sessions, http://clock-information.com/Welch_Clock_Company.html
      Happy Collecting! :)
