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

    Sooth,
    Nice webpage. From previous postings, though, I would have expected to see some wood works clocks in your collection. I saw some in your photobucket section but not your personal collection. What's the distinction between the two sections?

    Mike, you are probably not the only one wondering the same thing.

    Basically, it's partially "on purpose" and partially laziness. I haven't updated my website very much, but basically I tend to only put up the photos of the finished, restored clocks that I have in good running order. Otherwise I usually have them up on the "coming soon" page.

    I TECHNICALLY have 4 wooden works clocks. I have a Chauncey Boardman Ogee clock, I have the Boardman & Wells, which still needs a painted tablet, and the proper movement, I have a Samuel Terry which needs a bit of work on the movement, and a tablet, and then I have a Seth Thomas wooden works (half column & splat) case that I'm working on. That clock is similar to the Boardman & Wells, where I have just a ratty old case, and I'm making the missing parts for it. I did get a half-decent dial for it, but I still need a movement.

    Some recent Jerome pick ups.

    The stenciled clock is a WW Jerome & Darrow, the other two are Jeromes.

    Ralph, are these your clocks? Do you have access to them? If so, would it be possible to get a closeup photo of the wooden works tablet, and possibly dimensions of the "boxy" style one.

    Here is my contribution to Jerome clocks. This is a miniature 17" tall weight driven 30hour time only clock. The movement is just half a standard Jerome OG movement. It has a very rare label from New York City. The decoration between the outer moulding and the door is pressed paper.

    Here is an update for the reply and photo I had posted on this thread.

    Today I have found a photo matching my clock which had intact labeling.
    The clock is Manufactured by United States Clock Co., Henry Terhune & Co., 3 Cortland St., N.Y.
    The name is Florence. It is an 8 day, walnut clock.

    Does any else have any information about this maker and approximate date of manufacturer?

    Thanks
    Pattye

    Pattye, Spittlers' and Bailey's American Clockmakers and Watchmakers has this to say:
    "United States Clock Co.: New York, NY. Ca 1872. Listed at 18 Cortlandt Street. Made fine floor and wall regulators, some with multiple dials. Also produced various styles of common wood and iron cased shelf clocks. Trademark has US Clock Co. with US intertwined. Clocks were often sold by Terhune and Edwards of New York City."
    Not much info. But it does give you a date.

    Posted elsewhere on a different thread; worth posting again. Similar to one of Ralph's; tablet may not be original and a previous owner covered the rather nice label with plexiglas, which I am fearful of removing lest the label come with it. It would not be too annoying except that the time side weight catches on the top edge and stops. I have to shim the clock forward a bit.

    Cool Re: Some Jerome clocks for viewing (By: Steven Thornberry)

    Hey Mike,

    Nice collection of clocks you have there! I had posted an inquiry earlier this morning about a C. Jerome 30 Hr. /weight movement that I have, and lo and behold, I found the movement in your photos of the Waterbury Square Rose clock. I was beginning to wonder if Jerome had maybe made the movement sometime after the demise of his business when he was doing some work for other companies. Guess you answered my question! Thanx.

    Dave,
    Glad I could help. I take yours is a loose movement? If cased, what style?

    Quick Question, On the Jerome Chauncey Austin, ILL. labels, how long did they make clocks(they had a factory fire right?)?

    Does anyone know how many clocks were made with the label?

    Thanks

    Pattye, Here is some additional info. Terhune & Botsford and Terhune and Edwards had various addresses on Cortlandt St. Hope this helps some.

    From New York Times 12 July 1881

    Failure of an Old Clock House
    H. Terhune & Son, wholesale dealers in clocks at No. 25 Murray street, have failed. The business was established over 30 years, and the firm was one of the leading houses in the jobbing trade. The failure was a surprise to the trade, as the firm was believed to be doing a successful business. The original firm was Terhune & Botsford who dissolved in 1855, being succeeded by Terhune & Edwards, who continued for a number of years, when they dissolved, and the present firm was formed nine years ago. The failure is attributed to bad debts and depreciation. The liabilities are reported at $25,000, while the actual value of the assets will probably not exceed $13,000. It is said that they propose a compromise at 25 cents on the dollar, in notes at one, two , three, and four months, and a meeting will be held shortly to consider the matter.

    Ray,
    What great information! Thanks for sharing it! I presume from all bits and pieces of information that United States Clock Company was the maker and Terhune and Edwards sold the clocks, much the same as the American Clock Company, also of Cortland Street.

    I now presume that Jerome's tenure in Illinois has nothing to do with my clock. Dad had identified it as US Clock Co of Illinois but the movement is clearly marked US Clock Co. with a superimposed U and S as the New York firm did.

    It is wonderful to finally identify my clock.

    Thanks again,
    Pattye
