  1. You're welcome Clarkesbabe. Thank you.
  2. ...........
  3. There wasn't at the time I posted that comment slackjack. The fact remains that there is still no acknowledgement here of the help we've already provided. You can do as you wish of course. I'm not ...
  4. I guess the owner has gone on to other things. Thanks for your help slackjack.
  5. Did you have any more questions Clarkesbabe, or did we solve your Mysteries?
  6. You called it. It's a Seth Thomas slackjack. For some reason I was thinking Ingraham. That's a cigar for you in my book.
  7. Nice catch slackjack. It does appear to be a Parlor Calendar No. 5 from circa 1886. Perhaps the dials have been replaced or painted since Seth Thomas was never shy about proudly placing their name pr...
  8. The one on the left is a Gilbert. It is from their Capitol Set and is called the "No. 43". It's made from Oak and is from circa 1904. Your clock could have been manufactured several years before or...
  9. The first one looks like it may be a Gilbert. Could you separate these clocks into their own posting and share up to four photos for each clock?
  10. Hi Rochelle & rlwindle. Thanks for stopping by and for your "Love Its". Glad you enjoyed our Sessions Clock
  11. Thanks for the "Love It" ttomtucker. Much appreciated!
  12. That long string of question marks was my attempt to paste the Cyrillic text into my post. That was definitely lost in the translation to our Collectors Weekly website, but Google has no problem wit...
  13. Neat clock Russ. If you want to take the time you could look up each letter here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic_alphabets and then copy and paste it into Google for translation. Interesting...
  14. Looks like an Ansonia "Bombay". See this link: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/174479-ansonia-open-escapement-mantel-clock?in=151-activity
  15. Hi Rschwanke, Welcome to Collectors Weekly! What a beautiful Chiming Tambour Mantel Clock. I bet it sounds very nice. I can't see the Gustav Becker logo, which looks to be hidden behind the chim...
  16. You're very welcome Dave. As far as needing service is concerned, don't they almost always? :) Hopefully there aren't a bunch of amateur attempts at servicing it hiding in there. They can make t...
  17. Hi PW, I found the Lorne in one of my references. It is listed as a Mahogany Cabinet Clock from circa 1913. Originally listed for $8.75. Accounting for inflation that would be about $227 in 20...
  18. There are only three other examples. I had trouble posting and it looks like some of the links duplicated but you get the idea. Two are very close to your clock. The other looks like a dead match. ...
  19. It looks very similar to a model identified by one Auctioneer as a 'Pequod' from circa 1900. Here are some other examples. Take a look and see what you think: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/it...
  20. Any markings on the back of the case?
  21. Thank you rlwindle for dropping by and for the "Love It".
  22. Thank you rlwindle!
  23. You're very welcome Trisha. If that solves your mystery, please be so kind as to check the little "Mystery Solved" box in your listing. If not, please let us know what other questions you have. Tha...
  24. Hello Trisha, You have a New Haven "Liffey" walnut wood case mantel clock from circa 1881. Here's another example: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/haven-liffey-kitchen-mantel-clock-306530795....
  25. Your photos don't seem to match up. Is something missing from the photo showing us the dial?
  26. Hello Hembree. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. You have a Wuersch Chiming Mantel Clock manufactured in the style of a Bracket Clock. It probably has a mechanical 8-day, three train German Chiming ...
  27. Thank you rlwindle!
  28. Hello NAP360. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Thanks for sharing your Seth Thomas "Cottage Clock". It looks like you may have their "Octagon Top 'O' " model from circa 1860. If so, it would be fi...
  29. Hello mcginty and welcome to Collectors Weekly. You have a model that Ansonia called their "No. 400". It is found on page 637 or noted authority Tran DuyLy's book on Ansonia Clocks and Watches. It ...
  30. ttomtucker, thank you for the "Love It". Glad that you enjoyed the posting.
  31. Yes, the cutting action is rotational. The taper allows custom sizing of the pivot hole (inner diameter) of the new bushing. Some may determine the desired size of the broached hole, and place a s...
  32. They are cutting broaches. They are 5-sided to make them better at self-centering in a hole that is out of round (center around the largest part of the hole). They are typically used to broach bus...
  33. Thank you Roycroftbooksfromme1! Much appreciated.
  34. Thank you Roycroftbooksfromme1. We really enjoy this grand old clock too. Wish we had more Presidents like Lincoln. Seems the mold was destroyed after he was born.
  35. Roycroftbooksfromme1, thank you for your "Love It". Happy to know that you enjoyed the Post! :)
  36. Hello ChaseCan. I believe you have a set of cutting broaches there. They are typically used to size the inner diameter of newly placed bushings. They are tapered to cover a wide range of sizes,...
  37. Beautiful
  38. Looking good!
  39. Hello! Welcome to CW. You have a Black Mantel Clock made of enameled wood. Sessions bought out the Welch Clock Co. in 1902 and by 1903 they started manufacturing clocks under the Sessions name. ...
  40. One other thing I forgot to mention, the little red circle above the six was to indicate if there had been a power outage. I believe that red indicated that there had been a power loss since the clo...
  41. Hello Tshane3000. Welcome to Collectors Weekly! You have a Seth Thomas model called the "Dynaire E" from circa 1954. It was also offered with an eight-day, 4-jewel windup movement. That model was ...
  42. You're very welcome CC
  43. The case looks like quarter-sawn Oak. The finish (probably shellac) is a little worn and weathered but you can easy coax it with a good, gentle cleaning with Murphy's Oil Soap solution. Allow it to ...
  44. There are several New Haven models which look similar to yours. What are the clock's dimensions?
  45. Here's a brief thread on the NAWCC's message board which discusses a clock similar to yours in some ways: https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/old-german-porcelain-blue-and-white-wall-clock-with-double-crosse...
  46. Here you are: https://clockhistory.com/0/document-7341-1.html?DocumentSearch%5Bdocument_name%5D=seth+thomas&DocumentSearch%5BdocumentDate%5D=&DocumentSearch%5Bdescription%5D=&DocumentSearch%5Bdocumen...
  47. If there is, Google would probably "know" about it.
  48. Seth Thomas offered the Century in several different versions as well as with spring wound and plug-in movements. You have the model name and date of manufacture right. What more were you hoping to ...
  49. You're very welcome cobramax. If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to post them here. Best, Bruce
  50. You're welcome cobramax. The hands illustrated in my reference are kind of Session's take on a style called "Fleur de Lis". See this auction listing for an example of the original hands: https:...
