  8. Bruce99, It does sound beautiful, I have another Kienzle wall clock, that has a sweet chime, but it just doesn't compare. The only thing about this clock is that after the Westminster chime ends, th...

  10. racer4four Thanks, and these four are enough for me. Russ
  11. California would be the ideal place to find them especially near wineries. they are grape shears used for cutting stalk but not hurting the fruit. I have a cousin in Sausalito.
  12. Thanks, Newfld.
  13. Thanks Bruce99
  14. Watchsearcher, I am the same way.
  15. Those alarms will raise the dead when they go off. My Gilbert 3205 scared the daylights out of me when it went off. Great clock
  16. The motors are fine and they do get hot, if you want, place a thin piece of aluminum (not foil) next to the motor to dissipate the heat. RLW
  17. Your clock was made by MARPA a French clock company, there is little info available on this company, their trademark was a leaping Gazelle, the name appears on their marble and alabaster clock faces a...
  18. The year of manufacturing is stamped on the movement, you have to remove the hands, the alarm ring and the dial, the year is located near the clock stem.

  25. You are all knowing on everything, Still pathetic

  30. Thanks for all the loves. Russ
  31. kwqd, Thanks. Russ
  32. Newfld, Nijinsky, if I recall got in trouble for being scantily clad during his performances of The Afternoon of a Faun and his other ballets Jeux and Le Sacre du printemps.
  33. I forgot to mention that it does chime on the hour and half hour. The chime coil is large.
  34. The clock has a opening cut out of the bottom near the front of the clock that is about 4" which makes me think that it was mounted on something that fit in that slot (you can barely see it in the for...

  38. Newfld When I walked into the hotel, I went to the front desk and asked where the round table was. The clerk behind the desk told me that it was a replica of the original, then pointed to the right ...
  39. Mr. Fitz and Mr. Floyd were in a relationship with one another, it was common news at the company that was based in Farmers Branch TX just outside of Dallas on Luna Rd.(Then). From what I understand...
  40. This budgie box was manufactured for Fitz and Floyd in 1983. I worked for them in their Import section rating and clearing shipments through customs. Yoshi was the head buyer for giftware and some c...
  41. No I do not believe she is from the 20's she is probably mid to late 30's. I have her without the light. Hirsch imported and bought European molds before WWI and after. The argument that Hirsch did n...
  42. pw-collector, good luck Dave.
  43. Is it the 2 inch or the 5, I have a copper one, and an Ivory one both with boxes and tags. I also have a blue 2 inch one without the box.
  44. Great clock/watch, I have been on the lookout for one of these.
  45. The Arlington is my favorite also. jscotto363.
  46. More than likely the pendulum needs to be adjusted. It is suspended through a kruch that causes the the escapement to advance when the pudendum swings back and forth. https://www.youtube.com/watch...
