    Here's a lovely antique Sessions Clock Co. "Gingerbread" clock. I'm guessing it's from about 1903-1910s. I had wanted it for a while, as it was working and has an alarm feature in addition to the chime, but when it came up for auction after the antique store closed down, their listing reported that it no longer works. But, I got it very cheap, and it's just for decor anyway. It could use a new dial.

      Thank you, Windwalker. Though I didn't dismantle it, I removed the face and cleaned out the mechanism a bit. I think gunk is why it stopped, as it will run for several minutes now.

      I found you clock model in one of my references. Sessions sold "assortments" to dealers. An assortment of these types of wood case clocks had similar but distinct designs. Your clocks is referred to a "Assortment 'F 32'" reportedly from circa 1906 so your estimate is right on the nose. Personally, I would overhaul/clean the two movements, gently clean and wax the case (Lemon Oil and Bee's Wax is a good choice for this type of wood work) and I'd leave the dial as is. It's original, legible and undamaged. The aged color of the dial actually compliments the color of Walnut case (Was offered in Oak or Walnut). If you just want it as a genuine antique for decorative purposes, I'd strongly suggest leaving the original dial as found. Just my opinion.

      The clock originally listed for $3.34 The Gong Strike was an extra 40 cents as with the Alarm, so your example would have listed for $4.14 in 1906. A very competitive price (at the time) of about $110 in 2018 dollars.

      Nice examples in good working order are currently selling on eBay for somewhere around that price so these clocks still retain their original value if they've been well cared for.

      Nice pick. Thanks for sharing.
