    Default Kroeber Movement Identification

    It is well known that Florence Kroeber used movements
    made by others in his clocks, Jerome/New Haven being
    one of the commonest. Can anyone identify the maker of
    the Kroeber movement shown here? (The photo is from a
    recent ebaY listing.) Also, can anyone supply a
    complete list of makers whose movements are found in
    Kroeber clocks? Many thanks in advance to all who
    reply.

    Jeffery
    That is a Laporte Hubbel movement, identified by the umbrella cutouts which were then used as the wings for keys. The most common mvts found in Kroeber clocks were made by Seth Thomas and signed either ST or Kroeber.

    Kroeber used many Gilbert movements as well and generally marked them as F. Kroeber
