  1. Very nice. Thanks for taking the time to pull this rabbit out of your hat, photograph and list him for us. I take it that the clock mechanism is a battery powered quartz unit? If so, what kind of ...
  2. I can't find much on this Manufacturer in the US You might try contacting this French Museum to see if they can help or direct you. http://www.musee-horlogerie-aliermont.fr/ If you don't speak...
  3. While we're all waiting, here's my point: Cokeman said..."They told me it was ready and when I inspected it they had oil on the door panel and steering wheel and up under the hood. The technician h...
  4. Really? Educate me then. Exactly what was/is your point?
  5. Great post! Love the photos and the link to the commercial. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Another very nice piece Newfld. Do you have UV light? I wonder if it fluoresces? Thank you for sharing.
  7. Thank Hoot60. For your information I have been a job of pushing a broom all day. It's not a "profession". It's a freaking job. I took pride in doing a good job and was moved up to driving a fork l...
  8. You're very welcome Chunder1981! I'm glad that we could help. Thanks again for sharing your heirloom with us. Regards, Bruce
  9. Hi. Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks! Your heirloom clock is a Marble Cased model that Ansonia called "El Techo" from circa 1907. Your particular clock could have been manufactured several ye...
  10. If they can't do good work on this car they should probably do something else for a living...maybe push a broom all day long.
  11. Just clean it well. Try applying GOJO (without pumice) with clean. soft cloth rags. Keep applying until the rags no longer pick up any dirt and move to a new section. Use old toothbrushes, Q-tips, ...
  12. Thank you for stopping by and for the "Love it" click Cokeman1959. Much appreciated!
  13. No real need to involve a clock shop unless you're seriously considering having work done on it. You can search "Sold" eBay listings to get some idea of what clocks like yours are selling for. ...
  14. Hello Steve74, In my opinion Ansonia made some of the nicest American Crystal Regulators. Much depends upon your parents personal tastes, your budget and the time you have to find what you're looki...
  15. Hi. I would guesstimate $150 give or take $50. Here's a recent eBay sold listing for this model ($115). It will eventually disappear but it should still be active for a few months. https://www...
  16. Being a Kienzle I'm betting that it sounds as good as it looks too, right? Thanks for sharing Russ.
  17. You're welcome JMKinden. I suspect that the dial/face is original. It has the "Plymouth" brand name and it fits the Movement's winding and regulation arbors very well. Also, the font of the Arabi...
  18. Hey Russ. Thanks for dropping by and for your "Love it" click of approval. Glad you liked our Ansonia Regulator No. 4. We went to an auction during a snow storm to get it. :)
  19. You're welcome. I can guarantee that you have an "Ennis". It must not be very common. Perhaps not many were made or sold since they don't seem to show up in the Market very often. If that s...
  20. Hi JMKinden, Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks! Your heirloom clock is a "Plymouth" brand, which was made by the Seth Thomas Clock Company circa 1940 give or take 10 years. The label narrow...
  21. It's an "Ennis". The label placed by Waterbury is confirmation enough for most collectors. I've looked and did not see another example online. Perhaps it's not a common model. You can try your ow...
  22. Hello Mmelt, Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks. Your clock is indeed Waterbury's "Ennis". Having an intact label is not very common. It's from circa 1905 although your particular clock cou...
  23. These are cute. Thank you for sharing your collections with us Newfld. I would like to extend Season's Greetings to you and yours as well. Hopefully things will be back to a better "normal" for nor...
  24. Hi Newfld! Thank you for stopping by with your "Love it" click, and for your wonderful Season's Greetings. I wish the same for you. Thanks again!
  25. Hello and welcome to Collectors Weekly, clocks. You do have an unusual and well cared for antique Ansonia there. I can not find this model in any of my usual references. The stenciling on the glas...
  26. My advice would be to try using Cream of Tartar on the silver dial and nothing abrasive at all.
  27. You're very welcome Bob. I'm glad that we could help. Regards, Bruce
  28. Hi, You have an Ansonia Westminster Chiming Tambour Mantel Clock. The Tambour style case is also sometimes called "Camel Hump" or "Camel Back" also a "Napoleon Hat". Tambour means "Drum" which re...
  29. Hi Bob, Thank you. That bit of info helps a great deal. I think you have a slightly altered Welch Clock Co. model called the "Sorma" from circa 1901. Here's another example online: http://ho...
  30. I think you may find this link helpful: https://abouttime-clockmaking.com/pdfs/alarms_of_american_mantel_clocks_labounty.pdf
  31. Hi Bob, The movement is stamped Welch so if it is original to the case I would have to assume that this is a Welch Clock. The Company was bought and renamed the Sessions Clock Company in 1903: h...
  32. You're very welcome GaryzGary. Thanks again for sharing your collection with us.
  33. BTW, I hope that solves your mystery. If so, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your posting. Thanks again.
  34. Hi GaryzGary, Yes, your Dealer did some very fine work on your clocks. The Sessions is a model they called "Clyde" from circa 1908. Your example could have been manufactured several years before ...

  45. Hello PFresbury, Welcome to Collectors Weekly, Clocks. You and your husband have a model called the "Clinton". It is from circa 1894 and the case is made of Black Walnut. They originally listed fo...
  46. You're very welcome tdesimone. I'm glad we could help. There are a LOT of different models. More often than not we can't find them in any of our references. The simulated marble paint is a nice to...
  47. Chauncey Jerome pioneered/developed the use of brass in manufactured clock movements. Prior to his innovations, most clock movements made in American used wood for both the plates and gears. The ope...
