  8. West Germany was in existence from 23 May 1949 and German reunification on 3 October 1990. As fhrjr2 mentions, a good look at the movement should give us more to go on. Clocks are machines. Like...

  10. Hi Antique Don, Thanks for sharing this very interesting "mural" porcelain clock. I see that the dial says "Made in Germany". Are there any other markings elsewhere on the clock or movement? Wh...

  27. Thank you Russ!
  28. Thanks Russ. I agree. It's hard to ignore these alarms. They are loud, proud and in your ear! :)
  29. Hello HayleyS, Clock oil has very specific requirements and should be used sparingly. If not, it doesn't stay where it needs to be and only attracts dust and airborne contaminants . Here is a c...
  30. Hello HayleyS, It looks to me like your heirloom is an early 20th Century French Clock with a Japy movement. You can get a quick summary of French Clocks here: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/clo...
  31. Can you post a photo of it all lit up? Thanks for sharing.
  32. Thank you Hoot60! Glad you enjoyed our Ingraham Cherubs.
  33. Surviving labels can tell the story. I don't think that the engraved numbers were done at the factory. They look to have been done by hand. I have no idea what they indicate. If you haven't do...
  34. Hi, Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks! It looks like you have a nice example of the Ansonia "La Tosca" Royal Bonn Porcelain Mantel Clock from around circa 1900. See this link for more detail...
  35. Thanks charcoal!
  36. Thank you charcoal.
  37. That's very interesting Chippawa. Seth Thomas founded his company in Plymouth Hollow, Connecticut. In 1875 it was later renamed Thomaston in honor of Seth Thomas.
  38. Hello Ddoell. Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks! Thank you for sharing such an impressive Time Piece. Please tell us more. Who manufactured it? Do you have any provenance information on it? O...
  39. Simbacat, thank you for stopping in and for the Love it appreciation.
  40. Hi, It looks to me that perhaps someone has replaced the original pendulum movement with a ding-dong strike balance wheel regulated movement. The dial looks to have been replaced or altered.. ...
  41. You're very welcome Chippawa. I'm glad we could help. The Seth Thomas No. 124 is a good, reliable movement. Shops that know how to work with them can help you get the most enjoyment out of your Fam...
  42. As always, thank you for stopping by Officialfuel! Glad you liked our Ansonia Crystal Regulator.
  43. Hello Chippawa, I suspect that your clock came from the Factory that way. "Plymouth" was a subsidiary of Seth Thomas which had been purchased by General Time by the time your clock was manufac...
  44. Hi Officialfuel and thank you for stopping by with a "Love it" click! Much appreciated.
  45. Hello Chippawa, Welcome to Collectors Weekly: Clocks! Your Aunt's clock may have a Plymouth Dial, but the case is identical to the Seth Thomas "Falsbury 2W" from circa 1939. If Plymouth had their ...
  46. That's a nice iconic American Sports Car Cokeman. Congratulations! I would be jealous but I know that I'd probably just end up in jail or dead with that much horsepower! :) That's a LOT of Machi...
  47. Take a look at this link for more info: https://www.clockworks.com/clock-movement.html
  48. Hi, I think it's a "Jauch" Mantel Clock. The stylized "U" does look like an "N". Nice clock. Thanks for sharing it with us. Regards, Bruce
  49. Hi Hoot60! Thank you for stopping by to have a look at our Sessions Clock. Glad that you liked it. Of course, thanks also for your kind comment and "Love it" click. :)
