It's called a kitchen clock or "gingerbread" clock from the late Victorian period into the 1910's. It appears to be in very nice condition; possibly refinished. I think the pendulum is hanging backw...
No, too big for toy planes and cars. Just google Mikuni motorcycle carbs and you may find a match.
Just one more photo; can you photo the back plate of the movement so I can see if there is a maker's mark? Thanks.
Well, I don't know the exact model, but it's nearly identical to New Haven's Abbey model, which is also a Westminster chime. Normally, Sessions has a paper instruction sheet tacked to the inside of t...
Cast iron allowed US makers to imitate the more expensive Belgian black marble cases seen on French clocks. Cast iron was cheap and with a good coat of "japan black", it was hard to tell them apart w...
Look at the circular trade mark at the bottom of the movement. It likely says J. Freres (Japy Freres), S. Marti, or Vincenti. It's a French seven day, time and strike movement on nickeled brass bell...
Possibly a German "wag on the wall" or a shield clock. It's missing the chains, weights, pendulum, side cover panels, dial, and hands. While the movement looks intact, it will require a complete br...
Hedstrom may be the retailer. Can you turn it around and photograph the back of it and the movement, if possible? From the style, it appears to be 1940's.
Telechron was made in Ashland, Massachusetts. Yours dates to the late 1940's. They use a field coil and "rotor" assembly to power the clock. They are very reliable clocks. Yours appears to be an ...
It's what's commonly called an "anniversary clock" or "400 day clock" as it wound once a year on "the anniversary of its winding" or about every 400 days. The horological term for these are torsion c...
Circa 1900 to 1920 long drop wall clock, made in the USA either by Waterbury, Seth Thomas, Ansonia or the like.
Another "Adamantine" veneer in gold / brown. It's a seven day time and strike clock. I don't know the exact model, but it dates from 1880 to 1910 and in working order is about $250.00 to $325.00, de...
It's a Seth Thomas "Adamantine" (celluloid plastic veneer and columns) mantel clock, most likely the "Shasta" model. The Adamantine veneer is simulated rosewood.
Circa 1900 to 1920 mantel clock by Sessions. I don't know the exact model name.
It appears to be either a French or Austrian "Tic-tac" time and strike movement in a cast iron case. I can't tell if it has been repainted. Circa 1900
1920's German (there may be a mark on the back movement plate).
I do not recognize the mark, but it a German regulator movement.
It may be a Japanese clock in the American style, but is not a fake. It looks to date from the 1920's, so it is an antique. There should be no reason the clock cannot be put back into working order....
It's called a "Boyco" can set. One is for gas, one for water and one for oil. Service stations were not as easy to find in the 1910's and 20's, so this set was a common sight on many cars of the age...
May also be a British piece of Bristol glass as well, based on form and painting style.
Most likely they went to a 60's to 80's Japanese motorcycle. Hard to say exactly who, but as I recall, Yamaha used Mikuni's.
