  2. I just pulled the cardboard and stuff off it and I think it is made of cedar- actually had the name 'Lucy" on the back piece of the cardboard that I took off! Also found the initials JHMD on the top o...
  3. I think so too- they are different sizes ans widths- Would like to kind of wood this is also. It has paper and cardboard as well as looks like tar paper on the bottom- trying to waterproof possibly? I...

  7. Thanks for reply Trunkman- is this something you would refurbish// restain or simply leave in worn condition? I kind of like the rough worn look- I will add a wood strip (as close to original as poss...
  8. I think I will be on the look out for a original one in the $75 range that I could use the "rod" also on the closionne mercury enamel one I purchased- I see some "entire clock and all" ansonia crystal...
  9. I just replied!
  10. Thanks Caper- this thing may be too small to be a trunk- only 18 inches wide? Only one handle - no way for two people to grab? I think its just a heavy tool box... ???
  11. Thanks for the info Gargoyle- Had no idea!
  12. Bruce- sadly this came without the original pendulum- what would have been the correct one? The faux mercury style I assume- The one I purchased was cloisonne enameled with real mercury for a hundred ...
  13. I did find another in a google search for amalie racing oil #22
  14. My 2 cents- the car style 1974 AMC Matador- they actually sponsored NASCARS Bobby Allison in car #12 - also a car #16-- I see nothing on a car #22- I see not trademark insignias so maybe a pirated ...
  15. Also- any idea/chance? of where to find a correct finial for this thing? I am also looking for a brass urn or something that may complete the look. It currently has a simple lamp style finial on it.
  16. YES- I am still here! I have checked the box to get email alerts when someone responds in the future. Thanks Bruce for info- I know have this clock keeping great time- I have a faux mercury pendulu...
  17. I agree with you--it aesthetically looks better that way -But the original way allowed someone to remove the 4 screws and go inside the box- would not have been very secure-- I also know a decent size...
  18. I for sure know its age- I was thinking this was ROYAL BONN ANSONIA- I think this style was the top of the line- but it bears no royal bonn marking on bottom- see this page - http://www.clockguy.com/...

  20. I think I got lucky in purchasing them- I got them along with a Drueke board- they guy said they belonged to his deceased grandfather who traveled the world a good bit. He also said he remembered play...
  21. Thank you again for this wealth of information, I will look for some material in the corners when I get home. Interesting on the cardboard and leather handles- they seem to be "molded" that shape- I w...
  22. oops- I guess I could take one of the originals out of it and measure or use as a pattern- Bonehead question of the day goes to me!
  23. Thanks Jim for all the information. Yes it helped a lot! Can you give me some insight on what length leather handle to order for it? Do you normally order one an extra inch longer than the spacing o...
