    I have had this sitting around for along time and decided to take the movement out to see if it needs work or not, but it has a very weird setup for the movement, the movement is screwed onto a real thick piece of wood and then you screw the wood to the metal back of the clock, i dont know if someone mickey moused this or not, i am thinking that maybe it isn't even a new haven like the dial says it is, there are no marks on the movement. The clock is 15" wide x 14 1/2" high and is a all metal case.

    Unsolved Mystery

    Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

      I see that this clock was listed on eBay/Canada at some point in recent history. Were you the Buyer or Seller?
      It is a New Haven model called their "Cumberland". It's made from enameled iron, not slate.

      Can't say one way or the other regarding the movement. I don't think it is a cheap knock off. It has Geneva Stops.

      The mounting board's wood looks pretty old so if someone did "mickey mouse" the movement into the case, it wasn't recent and it appears to have been well done.

      I can't really see much detail on the clock from your screen print. If the movement's winding and regulation arbors fit the New Haven Dial well, I'd cautiously give the clock benefit of the doubt.

      I haven't come across one of New Havens' simulated Marble (Enameled Iron) Cased clocks before.

      Hope that helps a little.

      New Haven usually stamped one of the movement plates with their logo/name. Sometimes the stamp appeared on the inside surface of the plate, probably by accident. I'd look over the movement thoroughly to find any stamps or marks if you haven't done so already. Good luck.

      thank you for the information, i bought this through craigslist about 4 years ago for $25.00. i will look on the inside plates and see if i can find a stamp. the movement fits very well into the dial.

      It's a nice looking clock. The Seller must have listed on eBay as well since that's where I found an old listing for it in Google Images. You'd have a real tough time beating that price! You can easily pay twice that for a Seth Thomas Movement for "parts or repair". Please let us know what you find, and thanks for sharing.

      took the movement out and checked it real close for a stamp mark but didn't find one any where.

      Okay. I wouldn't worry about it. As I mentioned originally, if someone did install a movement after the clock was manufactured they did an excellent job of it. If it were mine I'd just enjoy it as it is for what it is. I know that doesn't definitively solve your mystery, but at least you know the case model name and until you can prove otherwise, I would regard the movement as appropriate to the case. Maybe another Cumberland will surface on the Internet to compare yours to. Thanks again for sharing it.
