  1. Hi Auntiques. Can you add a clear closeup of the back of the clock and movement?
  2. 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 ...
  3. 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...
  4. 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
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Does this clock have a battery-powered movement, plug-in or is it a wind-up mechanical? Can you post more photos?
  8. Hello Scott, Always good to see you too. I have a very narrow bandwidth but I do what I can. Regards, Bruce
  9. Like RRP, I see some similar designs in one of my reference books, but no exact match. Circa 1917 is probably a good educated guess. Regarding value, if you search "sold" listings on eBay using the ...
  10. Interesting design. Nice Clock. What Mystery are you looking to solve? Maybe we can help.
  11. Nice looking clock. Always carry it from the bottom, never lift from the top! See this link for a brief discussion of a very similar French Clock...possibly from 1880-1900: https://mb.nawcc.org/thr...
  12. I'm fairly certain that it takes a 4-0/4 double-ended key. The model is a Seth Thomas "Wales". One sold on eBay back in March 2018 for around $300 but that was unusually high for this model. Depend...
  13. I found you clock model in one of my references. Sessions sold "assortments" to dealers. An assortment of these types of wood case clocks had similar but distinct designs. Your clocks is referred t...
  14. Still there Rin_Tin_Tin? Do you have any questions or is your Mystery Solved?
  15. Still there Tom? Any questions or is your Mystery "Solved"?
  16. Ingraham "Octagon Doric". Agree with slackjack and SpiritBear, circa 1880.
  17. that should read 'black marble"...
  18. If your clock is made of black marbel, it's a model called the "El Santon" from circa 1904.
  19. Here's a link which you can copy and paste into your browser to see another example of the "Lilac": https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-ingraham-1890s-lilac-walnut-408307601 This one ...
  20. Actually, I'm fairly certain that one of the previous owners of your clock applied that flag painting or decal to the clock. The clock model is called the "Lilac" reportedly from circa 1896. The Pa...
  21. I doubt that flag is original to the clock.
  22. If the approximate dates are accurate, your clock would have been made around the time that the 5th USS Alabama (SP-1052) was made and "enrolled" in a Naval Reserve capacity. That is according to Wik...
  23. You may have a model Seth Thomas called the "Ship's Lever No. 6" from circa 1915. Your example could have been manufactured several years before or after that approximate date. It's described as a...
  24. Here are links to some other examples like your clock: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/56095561_vintage-ansonia-brass-and-porcelain-crystal-regulator Auctioned for $1,488 on 10/1/2017 https:...
  25. Hi. You have an Ansonia "Crystal Regulator No. 5". Ansonia made a series of these Royal Bonn Porcelain Crystal Regulators number 1 through 8. These models were from circa 1906 and could have been m...
  26. You have an Ansonia "St. Cloud" Enameled Iron Mantel Clock. From circa 1901 (approximately) Your clock could have been manufactured a few years before or after that date. If that answers your quest...
  27. Hi. You have all the identifying information. I wouldn't be too concerned with finding an exact match. You may find another example but you might not. Seth Thomas altered small decorative details ...
  28. Hello Steveee, welcome to Collectors Weekly. You've pretty much told us what you have. What would you like to know about it? Here's another example on the net with a little additional information:...
  29. BTW, Welcome to Collectors Weekly. LOTS to see here. Found some other examples of clocks in this line: Giant No. 1: https://p2.liveauctioneers.com/289/54150/26271340_1_l.jpg Giant No. 2: ...
  30. This is a Wood Case Mantel Clock. The style is popularly known as Gingerbread Clocks, or Kitchen Clocks. Seth Thomas offered several "Series" model lines. Their "City" and "Metal" series are two ...
  31. Hi. Can't find any other examples of this model but based on auction results of similar "mini" or "dresser" clocks I would guesstimate somewhere around $50 give or take $25. Depending on condition a...
  32. Not sure how common this model is. I've not seen it before your posting but there are *many* clocks that I haven't seen. :)
  33. Hi. As the label indicates you have the Seth Thomas Brewster Mini. This model if from circa 1924. As described in my reference it should have a 1-day lever time movement No. 102 with a 2-inch porce...
  34. Could you post photo(s) of the porcelain case?
  35. Nice. Thanks for sharing.
  36. Take a clean wad of cotton, dampen it with clean water and use it to gently apply a paste of Cream of Tartar. If done with care, this should help to clean and brighten the silvering without damaging...
  37. Still there?
  38. P.S., glad you decided to keep the clock in its original condition. If an original movement is missing or destroyed, a quartz insert may be a good option, but it would be a last resort. Usually muc...
  39. Hello Sev64rey, Welcome to CW. I looks like you may have one of Sessions' Miniature Tambour models called the "Dart" from circa 1923. The Dart measures on 9 1/2" Long by 4 1/4 inches High. It's ...
  40. Yes. See: http://www.clockprices.com/seth-thomas-metal-no-2-oak-mantle-clock.html
  41. Gilbert has the number 1807 on a number of styles or models of their clocks. If you do an internet search on Gilbert 1807 you'll easily find a few examples (not all of them tambours). This is a tam...
  42. Cindy is exactly right. Seth Thomas called this their "Sharp Gothic". It's from circa 1879. It was offered with a 30-hour, as well as an 8-day movement. Seth Thomas also offered an alarm option. ...
  43. Merry Christmas and thanks for sharing your lovely clock with us.
  44. Were you able to adjust the clock for more accuracy Don? Did you have any more questions?
  45. Could be a Sunflower, or the Sun. Nice! Thanks for sharing. :)
  46. Hello Don, Your heirloom belongs to a style of clocks generally called "Tambours". This style was very popular in the 1920's and 30's. I think your clock may be from circa 1923 based upon similar...
  47. Hello familyresearcher. Welcome to Collectorsweekly. I can help you with this. Your heirloom Seth Thomas is from their "Metal Series". Yours is called "Metals No. 1". It was made in Oak. My refe...
  48. Nice SpiritBear. Thanks for sharing it with us. I've been told that an acceptable error rate for a mass produced mechanical clock is around 3 minutes plus or minus in 1 week (for an 8-day movement)....
  49. Can you post more photos of the mechanism you're referring to? If you don't mind my asking, what does your Dad remember about it?
  50. You still there Timndiane? If so, any other questions?
