    All I know is it's a J.E. Caldwell & Co. clock. I was given it from my grandmother. I think it's beautiful! It works, although I usually don't have it running. If anyone knows anything at all about this clock please let me know.
    Thanks!

      I love these style clocks!

      It is a beehive mantle clock. This style clock was very popular in the first quarter of the 20th century.

      I wasn't familiar with Caldwell, so Idid a quick search-- they are a RETAILER in Philadelphia:

      http://www.jckonline.com/article/287041-Historic_J_E_Caldwell_Philadelphia_store_to_close.php

      You may find the manufacturer marks on the inside of the case.

      Sorry for the poor link-- I yield to the immense knowledge of phildaveal....

      Here is a link to phildaveal's wiki paste (unattributed, but I won't question your knowledge) on F.E. Caldwell of NYC:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_F._Caldwell_%26_Co.

      While the Co. certainly may be related, I thought the discussion was about the Philadelphia firm of "J.E. Caldwell".

      What is the source for: "Edward F. was a big part of the JE Caldwell firm, which worked together."

      What book?

      Book information?

      Several online clock resources cite "J.E. Caldwell & Co." as a retailer of clock. No source (that I have found) refers to them as manufacturers-- specific mention is made of clocks made in England and France, that they then retailed.

      No mention is made of a connection to the later NY firm (nor is any connection mentioned in wiki).

    11. scottvez scottvez, 8 years ago
      Odd that a book title and source for: "Edward F. was a big part of the JE Caldwell firm, which worked together" has still not been provided.

      Well I did try anyway so we can move past this Scott .
    17. scottvez scottvez, 7 years ago
      PDAM made comments about me in his posts.

      I RESPONDED-- and that has upset you? So now YOU think it is important to "move past this". How about encouraging PDAM to "not go there"?

      I make it a habit to avoid PDAM, but I will RESPOND to HIS negative comments.

      From a National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Message Board post:
      "... I am actually surprised that there is not more detailed information on the clocks by E. F. Caldwell (not to be confused with the jeweler, J. E. Caldwell)."
      http://mb.nawcc.org/archive/index.php/t-95862.html

      The book "Philadelphia and Popular Philadelphians," Philadelphia: The North American, 1891, page 125, does not mention any association of a "Edward F. Caldwell with the firm J. E. Caldwell & Co.

      Can someone tell me more about this clock? I know it’s Caldwell & Co. Made in France but sold in Philadelphia and numbers 3166. 5. 9.
      Thank you.

      What a gorgeous clock... you should really set it up and enjoy the ticking and chimes!
