  1. You're welcome. Is your mystery solved, or do you have more questions?
  2. Hello and welcome to Collectors Weekly. Ansonia manufactured your heirloom. Your clocks' model name is right below the Royal Bonn mark on the back. You have a "La Clair". Collectors Weekly has a n...
  3. Hi, Welcome to the CW! See this link for tips on moving your grandfather clock: https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/moving-grandfather-clocks.81458/ If you have specific questions you can post them here ...
  4. Thanks for taking the time to photograph and share your photo of the movement. I've not seen anything like it before. The gears look to be made of stamped brass and steel. I can see where it has be...
  5. Very unusual. I don't think these clocks came with a grounded plug did they? :) Thanks for sharing.
  6. If you remove the back of the movement, there *may* be a maker's logo or mark on the back plate. You should be able to unwind the key (counter clockwise?) and remove those three little nuts (looks li...
  7. Photo is pretty dark. More of a Silhouette. Can you post a picture with better lighting or a flash? Also, is the Eagle just a topper or is it attached to the case? Thanks.
  8. As far as a key goes, enter this into a google or eBay search "New Haven Antique Clock Key Brass 6/3 double End Key". You should be able to find something for around $9-$10. If that solves your M...
  9. It looks like you have a New Haven "Inglewood" Westminster Chime Clock. See the last clock listed on this webpage for more details: http://hortonclocks.com/Completed_auctions/2016/Sep16/cabinets/cabi...
  10. The scrolling looks a little different from what is illustrated in my reference but your clock is very similar to the "Petrel" from circa 1900. You can search on that model name to see other examples.
  11. You may find this of interest: http://www.benwrightclocks.co.uk/pdf/condliff-collection.pdf
  12. Oh my! I didn't even notice that WD40 sitting in the background. Strange place to store it, no? Yikes! It's good for many things, but as slackjack states, lubricating clocks definitely *ain't* ...
  13. That is beautiful! Thanks for sharing. If you ever get a little nervous about having that much mercury hanging by a suspension spring, look into having the pendulum rod replaced by a rod of "Invar" ...
  14. You're very welcome Lamplover78. It's a nice looking Tambour and should display nicely among your antique collections. Sessions shifted their production lines from Mechanical to Electric in a big wa...
  15. Nice looking clock. Glad you didn't get ripped off and that you were able to get it running again. It will eventually need maintenance so you should continue looking for a reputable clock repair sho...
  16. Very interesting story. Thanks for sharing it and your clock with us. I don't know about the Civil War timing though. Your clock is a New Haven Wood cased mantel clock that was their "Merchants ...
  17. I think you're right on the date Lamplover. Early 30's. Nice clock. If you intend to run it, please look over this link on safety: http://www.kensclockclinic.com/pdf/Safety%20and%20your%20Vintage%...
  18. You're very welcome Mark. It's a nice looking clock with family history. Cleaned and waxed I bet it would be a beautiful decorative piece as is. Of course, these clocks can usually be made to run...
  19. Fredrich Mauthe, Schwenningen of Germany was the maker. The trademark stamp and the style of the case may be more along the lines of 1920s, but it's difficult to tell. See this link: https://www.a...
  20. Hello markK. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. This is a pretty old posting. Hard to believe I've been at this for so long. :) My resource has the model at "circa" 1939 which means it could have b...
  21. You're very welcome SpiritBear. It's a very nice clock. Looks like it was well cared for. Probably just needs routine maintenance. You never really know for sure but I would be surprised to find o...
  22. Hi SpiritBear. The model is named "Werra" from circa 1886. My reference has the wood as Black Walnut. It has a one day, strike movement. The dial has been replaced. The initials stand of E & J S...
  23. You may be able to find out more here: http://www.telechron.net/main.htm Good luck.
  24. You're very welcome Mominator. Thank you for indicating "Mystery Solved". We all volunteer our time here and a response and "thank you" from good folks like you is very much appreciated. If you ce...
  25. You're very welcome were. Nice clock. Glad we could help.
  26. It is a very popular model called the Ansonia "Rosalind" from circal 1904. See this link for another example or just do a search on the model's name. http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Mode...
  27. Hi. Your heirloom clock is from New Haven's "Camden Line". Three different models made up this line. Your example was referred to as "A". This line is from circa 1907 although your clock could hav...
  28. Hi. You have a tag there. What does it say? Anything more than "Hamilton"? Are there any markings or labels elsewhere on the case (on the back maybe)?
  29. What are you trying to find out about it?
  30. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
  31. Kind of hard to see all of the detail in your photos but it looks like you may have a Seth Thomas "Marble No. 1169" from circa 1893. If that is what you have, your clock will measure 9 1/2 inches in...
  32. Nice job. Congrats on the acquisition and interesting restoration. Never seen one of these before. I've always liked 400-day clocks but miss the sounds of a power hungry striking clock. Thanks for...
  33. Hi Mominator. Welcome to CW! You have an Ingraham "Bullion" from circa 1896. Your example has a few issues but seems to be a pretty nice clock none-the-less. Here's a link to check out; https://...
  34. Hello TheShop. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like you have a model Seth Thomas called their "Empire No. 148" from circa 1907. It's not clear in your photo but the be base of yoru clock app...
  35. You're very welcome rob. The dials that were offered by Ansonia can vary on the same model. The brown open escapement dial shown in the linked example is made of some type of rubber material. I hav...
  36. Maybe not. This may be how the clock came out of the factory. See this link for what appears to be an identical model identified as a Troubadour: http://www.antiqueclockprice.com/antique-ansonia-tr...
  37. In my reference material three different models featured this statuette. 1. Bard 2. Troubadour 3. Minstrel Look on the web for examples. The main differences between the models is the base and ...
  38. They shouldn't have been so cheap in recognizing safety records of employees. Maybe if they did, they wouldn't have had to pay out multi-million dollar settlements to victims of traffic accidents. ...
  39. Hi CarolinaGurl, Welcome. You have an Ansonia "Savoy" black enameled iron mantel clock, See this link for more details: http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Model-0862.php Thanks for shar...
  40. Hi Skinni, Thanks for providing the additional information. It's kind of maddening...like seeing pieces of a puzzle but not enough to see the whole picture. This is a common wood case style which w...
  41. Hello Dsage. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case, ...
  42. Hello Skinni39. Welcome to Collectors Weekly! In order to help identify your clock, please provide the following: Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case...
  43. Hi Auntiques. Can you add a clear closeup of the back of the clock and movement?
  44. I do not think this is an Ansonia Clock. While I can not find a matching model in my references, from the dial, winding arbor placements, hands and pendulum and general "style", I believe that you ...
  45. Go to Timesavers.com and do a search on French Pendulum. You'll see small, medium and large diameter examples. Measure the distance between the bottom of your suspension spring and the bottom of you...
  46. I forgot the link to the other example I found on the web. Here it is: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/9537987_11-ansonia-iron-case-bristol-extra-clock
  47. You have an Ansonia "Bristol Extra" from circa 1904 Here's an example which auctioned for $70 (plus Buyer's Premium) back in 2011. I think it was undervalued but anything can happen during an auctio...
  48. This model is called the "Arcadia" from circa 1923. Copy and paste this link into your browser to see another example: https://p1.liveauctioneers.com/275/686/313813_1_x.jpg?version=0&width=1600&form...
  49. Does this clock have a battery-powered movement, plug-in or is it a wind-up mechanical? Can you post more photos?
  50. Hello Scott, Always good to see you too. I have a very narrow bandwidth but I do what I can. Regards, Bruce
