I am an avid clock collector and restorer.


  1. Hi, You have a German mantle clock, dating roughly to the Art Deco period, the 1930's. It was made by the Hamburg American Clock company (HAC), as indicated by the crossed arrow logo. The case is oak...
  2. Hi, Your clock is French, ca. 1880-1900. It is indeed made of marble and spelter, not bronze. The inscriptions on the dial are rather erased but the one at twelve o'clock would be the name of the ori...
  3. Hi, Your clock was not made in 1807, but it is the 1807 model produced by the William L. Gilbert Clock Co. that was based in Winsted, Conneticut. Your clock was actually made in the 1930's. It is kno...
  4. Hi, You have a 1930's German wall clock, commonly known as a box clock. However, the maker's mark(s) are likely on the movement, so only by removing the latter (which is not difficult, you just have...
  5. Hi, Your clock is in the Rococo style, and imitates a French clock that would be of the period, or slightly later. While the clock is good quality, it is no more than 40 years old. It was made in Ger...
  6. Hi, You have a rather nice hand-painted ceramic mantle clock, made around 1900, perhaps 1910. I'm pretty sure it is German, and appears to have a Roman influence, given the figures that may be deitie...
  7. Hi, What you have is the movement to a mid-19th century (around 1850-1870, I would think) French comptoise clock, which is basically a grandfather clock. They were typically produced in the Jura regi...
  8. Hi, You have a fantastic example of a very high quality two weight Vienna regulator wall clock. It was manufactured around 1870-1880, and the maker is German. However, to determine who that maker is ...
  9. Hi, A nice clock, indeed! As Bruce99 suggested, your clock has a German movement, likely made by Jauch in the 1970's. Jauch used this dial on many of their clocks. As said though, a look at the mo...
  10. You have a very nice gilded spelter mantle clock. It is actually French, made around 1880-1890, so it was definitely close to new when your grandmother recieved it. Are there any markings on the movem...
  11. Hi, Lenzkirsch is a German manufacturer as you probably know, and your clock was likely made around 1900-1920. A nice find! Regards.
  12. Hi, A wonderful clock and a fantastic price. These are also called Grande Sonnerie clocks, but also blind man's clocks as they repeat the hour at every quarter, so that if it were for example 11 o'cl...
  13. Hi, You have a very nice Japanese wall clock from the 1920's, perhaps slightly earlier. The trade mark is for the maker Seikosha. While this is a very well preserved example, Seikosha was a prolific ...
  14. Hi, Kaiser is indeed a German maker. However, your clock is more than likely from the 1950's-60's and not the 1920's. Regards.
  15. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
  16. Hi, I have not seen one with that finish before myself, although I doubt it's rare, as it was made by Smiths Enfield (probably in the 1950's-60's), an English company, as you may know, that produced ...
  17. Hi, Your clock is certainly German and likely from the 1920's. Are there any markings on the movement? Regards.
  18. Hi, Your clock is indeed French and does date to around 1880-1900. Perhaps if you remove the bell, you will find something like a maker's stamp on the movement. If you can tell what it says that will...
  19. Also, the wood is likely oak.
  20. Hi, Your clock dates to the 1940's-1950's. It would be called a mantle clock, however I'm not sure there is a particular style/design name for it but you could say Mid-Century-Modern. It's a pretty...
  21. Hi, Your clock appears to be French. It's commonly known in France as an Oeil de Boeuf (bull's eye) clock. It was probably made in the 1890's-1920's area. If you could share a picture or two of the m...
  22. Hi, All I know is that your nice little alarm clock was made in Hungary in the 1960's-1970's. Regards.
  23. Hi, Jerger was probably the maker of your clock. Chambord, Wedgefield were probably retailers. I thought that Linden was more a maker, but I'm not sure. Your clock dates to the 1960's or the 70's. R...
  24. Hi, Nice clock! All I can tell you is that it is most likely French. Regards.
  25. Hi, Lovely clock! It's actually not Art Deco. It dates to the 1960's-1970's or so. Perhaps if you could tell me what is marked on the dial, I could help you more. I'm just guessing that this clock mi...
  26. Hi, What a find!!! 8 bucks too? Well done. The clock probably dates from the 1950's or the 1960's. Regards.
  27. Hi, Yes, 1950's or 60's sounds like an appropriate date for this clock. Regards.
  28. Hi, 1960's or 1970's sounds like a good date for this clock. Regards.

  30. Hi, Your clock was probably made between the 1950's and the 1970's. Regards.
  31. Hi, Your clock was, as you say, made by Ingraham, around the 1980's. Regards.
  32. Hi, I haven't heard of Westwood before, but I think your clock was made by Jauch in the 1970's. Nice clock! Regards.
  33. Hi, Your clock's figurine is very well known in Germany as the "Uhrenträger" (the clock peddler). The clock is a reproduction of older 19th century versions and was made in Germany as a novelty in qu...
  34. Hi, Nice looking clock! Unfortunately, it a appears to be a 1970's-1980's Asian (Korean) reproduction. Thanks for sharing! Regards.

  47. Hi, In your description, you say it's dirty. I suggest you take the back off and oil it because, the dirt may stop it from running the time it was designed to. There is a certain oil for this, which ...
  48. A lovely clock. it may be French? These very rare. This was probably made in the mid 19th century.
  49. Hi, Nice clocks! A big year for these was 1967. Great finds!
  50. Hi, LeCoultre is a highly approved German/Swiss maker. They made alarm clocks, Atmos clocks and many more. I'm afraid I can't help with the value though, sorry about that. But it looks to be 1950's o...
