Two clocks are crystal regulator clocks, still work. But the black clock in the back, weight a ton, I have no idea what it is.

Unsolved Mystery

    Crystal Regulator on the right looks like an Ansonia "Baronet" ca 1904.

    Thanks! Yes, that one seems to be a Ansonia Baronet, the other one looks close to the Ansonia "Prism". Hard to figure out that black "Rock" clock.

    I think that the other Crystal Regulator is a "Gilbert", but I don't have any references on Gilbert so I can't identify the model. I think it may be the Gilbert "Valerie".

    for more close up views of a Gilbert "Valerie".

    You're right, it looks very much like an Ansonia Prism with the exception of the winding arbor locations and it may be a little shorter.

    ah ha, seems like another perfect match. Now I could sound "educated" when talking about our clockS. There're another half dozen more of them in the house. Thanks for the pictures!
