    Default Some Jerome clocks for viewing

    Finally got around to doing a simple website with some of the clocks in my collection. Feel free to browse and to comment. I have also noticed the worthy effort by kirxclox to promote a collectors' gallery. Impressive work.

    My site is at: http://home.earthlink.net/~mmbailey39/

    Nice collection Mike. This would be a good sized collection for most of us, yet you say "some". How many clocks are in your collection? They all look great.

    Rollerpen and fume happy,
    Thanks. I ended up getting more of my clocks posted than I thought I would, so I should have said "most" of my clocks. I have a handful more still packed away in a closet after our move last summer.

    Sam,
    Again thanks for all your efforts, work and patience. We really need to keep this at the top of this MB to keep it active.

    Mike (Jerome Collector),
    A nice site in deed... There is also a special spot in my collection for Jerome and associates. Yours would make a nice addition to the kirxclox's "Clocks, A Collector's Gallery"

    Here is a link to mine.>> http://picasaweb.google.com/rvtyme/Jerome

    ClockJim,

    I hope to be able to get around to contributing to the kirxclox website.

    I liked your site (Jerome section plus the others). Very eclectic collection. The Jerome patent case clock shows off very nicely. Don't know what it is about them, but they're pleasing to the eye.

    I enjoyed your collection. I am especially interested in your US Clock Co. of Illinois example.
    Do you have any literature giving more information on that company? I would be interested in a catalog since I've only found a catalog on a firm in New York City. I own a small walnut mantle clock with a US Clock Co of Illinois movement and would appreciate more information on it. The case has a very classic design that seems appropriate for Jerome's influence.

    Thanks again,
    Pattye

    Pattye,

    The most comprehensive source of info on the US Clock & Brass Co (and it isn't much) that I know of is Chris Bailey's "From Rags to Riches to Rags: The Story of Chauncey Jerome" (NAWCC Bulletin Supplement #15, Spring 1986). Chris shows an example of a walnut mantle clock made by the firm, plus a steeple clock and an OG. It would be neat if the walnut clock matches your clock. Jerome's autobiography also contains some info. I'm not aware of any other sources, but I also haven't spent too much time on the latter part of Jerome's career. Hope this helps.

    Mike

    Thanks, Mike,
    I have read the Bailey article. I wish there was more information about the later years.
    I am posting a photo of my clock. It was bought in northwestern KY near the Illinois border and belonged to my dad.
    Obviously, it needs a more authentic tablet (has a decal) and dial. I would love to restore it to as near original as possible.
    Thanks again,
    Pattye

    Thanks, Jim, I also enjoyed reviewing your Jerome clocks.

    Earlier this year I posted a photo of a Mother-of-Pearl-decorated cottage- style clock on a thread entitled "Re:Chauncy Jerome?"

    Although the case contains a Seth Thomas movement, there are several examples of Jerome clocks on the Savage identification site which are very similar. I question the authenticity of the ST movement and wonder what a proper Jerome movement would be. Do you have photos of the Jerome movements in your cottage clocks? I would certainly like to see them, if so.

    Thanks
    Pattye

    My little Jerome beauty; a C. Jerome "mantel lever" 30 hour timepiece with rosewood case that was illustrated in Jerome's 1853 catalog. Height is 10 inches. Dial restored by the Dial House.

    This is the movement in the C. Jerome mantel lever.

    This is the movement in the C. Jerome mantel lever.
    This is a S B Jerome movement in a gallery clock with alarm.
