    Default New Haven Clock CoTambour 81-Any Info? (By: popeye)

    Hi Popeye. Looks to me like a 1920's vintage tambour clock. It is not listed in my Tran Duy Ly New Haven book. No chimes, just hour and half hour strike. Discussing values is a no-no on this board. Check for similar clocks on ebay to give you an idea of values. It looks like someone cleaned the numbers off the dial. Replacing the dial not an option, although you may be able to highlite them with a black sharpie pen. Harold

    Not sure, POPS what exactly you're asking. "Does vintage mean anything?" "VINTAGE" is just another word for "AGE". Specifically with regards to your clock and question - it means that this clock with respect to clock collecting - is not very old. Now Autos and Radios have only been made for a hundred years. So an eighty year old car is considered "vintage". Another meaning. But an eighty year old car is considered "OLD". "AGE" is relative. I don't have any relatives so I guess I'm old.

    'Vintage' can be used for anything you want it to, like 'Classic' :biggrin:
    The only definitive use I know is for (European) vintage cars - made after 1/1/1905 but before 1/1/1930, but does not apply in USA.
    AFAIK, this is how the term was first used (cars in England) other than for wine.
    Given that ebayers list clocks from 1950 in the pre-1900 category, all these things are fairly meaningless.
    Now for your dial:
    Clean all the remains off from the markings, use chemical silvering, and use dial transfer for numbering. Easily available.
