    Default New Haven Figural "Ivanhoe"

    Greetings all,

    This clock was brought to me for repair the end of the week and I thought I would share it with you.

    It is a New Haven figural, "Ivanhoe", Circa 1900 and was originally available in gilt or bronze. This was bronze and still has a pretty good original finish. I haven't even removed all the dust yet and it still looks good.

    Sadly, the dial has had a much harder life than the rest of the clock. Many cracks and breaks. It will run but needs cleaning and may have a strike problem.

    All in all a nice old clock with a good original finish. Cost in 1900 was $23.75.

    Best,

    Richard T.

    Hello Richard,

    Is the dial porcelain or painted? If it is porcelain - wouldn't many of hairlines disappear or become much less visible if you just cleaned it?

    Curious? Andy Dervan

    Hello Andy,

    The dial is porcelain and will benefit from a gentle cleaning. I plan to do that and hope that none of the cracked pieces separate from the copper base.

    Best,

    Richard T.
