  1. You're very welcome Sean! :)
  2. Kind of reminds me of the Sun which is at the center of our concept of time. Interesting post Sean and nice pick. Thanks for sharing!
  3. This is an alarm clock manufactured by the Gilbert Clock Company. The boxed "G" is their trademark and it also plainly says so around the bottom of the dial. They called this model their "Wake-Up A...
  4. Hello Don, If you have a warranty on the work done by your shop, contact them for help. That would be my advice. Good luck with it Bruce
  5. Thank you Re-In-Vintage, pw-collector and Sean68! Much appreciated!
  6. Thank you Re-In-Vintage, Melo1968, and Sean68 for stopping by and clicking on your "Love It" button. Very much appreciated and happy to know that you enjoyed the post.
  7. Having trouble with the link. Hopefully it will show up this time: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/68923919_antique-sessions-oak-assortment-a-no-4-clock
  8. Hi JMWheatley, You have a clock Sessions called their "Assortment New 'A' No. 1" from circa 1906. They were offered in Oak or Walnut. Yours looks fairly dark without prominent grain patterns so ...
  9. Beautiful, but I would hate to have to dust and keep it clean.
  10. Hi Sean! Thanks for stopping by and for the "Love It". Glad you enjoyed the write up and photos. :)
  11. Often you can date French clocks by the style and construction of their movements. Can you post a well-lit, sharply focused photo or two of the movement through the back door?
  12. Thank you for the "Love It"s PW-Collector and Yougottahavestuff. Glad you enjoyed the clock and very much appreciate you stopping by.
  13. Thank you ttomtucker!
  14. Thank you for the "Love It" and for your kind comments shareurpassion! You should post your clock too. We would love to see it. Thank you Designer!

  22. Thank you mikelv85
  23. Thank you for the "loves" Newfld (and for the very kind comments), Mikelv85, AnythingObscure, Watchsearcher and vetraio50 Glad you enjoyed the post. Much appreciated.
  24. Hello Marine and welcome to Collectors Weekly. Your clock has similarities to other models I've seen here so something that I posted before is appropriate for you as well... "Unless I've missed it, ...
  25. Hello junkmanjoe. I agree that if you plan to operate the clock, you should take it to a reputable clock shop and have the person look over your movement. It probably is in need of routine maintenan...
  26. B 08 means that the movement was manufactured in the last half of 1908. It's a nice looking heirloom with chime rods and an hourly strike on a large gong. I hope you're able to find a good home for...
  27. Hello Lamstrong20 and welcome to the Collectorsweekly website/community. I think that your clock may be from the 1930s. See this link: http://uv201.com/Clock_Pages/gibraltar_clocks.htm You should h...
  28. You're very welcome. Again, nice looking clock. Great job with it!
  29. Looks nice HEDVAL. You have an Ansonia "Monaco" from circa 1904. Here's another example: http://www.clockprices.com/ornate-ansonia-monaco-iron-case-mantle-clock.html Hope that solves your mystery.
  30. Thanks fortapache.
  31. Thank you vetraio50, SpiritBear, blunderbuss2 and AnythingObscure.
  32. Okay. I wouldn't worry about it. As I mentioned originally, if someone did install a movement after the clock was manufactured they did an excellent job of it. If it were mine I'd just enjoy it as ...
  33. You still there dharveyak? Do you have any more questions?
  34. There's some loss to the stenciling on your heirloom clock's glass tablet. The clock was manufactured by the "Ansonia" Clock Company. See this CW article to learn more about Ansonia. https://www.col...
  35. You're welcome. If that solves your mystery, please indicate so in your listing. Welcome to Collectors Weekly by the way.
  36. Hello harleygirl, It looks like your Grandmother's clock is a model called "Felix" made by the Waterbury Clock Co. Collectors Weekly has a nice, concise and informative article on Waterbury at thi...
  37. Okay, well one of the pivot holes on the right side of the movement right below the nut on the upper right hand side looks pretty punched up. That's not good but by itself I doubt it would stop the c...
  38. An antique clock is like any other machine in that it needs routine maintenance. You may be able to get it running again without "paying to have fixed" but it really should at least be looked over so...
  39. Hello Noble. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. What you have is generally called a "Triple Decker Clock" for obvious reasons. I think that your time-frame is probably accurate. It looks like your c...
  40. Hello again Don, That all depends on what was done, but if the job was done properly, that's not an unreasonable charge for a professional service at an established clock shop in most markets I think...
  41. It's a nice looking clock. The Seller must have listed on eBay as well since that's where I found an old listing for it in Google Images. You'd have a real tough time beating that price! You can ea...
  42. New Haven usually stamped one of the movement plates with their logo/name. Sometimes the stamp appeared on the inside surface of the plate, probably by accident. I'd look over the movement thoroughl...
  43. I see that this clock was listed on eBay/Canada at some point in recent history. Were you the Buyer or Seller? It is a New Haven model called their "Cumberland". It's made from enameled iron, not s...
  44. Do an advanced search for "Sold" listings on eBay. "Daniel Pratt Ogee (and/or 'OG') Clock". Looks nice.
  45. Nice looking clock. The pivots look pretty dry and one also looks like it has started to rust. You should probably have it looked at by a good clock repair shop. It may just need to be properly oil...
  46. Fortapache & Mrstyndall Thank you for stopping by and for the loves.
  47. Hi Thomas. Thanks for stopping by, for the love and for your interesting comments. Art often leaves much to the imagination. Clocks in paintings have been interpreted as the artist's depiction of...
  48. Thank you Vetraio50.
  49. Of course, that's where I've seen that style before. Thanks. Do you know the model name already?
  50. Thank you blunderbuss2 Newfld Toyrebel Ben and OfficialFuel for the loves. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed the post. Thanks also for your very kind remarks Newfld. I really love your art...
