    Default Small inlaid American mantle clock.

    This little mantle clock belongs to my grandmother. I believe it was made around 1890-1920. It was made in the USA, according to the only marking on the movement and the clock. Could you please tell me who made it? Thanks!

    It's a Gilbert. The movement is shown in Tran's Gilbert book as Movement No. 4. They made a number of these small tambours, but I did not find this one in Tran. They often were given numerical designations. Look on the bottom of the clock for a series of 4 numbers, and that's quite possibly what is was called, though some also had names.

    Many of these little tambours are shown from the 1922, 1925, and 1929 catalogues, though once in a while one is shown from the mid-teens.
